Fat Habit 9: Drinking calories—not eating them
Slim Solution: People are drinking a larger proportion of their calories than ever, and because liquids are less filling than eating real
food, it may lead to overconsumption of calories. Sugary beverages—including sodas, fruit drinks, and flavored waters—are
also linked to increased risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers because they cause a rapid spike in
blood sugar and insulin levels that are metabolically damaging. Avoid sugary beverages and alcohol as much as possible and
limit dairy beverages and fruit-based beverages to no more than 150 calories per day.
