You Are What You Drink

waterIt has become apparent to me that many people do not realize how many calories and sugar they are drinking.

Any beverage that isn’t water has something in it.  The question is, does that thing have calories, or have properties that are going to make it difficult to lose fat?
I’m not going to throw stones about diet soda.  I like diet soda.  I drink diet soda.  If you don’t like it, I don’t care.
However I’m sure I’d lean out faster without it.

What You Drink Counts

Let’s not digress though, most of you are drinking ridiculously caloric beverages that are making you fat.  Changing what you drink just may be the simple weight loss fix you’ve been looking for.

Here’s common beverages people are drinking with calories (that most of you don’t realize are there):

  • Coffee with cream and sugar or syrups from Starbucks or coffee house
  • any form of alcohol, including straight liquor (more articles on this in this blog)
  • Soda (regular)
  • Juice  – fruit juice is all sugar. Vegetable juice usually has fruit juice, plus tons of salt (V8)
  • Snapple – sugar
  • Gatorade – sugar
  • Vitamin Water – sugar water.
  • Red Bull – red sugar.  Sugar free red bull is ok!
  • other energy drinks – caffeine and sugar.

Make some easy changes to the way you live for massive changes down the road.

The Top 7 Reasons to Exercise

Reason #1: To Lose Fat

I don’t need to tell you that our society is not pro-fat.  Being lean makes you feel good about your appearance. Unless you’re crazy.  Then you’ll find another problem.

Reason #2: To Reduce Pain

Old jocks like me know that skipping workouts just makes injuries hurt more.  Training keeps our muscle / joint balance in line.

Reason #3: To Build Muscle

Muscle looks good.  Fat doesn’t.

Reason #4: Anti-Aging

People who train don’t age as quickly as those who don’t.  Have a look around the gym.

Reason #5: To Stay Healthy

It’s like health insurance that keeps you from getting sick, or at least less often.

Reason #6: To Reduce Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

Young people don’t think about this benefit, but if you make good nutrition and regular vigorous exercise your lifestyle, you will likely never develop problems with these 2 things.
