3. Supersize Meals Equal Supersize Gains
As tempting as it is to order the supersize-free-refill-no holds barred soda at your favorite fast food joint, it is not a great option healthwise. The calories you drink are the sneakiest calories of all, because they do not satisfy the need for food and only add extra empty calories, and a lot of them. In fact, the spike in insulin brought on by these monsters can cause even more hunger. Large specialty coffees are no better. A grande mocha can be as high as 400 calories. A monster sized energy drink, 280 calories. The oversized 42 ounce soda averages 410 calories. Smoothies and shakes can also be very high in calories. One popular ice cream shop has a large shake with over 2000 calories, in ONE shake. If you want to cut calories you drink is a great place to start. Water, no matter the size is always 0 calories.
