Shed Pounds With These Three Top Drink Choices
Much of losing weight is about choosing the right foods. But that won't do much good if you're also loading up on high-calorie, sugary drinks. For slimming down, here are three top healthy choices:
- 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.
- 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.
- Wine: That's right - Red wine is 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. After a glass or two, the weight loss benefits diminish.
Metabolic Research Center alsooffers multiple healthy, low-calorie drink mixes. Flavor choices include grape, pomegranate, blue raspberry, green tea cranberry and kiwi melon. Shop online or call 800-501-8090 to find the MRC location nearest you.
