#8- Avoid Diet drinks
Food and drink manufacturers have a lot to answer for when it comes to misleading the public. Yes, diet drinks may indeed contain less sugar than their sugary cousins but are they actually effective in achieving effective weight loss? No. It just so happens that the artificial sweeteners used in place of actual sugar act as signals telling the body to store fat and carbohydrate, making you hungrier and more likely to eat. Not to mention the fact that the sweet tasting drinks promote insulin release which reduces fat burning. Clearly, diet drinks are not the solution. Drink what your body was designed to drink: good old-fashioned water.
