You know this already, but losing weight is no easy task. Eating plenty of fruits and veggies and fitting daily exercise into your busy schedule takes time and discipline. If you’re already doing this, then you’re well on your way to achieving optimal health. Though there’s one aspect you might not be considering — and that’s what you’re drinking.
Watch out for these beverages that are sure to make you gain weight like crazy.
1. Whole milk
Milk’s important for strong bones and teeth, right? Here’s the truth — if your goal is to lose weight, it’s time to leave this cow product in the dust and get your calcium from other sources. Whole milk contains 8 grams of complete protein per cup, Livestrong.com adds, so you might be tempted to indulge. But you’ll also be getting over 200 calories and plenty of saturated fat, which will certainly add to your waistline.
