Three Top Weight Loss Drinks
When working to lose weight, the focus often is on food. But what you drink can do much to help or hinder your efforts. Here are three of the best when you're looking to shed pounds:
Low-fat milk: You'll 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. And, it's packed with antioxidants, which boosts your 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 and whittle their waistlines.
Wine: Oh, yes - wine. It's packed with resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant that helps to stop fat storage. Studies show that moderate wine drinkers have narrower waists and less belly fat than do those who favor liquor. Sipping that glass of merlot can help boost your calorie burn for a good 90 minutes. But of course, the key is moderation.
