There are a lot of people out there that drink their calories, but just do not realize it. This includes fruit juices, wine, beer, milk shakes and other types of beverages, shakes or foods that can be sipped through a straw, bottle, etc. So how do you overcome this? The first thing that one needs to be aware of is what they are drinking while they are eating. It is very easy to drink as many calories that are in a typical dinner.
The one tip you can use is that if you know you are going to be having a few glasses of wine on a Friday or Saturday night, do you best to eat extremely well throughout the week, so you know that if you have two glasses of wine, you are not going to be feel guilty.
Another great way to make sure that you are drinking the right types of fluids is to keep your exercise consistent. Meaning, you will need to stay hydrated throughout the day to support the body during and when recovering. If you need more advice on hydration or ideas of when and how much water to intake, ask your Portland personal trainer.
