Drinks to Avoid in Order to be Healthy

We drink so many drinks every day and we popularize them because of the effects they have on our body. Drinks like tea, coffee, sodas and colas are some of the most popular drinks that we consume daily. We however are not aware of the damage they cause to out body. We must have a look of some of these popular drinks and how they damage our organs thereby making them drinks to eliminate from our diets.

Diet sodas are a popular drink with dieters. What they are not aware of is the amount of artificial sweeteners that are added to these drinks and the effects that they have on our bodies. Amongst other adverse effects that these sweeteners have on our bodies; they are the main cause of migraines and headaches. Instead of drinking diet sodas a better option would be fruit juices or better still water. These help to keep your body hydrated and at the same time they also have positive effects on your health. Water helps to flush out the toxins from your body and juices are loaded with vitamins and minerals that are good for your body.

Coffee is another popular drink. If you are like me, then you are not able to open your eyes without a cup of coffee. This is dependence on caffeine. With the rise in the number of coffee shops it is almost impossible to say no to these drinks with ease. The coffees on the platter here are topped with whipped cream, milk and chocolaty delights that are loaded with calories, not to mention the amount of refined sugar that goes into making them sweet and delightful. If you are a fan of coffee though, you need no give it up completely. Look at black coffee that does not have milk added or drink the kinds with skimmed milk that is lower in calories. Skip the whipped cream and the high calorie toppings.

Alcohol is the most popular drink during the holiday season and they are drinks that you must watch out for. They harm your internal organs and they load you up with empty calories. While wine has therapeutic value, they are also high in calories. Beer is the one drink that you must avoid under all circumstances. It has no nutritional value and it loads you up with calories that help you with fats that accumulate on your stomach causing you to have a beer belly.
