If you’re like most people and on a losing weight diet plan, one thing you think is a great option is diet soda. If you have a sweet tooth, this may seem like the perfect solution. It is sweet, it does not contain any calories, it’s carbonated and it will will really quench your thirst.
Despite the fact that diet soda is completely devoid of calories, it contains many unnatural ingredients that are not so healthy for you. We advise avoiding it if possible.
If you want to see best results from your health and weight loss program you need to try other options that have produced results for people. So all of this said, what can you turn to instead of diet drinks?
Here are some options;
Home-Made Lemonade and Tea
The first option to replace diet drinks with is home-made lemonade. This option is great because it’s calorie free and if you make it with Green tea, it can actually give you a slight boost to your metabolism as well.
To prepare home-made lemonade, brew up a batch of your favorite tea and then place it over ice in the fridge. Wait a few hours for it to cool and then serve it with a few slices of lemon as desired. Don’t add sugar or too much sugar if you can to avoid the calories.
Water With Lemon
The next option that you can try to if you don’t like lemonade or tea is water with lemon only. Lemon adds an instant slash of flavor to your water and will make it easier to put down.
If you want to see optimal weight loss on your plan, you should be aiming to drink ten to twelve glasses of water per day, so this can definitely help you achieve that.
Toss a lemon in the water and allow to sit for 30 minutes or an hour to let the flavor come out, then gulp it down.
The next quick beverage option that you can use instead of diet sodas is seltzer water. If it’s the carbonation that you crave, seltzer water is what will solve this craving in a hurry.
It’s also completely calorie free and will offer a refreshing taste as you go about your day. Just be sure that you are purchasing a variety that doesn’t contain sugar, as that would add unwanted calories.
CBD With Any Drink
Finally, consider adding CBD to your drink options. We have seen and heard a few stories from individuals who take a drop of CBD or a Capsule before and after any drink they have. Hemp derived CBD broad spectrum products have been shown to increase bowl movements and help soften stool. This is a nice option for you on a weight loss diet plan.
