- Water is your best bet. Not only is it the most refreshing of all the beverages you can drink, it’s just plain great for the body in every case. Drink from either the tap or the bottle, it’s available nearly everywhere!
- Milk does your body good. Instead of having a high-sugar, energy drink, try some milk. You get magnesium, calcium, potassium and vitamin D in a glass, which makes it a good choice. Try to stay healthy by avoiding saturated fats in 2% or whole milk. Opt for 1% or skim milk in its place.
- Juice up your body. Avoid caffeinated drinks and make your way to the glass of 100% fruit juice. Many of the vitamins and minerals in 100% fruit juice can’t be found anywhere in your everyday caffeinated beverages. Careful though, due to the natural sugars, a serving of juice is only 4 ounces.
- Make time for your tea time. Because of the increased antioxidants contained in tea, it can help your body ward off certain diseases. Watch out for teas that come in bottles and cans; the added sugars and flavors can make the calorie count skyrocket.
- Sports drinks, only for the sports-inclined. Keep in mind that sports drinks are ideal for exercise sessions or activities that last more than 90 minutes. They replace a lot of electrolytes and sugars that are lost in physical activity, but are much less helpful for you when no activity is taking place.
- Watch out for the happy hour. Alcoholic beverages are often loaded with sneaky amounts calories. A serving of beer is 12 ounces, wine is 3.5 ounces, and liquor is 1.5 ounces. Keep that in mind when you’re counting up calories at the bar.
