Tip #4 - Beware of Liquid Calories
Just because you don't chew it, doesn't mean that it's calorie-free! An easy way to avoid consuming extra calories is to be aware of the fluids you drink. Most people do not need that extra "protein" drink, as our diets are usually adequate. Most of the time you should drink water, unsweetened tea or coffee, 100 percent fruit juice or milk. Special beverages, like apple cider, eggnog and champagne (or any alcohol for that matter), can pack on pounds.
