Hello GetReal Challengers! Here is your Get Healthy Challenge for this week….you ready??
Banish Liquid Calories!
Think what you drink couldn’t really effect your weight loss efforts? Think again. If you’re committed to losing weight, you need to take a hard look at your beverages. They could be standing in the way of you reaching your goals.
The calories in regular pop, juice (yes, even 100% natural, no sugar added), 2% or homo milk, cream and sugar in coffee, iced tea, frozen coffees, smoothies and alcohol add up quickly, can slow down weight loss, and easily cause weight gain.
Did You Know?
1 cup of juice = two whole fruits in terms of calories but whole fruits have fibre, making them way more filling than juice. So don’t drink your fruit. Eat it.
A medium double double coffee from Tim Hortons has over 200 calories! 200 extra calories everyday for a year can cause 20lb of weight gain. Yuck.
A large Starbucks Mocha Coconut Frappuccino with whipped cream adds a whopping 710 calories and 26 grams of fat. Yikes!
