Dieting is pretty darn hard, no matter which way you slice it (no pun intended). There are many reasons for this and it certainly depends on the person. But it can be especially hard for those who feel like they’re actually putting in the work to eat healthy and still aren’t seeing results. If you’re eating right, there might be a culprit lurking behind the scenes. It’s not about what you’re eating—it’s what you’re drinking.
Hiding in Plain Sight
The truth is that many people put so much emphasis on cutting sugar and fat out of their food that they forget about the excessive amount of sugar they’re getting from their drinks. Sometimes, there are even drinks that we think are healthy but are actually not.
Such as Fruit Juices
Fruit juices like orange or apple juice is a great example of something that seems healthy but isn’t always. There are many fruit juice brands that load up their product with sugar, to the point where you’re loading up with it, and as a result, your sugar levels are much higher than you thought.
Tea and Coffee
On their own, tea and coffee are just fine. But if you’re adding a few spoonfuls of sugar, or a few drops of creamer, every time you have a cup, it’s definitely affecting your dieting goals.
