dont drink your calories Tip On How To Lose Weight FastOne of the easiest ways to lose weight, in my opinion, is to not drink your calories, but instead, to eat them! If your goal is to gain weight and add on calories, drinking your calories can be one of the best methods to gain weight effectively. Why is that? The reason is that it takes up to 20 minutes for the stomach to communicate with the brain that it is full! Therefore, you will continue to eat even after you are not hungry. If your goal is to lose weight, drinking your calories is probably one of the main reasons why you are not losing weight. Utilize this tip on how to lose weight fast and shed the unnecessary pounds off!

So you come home from work after a really long day and are exhausted. The first thing you reach for in your fridge is a nice ice cold Coor’s light. The mountains are blue so you know it’s cold, and as you sit down on your couch to relax, you crack open the beer and turn on the “game.” Many people don’t realize, however, the implications of the daily beer. Having just one 12 oz beer a day (153 calories) equates to 16 pounds a year. I am not saying to not have a beer. If you love that beer after work then have that beer, (although I highly recommend eliminating alcoholic calories from your diet ! I am just trying to show the many implications that consuming your calories from beverages may have).

On average, according to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention,  males consume 178 calories per day from sugary liquids while females consume about 102 calories per day. However, this stat is a little skewed because only 50 percent of Americans consume calories from sugary drinks which would mean that the average would be double. 178 calories is still very high and over the course of a full year, would result in about 18 pounds from fat. 102 calories would result in 10 pounds from fat. What many people do not realize is that most of the time, weight is gained gradually and not all at once. These extra calories are one of the main reasons that Americans have become so overweight and as years pass, 102 calories extra can play a huge role in weight. Also to take note for in this statistic is that alcohol and milk do not count as “sugary” drinks.major cause of obesity is from drinking our calories Tip On How To Lose Weight Fast

In an eight-year study of more than 50,000 nurses conducted at Harvard University found that those who upped their intake of fizzy drinks and sugary fruit juices ate 358 extra calories a day, which can be the difference between slim and obese. If you are really serious about losing weight, this tip to help you lose weight quickly can be the difference in you being at a healthy weight or you being at an unhealthy weight.

In a study published in the Journal of Pediatrics, teens consume an average of 300 calories a day from soft drinks, and this is thought to play a huge role increasing rates of childhood obesity.

In a very interesting study conducted at Purdue University and published in the International Journal of Obesity, 15 subjects (7 male and 8 female) were given an extra 450 calories in the form of soda (liquid) for 4 weeks and then an extra 450 calories in the form of jelly beans (solid). When the subjects consuming the extra calories from jelly beans, they tended to eat less throughout the day to compensate for the extra calories. However, when they consumed the calories from the soda, it did not affect their “normal” diet as they continued to eat the same amount of calories as if they had not consumed the soda. The study really showed the effects of consuming liquid calories as opposed to solid calories.

I think a perfect example that may be easier to relate to as a consumer is oranges versus orange juice. A 12 ounce glass of orange juice has about 160 calories while an orange has about 45 calories. When I drink orange juice, I can easily drink 2-3 glasses no problem before being satisfied. However, it would probably only take me about 2 oranges to be similarly satisfied. The difference in calories is substantial. As far as weight loss is concerned, consuming solid foods is a much better choice than liquids. From around 480 calories (from orange juice) to 90 calories (from oranges) can be the difference in your weight loss goals.

A key reason is that amount of time involved in consumption. Drinking a glass of orange juice takes about 10 seconds while eating orange will probably take a couple minutes. It is a lot more convenient and consumption is a lot easier when consuming liquids. Another big reason for the difference in satiety is fiber. Fiber is found in fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and beans and plays a big role in “fullness.” Juices have no fiber and as a result, are a lot less filling.

So you have decided to cut out soda and juice from your diet, but what about diet soda. It has zero calories! There is much debate on this topic and neither one is correct, but I am a huge advocate against artificial sweeteners and I find them to be a terrible alternative. Check out the article on splenda, which is one of the major artifical sweeteners used in sugar-free products. In addition to many of the negative health effects of splenda, splenda has also been linked to excessive eating in many different studies and I advise you to avoid sugar-free products.

So what about milk? Milk is a better option than soda and fruit juices, in my opinion (unless the juice is freshly squeezed yourself and not pasteurized), but milk also has calories. I personally don’t consume milk often, if at all, in my diet and I would advise you to not consume it either. Milk has a relatively large amount of calories and will make it more difficult for you to lose weight. It is also unnatural, in my opinion, and with all the added hormones and antibiotics given to the sick cows on these farms, milk is a beverage that is not at all as great as advertised, but that is for the another time. Check out the article titled Milk: Is It Really Healthy?

So if fruit juices, sodas, and alcoholic beverages (wine, beer, vodka, etc) are all not recommended, then what is left?! Well that’s simple: water!! Drink water as your main source of liquid. The benefits of water are numerous and best of all, it has zero calories. Eliminating liquid calories from your diet can be the most effective way for you to lose weight and get in the best shape of your life!

In simple, try not to drink your calories! Utilize this health tip on how to lose weight fast to help you reach your goals!
