Sip Your Way to Weight Loss with the Right Drink Choices
Choosing the right foods can help you shed pounds. But choosing the wrong drinks, like sugary sodas, can quickly undermine that effort. Slim down by sipping on these instead:
- Low-fat milk: Cut the fat, but keep the filling protein. Plus, research shows that calcium also may aid in weight loss. In one study, women burned more fat and calories when they had 1,000 to 1,400 milligrams of calcium per day.
- Green tea: It hydrates and helps to keep you feeling full. Plus, it's loaded with antioxidants, which boosts your body's fat-burning and calorie-burning rates. In one study, researchers found that five cups of green tea a day helped participants lose twice as much weight as those who didn't consume it.
- Red wine: It's packed with resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant that helps to stop fat storage. Research shows that moderate wine drinkers have narrower waists and less belly fat than do those who favor heavier libations like liquor. Sipping that glass of merlot can help boost your calorie burn for a good 90 minutes. Just keep in mind that moderation is the key here. A glass too many will nix the benefits.
