Fruit juice may be advertised as healthy, but the number of calories are as much as beer. Next time you crave fruit juice, go for the whole fruit that is unprocessed with all the minerals and vitamins still intact. (You know fruit juice is not what it appears when manufacturers have to inject extra vitamins into the juices to make it more appealing.)
Replace fruit juice with water and whole fruits, then you are well on your way of losing weight.
Just put down the juice if you ever want to succeed at losing weight or attain success at dieting. Watch this YouTube video to better understand why bottled fruit juice is not a health food.
Alcohol is simply bad for your diet plans and goals. When you are doing everything to lose weight, make sure to avoid alcohol consumption as well.
These are the things that alcohol does to your body:
- Forces carbohydrates and dietary fats into permanent fat storage in the body.
- Eliminates important minerals vital to your health.
- Adds empty calories.
- Increase stomach acid, and damage stomach lining.
- Lowers inhibitions and discipline to avoid bad foods.
The next time you look in a mirror and see a double chin staring back at you, then it is time to start lowering your alcohol consumption.
Weight loss is hard without lifestyle changes. If your mind is only centered around what you eat and activities, you will become miserable. Inspiration will come from many sources and none are more successful than true stories from individuals who have looked obesity in the eyes and changed themselves.
