Quench your thirst without extra calories
(HealthDay News) -- It's important to drink a lot of fluids during the hot summer months. But too many sugary drinks can widen your waistline.
These beverages avoid the empty calories:
- Enjoy sparkling water or ice cold tap water with a few slices of lemon, lime or cucumber for added flavor.
- Before you drink coconut water, read the label to make sure it's not high in sodium.
- Pour fat-free or low-fat milk over ice.
- Create your own thirst quencher by combining different kinds of 100-percent fruit juice and adding fresh fruit.
