The Worst Drinks for Weight Loss

14 November 2020


When we think about weight loss, we are often looking at the calories we are eating and the types of foods that we are eating. Rarely do we consider that the drinks we consume could be just as bad as the foods that we are avoiding. For this reason, many people may go on a strict diet, but if they are not paying attention to what they are drinking, they may notice that they are not losing weight.

What Drinks to Avoid to Lose Weight

There are several drinks that you are going to want to avoid when you are wanting to lose weight. While they may seem like a healthy option, you will find that the sugars in these are often what leads to weight gain. Some of the drinks to avoid when you are wanting to lose weight include

  • Soda of any kind, even diet sodas!
  • Sweet tea
  • Coffee drinks that are full of sugar like those that you may indulge in from time to time
  • Fruity cocktails, even if they do not include the alcohol
  • Sports drinks that are meant to hydrate you, as these things are full of sugar!
  • Fruit smoothies that are pre-made as they often include things other than fruit

If you are serious about weight loss, then what you drink matters!

What is the Best Alcoholic Drink When Trying to Lose Weight?

For those who are looking to lose weight, yet still want to indulge in an alcoholic drink from time to time, there are some drinks that are going to be fine to drink while losing weight. Whether you need to know what to order when at an event or you are looking to find a way to have a drink with friends, these are the alcoholic drinks that you can drink without issue:

  • Champagne
  • Red wine
  • Vodka
  • Light beer
  • Tequila

Now, remember that there should be drank on their own, not mixed with fruity concoctions to give them a better taste. For example, you may find that a vodka on the rocks is something to drink, not a cosmos that is made with vodka. Red wine should also be full bodied as it has a great taste and even offers health benefits to those who drink this.

If you are wanting to lose weight, be sure that you pay attention to what you drink...this is just as important as what you eat.
