Drinking For Weight Loss
If you are trying to lose fat, what you drink is every bit as important as what you eat. Many drinks and fruit juices are high in sugars and will not aid fat loss.
Drink Plenty of Water
The Number One Rule! Drink lots of water! The benefits are many.
What About Coffee?
Yes we've all been told we drink too much coffee. But to be honest - a cup or two a day will not affect a weight loss program. Just don't overdo it.
Many diet pills and supplements have caffeine included as part of the active ingredients - but this doesn't mean we should start drinking lots of coffee. If you're really serious, then try to minimize the amount of high-fat milks (no creamy latte's).
Caffeine is a diuretic and can cause fluid loss - so remember to drink extra water if you're having coffee.
Just be careful when going to restaurants and ordering their specialty coffees and gourmet varieties as often they are loaded with calories. Especially beware of McDonald's and Burger King's Iced Coffee and other's ice cream based coffee drinks.
