If you think there is no easy way to lose weight - think
again. The easiest weight loss method could have been
staring you right in the face all this time. Here it goes:
stop drinking soft drinks. Drink water instead.
Dumping the soft drinks from your diet will result in
dropping some serious pounds. Think about it:
- A can of coke packs in 150 calories.
- Just 3 cans of coke add up to 450 calories.
Now, you are in for a shock: a cheeseburger sets you back
by only 360 calories, which is less than those 3 cans of
coke. Now, what would you rather have: a warm juicy
cheeseburger or the sugary water from the can?
If you currently drink 3 soda cans a day, you can save 450
daily calories by switching to plain water. Water has zero
calories. Let's do the math: since one pound of fat equals
to 3500 calories, you will lose roughly one pound per week
just by leaving the coke behind.
Yes, you've heard it right - you can lose a pound of fat
every week while you eat as much as you normally do. No
dieting, no starving - don't change a thing about what you
eat. The only thing you change is what you drink.
Now, let's do some more math, which gets better and
better. 1 lb per week equals 4 pounds per month. Multiply
4 pounds by 12 months, and we get 48 lbs of ugly fat per
Calorie savings on drinks provide you with yet another
advantage: you can now eat more and still lose weight. For
example, if you substituted 3 cans of soda every day with
water, you have 450 calories to play with. If you eat an
extra piece of chocolate that's worth 200 calories, you
still save 250 calories and lose 24 lbs per year.
I can now almost hear you say - "Well, Melanie, what if I
don't drink 3 cans of coke a day? I only drink one soft
drink for lunch!" Good for you! Now, consider this: if
you swap this lunchtime coke with water, you will lose 16
pounds per year. How's that for a freebie weight loss?
Since soft drinks don't make you full, it is very easy to
dump them. Drinks are "liquid calories", "empty calories" -
calories that are just not worth it. Soda drinks have no
nutritional value - just useless sugars and chemicals that
rot your teeth, make you gain weight and don't even fill
Take advantage of the easiest weight loss tip on Earth -
eat your calories, don't drink them.
