Simple, Science-Backed Diet Tips To Lose Weight

Soda, juice, and energy drinks all contain calories. Nutritionists call these “empty calories,” ones that do not contribute to your health or body functions. In other words, you might be drinking unnecessary calories when you do not need to.

Replace these drinks with healthier options. Substitute soda with flavored sparkling water. Make coffee at home, and skip the sweetened creamers. For a more flavorful drink, add lemon or lime, a small splash of juice, or natural sweeteners like Stevia or honey.
