5. Cut out sugary drinks to help lose weight without exercise
Research has proven that sugary drinks increase the risk of obesity, as well as heart disease, diabetes, and gout. A typical 20-ounce soda contains 240 calories or more. These calories do not give a feeling of fullness, so you will not eat any less. Replacing sugary drinks with non-sugary drinks can result in an average weight loss of 2% to 2.5%.
Beware of artificially sweetened drinks, artificial sweeteners can increase appetite.
What can you do? Replace sugary drinks with infused water. If you choose to drink 100% fruit juice, dilute with 75% water to reduce calorie intake.
