Are you working out so hard and yet still find it hard to shed that weight? The answer might just be in that beverage that you are ingesting. Excess sugar would more than often be retained in the body in the form of fat storage.
A typical guide is to ensure that simple sugar take up no more than 10 per cent (about 8 – 11 teaspoons) of your daily calorie intake.
Skip the carbonated drink
These are mostly empty calories with virtually no nutritional content.
Add slices of lemon or cucumber into a jug of water if you crave for some flavor in your drink.
Subtract juice concentrate from your diet
Opt for fresh fruit juice instead of the sugar laced and processed fruit concentrate.
Sweeten yogurt naturally
Choose plain yogurt over flavoured ones and add in freshly diced apples, mangoes, peaches etc.
Choose whole fruits or nuts (almonds, walnuts, pine nuts, Brazil nuts etc) over energy bars, chocolate and sweeten drinks
