Skip the diet soft drinks. They typically contain artificial sweeteners that might not be good for your waistline. While these faux sugars contain very few calories, if they contain any at all. The dirt soft drinks just might make people crave more of the sweet stuff later on, leading to poor food choices.
Instead of picking a drink that you hope won't lead to weight gain, choose one that might actually help you lose weight, such as green tea.
People who drank four cups of this brew each day for eight weeks lowered their BMI levels and lost an average of about 2 lb. People who drank two servings of a green tea brew for three months lost weight around their waistlines.
Just make sure you stick to the homemade brew. It typically contains more heart-healthy amounts of antioxidants than the bottled varieties.
