What you drink during the day can have almost as much an effect on your weight as what you eat. If you drink two or three cans of Coke a day you are going to gain weight. Its simple. So what should you be drinking when trying to lose weight? Here are a few ideas.

1. Green Tea
Green tea is, without a doubt, the best thing a woman can drink when trying to lose weight. It should be a part of everyone’s daily intake and it should be drunk many times per day. As you will see in the post linked to above, green tea can reduce your chances of getting cancer and it can actually help you to burn calories. What a wonderful drink.

2. Water
You knew this was going to be in here! Boring old water. Well, the truth is, we need to learn to love it. Water is the basis of all life on Earth and we need it to stay hydrated, healthy and awake. It is a good idea to drink a tall glass of water every time you have a meal. This will help you flush out a lot of toxins and help keep your appetite suppressed.

3. Milk
Milk is not often thought of as a good drink for weight loss. But, in reality, milk is a very valuable drink for all women. Not only does it contain a lot of calcium, it has a lot of protein which can help you lose weight by adding more lean muscle mass. A glass of milk with breakfast is a great idea for long term health and weight loss.

4. Soda water
A simple carbonated water can be a very nice treat when you are trying to lose weight. Especially in the hotter months, there is nothing better than a glass of chilled soda water with some lemon and lime juice added in. It keeps your hydrated and it is tasty without the sugar. A great weight loss drink


Do not ignore what you drink if you are trying to watch your weight. It can make or break your fat loss progress. If you make your main drink water, green tea or soda water you will be fine. It is time, however, to give up the Cokes and other sugar based drinks.
