Fat Habit 9: Drinking Calories—Not Eating Them

Slim Solution: People are drinking a larger proportion of their calories than ever, and because liquids are less filling than eating real food, it may lead to overconsumption of calories. Sugary beverages—including sodas, fruit drinks, and flavored waters—are also linked to increased risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers because they cause a rapid spike in blood sugar and insulin levels that are metabolically damaging. Avoid sugary beverages and alcohol as much as possible and limit dairy beverages and fruit-based beverages to no more than 150 calories per day.
