10 Delicious Ways to Drink Yourself Skinny
Drinking can actually be a rewarding aspect of the weight loss process if you just drink the right way
Today on The Daily Meal
You’ve probably already heard the age-old notion that drinking water will help you lose weight, and while that’s on our list of ways to drink yourself skinny, there are also plenty of other ways to fill yourself up with liquids without sticking to boring old water. Drinking yourself skinny doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re drinking low-calorie alcoholic drinks (although that’s always fun); rather, it means drinking beverages that will help to fill you up so that you don’t feel deprived during the dog days of a diet.
If we’re being honest, it should probably be mentioned that drinking any kind of alcohol at all isn’t going to be good for your weight loss goal. Consider the college drinking theory — you don’t gain your entire "Freshman 15" because of greasy dorm food. You pack on a few of those extra pounds because you’re staying up later and drinking more beer than you did when you were in high school (hopefully). However, if you don't want to do away with booze altogether, drinking in moderation and consuming lower-calorie drinks might make a considerable difference on the scale.
Drinking empty calories is never the way to lose weight, but we came up with a few low-cal drinks that are sure to help you shed some pounds if you’re eager to keep drinking, as well as a few other drinks that will help curb those cravings and fill you up to avoid snacking and overeating. Weight loss is never easy, but following the golden rule of eating better and exercising more will be sure to lead you to success every time — but we’ve also added a few drinking shortcuts to help you get there.
