What’s In Your Cup?

Calories from what you drink can really expand your waistline. A 2007 study found that 21% of the calories consumed by Americans came from beverages. That’s around 460 calories per day!

Recent studies show that simply cutting out calories from beverages can help you lose weight faster and keep it off longer than just cutting food calories.

What this means: Cut calories from the drinks you consume in half and you could lose over 23 pounds of fat per year!
