I know many of us are challenged to cut calories in order to create a deficit if we are trying to lose weight. One of the hidden “treasures” of calories has to do with what you drink! I know who knew? I am down to 133 lbs from 137 lbs and I did a simple thing – cut out all flavored beverages and just stuck to drinking water day in and day out (breakfast, lunch and dinner). I do like white wine and relegated that to weekend consumption now vs. during the week in the evenings like before.
I also upped the high impact cardio with sprints and suicides in boot camp but trust me, if I did not get a handle on what I was drinking…then I am not sure I would see the results I am finally starting to see. Actually I lie – I do not see the change but many others say they see the change in me and that I have stepped up my game in fitness physically. I think it takes a while for our brain to catch up since we see ourselves daily but I am glad to receive the compliments.
Try cutting out calorie beverages M-F and drink them only on weekends. Let me know if you see any results after one month. I am sure you will! Happy drinking!
