With all the different diets and foods that claim to help you lose weight, how do you really know if you are getting enough nutrition? Nutrition and weight loss are a tricky combination, you have to make sure that what you take in will give your body the right vitamins and minerals it needs while not giving it calories and such. Drinks are of the same dilemma. Our bodies need liquid to survive and there are certain drinks that one cannot take in when trying to lose weight. There are on the other hand, good drinks – healthy and naturally helps our bodies lose weight. Which drinks are these? Read on to find out.
1. Vegetable Juice. Not as popular as fruit juice, vegetable juice actually has the same nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that fruit juice offers – minus the added sugars and calories. So basically, you get everything good that a fruit juice gives without giving your body the bad stuff. Vegetable juice is definitely a nutrition and weight loss drink in one.
Making your own vegetable juice would ensure the health benefits in your drink and also ensure that no added sugars are mixed in the drink. If you prefer store-bought vegetable juice though, pick varieties that have reduced sodium.
2. Black Coffee. Coffee is well known for its caffeine effect which helps us stay awake. Coffee has so much more benefits than just that though. For one, coffee has been proven to be good in weight loss. If drank black and in moderation, black coffee can help burn calories. According to nutritionist Anna Yuschak, “If (coffee) is consumed on an empty stomach first thing in the morning before a workout, it can boost endurance and prolong fatigue, which aids in fat loss.” Coffee, being a diuretic, also improves digestion and helps us eliminate. Aside from these, black coffee offers other extra benefits such as – having great amounts of antioxidants that help reduce the risk of cancer; so long as you don’t put in a truck load of sugar into your coffee, it has a good amount of anti bacterial and anti adhesive qualities that prevent cavities; and as studies have shown, drinking coffee decreases a person’s chances of developing Parkinson’s disease by as much as 80%.
3. Good Old Natural Water. Water is good for numerous bodily functions such as digestion, respiration, and circulation. What is important to take note of though, is that it is great for weight loss as it is calorie free! Aside from it having zero calories, water helps us feel full and boosts our metabolism. Drinking at least eight 8oz glasses of water will surely be beneficial for everyone.
Who would have thought that nutrition and weight loss could easily be achieved through drinking natural and healthy drinks? Contrary to popular belief – drinking is good for your health! (So long as it involves vegetable juice, black coffee, and water – no alcohol please!)[ad_2]
