Beware Of Beverages – They Are Not Necessarily Juices

Introduction And Background
When you go to eat or if you go to a gathering, usually the first thing you are offered are beverages. And that is the one thing that you do not at all consider when you are counting your calories or are calculating on how much to eat. We often forget that though beverages may be liquid, they can be filled with calories as well. And what’s more, we often give the excuse that they are juices and could be very healthy. But there is so much more that you are missing out on. Read the article to further acquaint yourself how wary you should be of beverages and how they could actually ruin your diet unknowingly, that is if you are following one. And how they could be the reason behind your weight gain in the first place!

They Have Carbs
Unless you are drinking pure lemon water or something like green tea, be assured that your beverage does have sugar. Whether you are having a glass of juice, whether or you are drinking some sort of cool-aid or your host has made this delicious new punch, you have to acknowledge that somewhere in it there is sugar present. And this kind of sugar you have to be aware of because if you are a calorie counter, you usually forget to include the calories of the drink you have had.

Avoid Sodas
No matter what people say or how they can justify drinking sodas, beware of them and avoid them if you can. Sodas not only are bad for your health but did you know they almost have the same number of calories as the meal you are having? There are many people who are accustomed to having sodas with every meal and it becomes a family deal but this is one dangerous tradition and parents should never indulge their kinds in this. The amount of sugar present in sodas as well as the carbonated water and food coloring make it one of the worst drinks to have daily. If you want a soda, have it once in a while, perhaps once a month or once in two weeks. But even having it every other day is somewhat of a crime to your diet, your weight as well as your health!

Juices Are Not All That Healthy
Unless you are drinking a juice which you have made yourself with fresh fruits in the blender, juices are not that healthy if you are drinking them out of the carton. They contain preservatives and added sugar which will raise your caloric count anyway. And they also contain elements which can trigger the brain into making you feel hungrier; a recent research study has shown. Drink the healthy and fresh juices if need be but if your beverage is an entire carton of juice which is not exactly fresh and has a lot of added sugar, coloring and preservatives to it, it is not the best option for you.

The Best Beverage To Have
The best beverage that you can have is water. It is the most refreshing drink out of all and it is one that will always be beneficial for you, no matter what. If you drink water before every meal, not only will you be filling your stomach and making less space for water but you will also be aiding your digestive system as well by doing so. It also decreases appetite gradually as you begin to eat less. Water is a refreshing stimulant and you should take full benefits from it. It is right there in your house!

Minty Beverages
They are also something you should be careful with because minty beverages not only contain mint but have sugar as well as sodas mixed up in them sometimes. You think you are having a healthy drink but in reality you really are not. They have many calories in them too and if you want the benefit of mint, have mint leaves rather than a mint beverage unless it contains that and water and perhaps a bit of lemon. But other than that, try to stick to better beverages if you are fond of them. There is green juice which is terrific and made from vegetables only, there is pure orange juice made at home as well as milkshakes without sugar.

Conclusion
The conclusion that you must have come to after reading this article is that you should be careful of what you drink as well, not only what you eat. Usually we only end up focusing on what we are stuffing our mouths with, not what we are gulping down.  It will help you better in your diet and weight loss regime and to keep an overall check on your weight as well.
