Don’t Drink Your Calories

Don’t Drink Your Calories

When you are trying to lose weight, every calorie counts! Cutting out sugary drinks like juice and soda are an easy way to eliminate up to 140 calories per serving. Dr. Shillingford in Boca Raton florida advises all of his obesity surgery patients to be cautious not to drink unnecessary calories; think of how many spoons of sugar just go into a coke!

We all know water is best, but it can be boring. Jazz up your water by adding a slice of citrus- try a lemon, lime, or orange wedge! It will add extra flavor without all the calories of a glass of juice. You may find yourself drinking more water now that it’s got a little flavor. You can get creative and try different flavors or combinations. Try 1 frozen strawberry with 1 frozen pineapple tidbit. How about cucumber for a refreshing flavor, or add a sprig of mint. Your water certainly won’t be boring anymore!

The above tip is brought to you by the staff at Dr. Shillingford’s office in Boca Raton. Dr. Shillingford specializes in advanced laparoscopic and obesity surgery. Call (561) 483-8800 for a free weight loss consultation.
