Drink No Calories

Reduce Liquid Calories


Updated March 01, 2007

About 22 percent of calories consumed by Americans are from liquids. Switching to water, tea or calorie-free sodas could save hundreds of calories a day. This may be the easiest way to lose weight if you are currently getting many of your calories from liquids.

Here's how: Every day switch one drink that has calories with one that doesn't. If you drink 3 sodas a day, make one iced tea on the first day. If you drink orange juice each morning, switch to hot tea or water. Keep making these switches until you are drinking no calories. Try this for one week. You may reduce your daily calories without even changing anything what you eat.
