Healthy Drinking Habits Are Important

It's not uncommon to meet someone who can't understand why they can't lose weight and blames the fact that, despite eating the appropriate foods, their weight hovers around the "a few pounds overweight" threshold. They'll tell you everything and wonder what they're doing wrong, then take a swallow from a can of soda, a glass of beer, or something similar, and acknowledge it's their third drink of the day or night when questioned.

Maintaining a healthy diet while enjoying the occasional glass of wine or can of soda is no longer impossible.
Now, it is far from impossible to maintain a healthy diet while continuing to enjoy the occasional glass of wine or can of soda. Neither is it unthinkable to stop drinking these things entirely, but it is not compulsory. However, it is important to realize that issues with weight gain or weight loss can often be down to what you drink as much as what you eat. You will not be at a healthy weight if you drink a bottle of wine a day, or get through a family-sized bottle of soda.

If you have to have a drink with food, then often a glass of water will be the best option. There are more reasons for this than just the weight issue. A glass of water will keep you from getting thirsty and will help you enjoy the meal, but will not interfere with the taste. And if you are thirsty, a glass of water is the best thing you can drink – it replenishes the body’s hydration levels and allows you to enjoy the occasional glass of wine or soda more, because you get to really savor the taste.

While many people think of green tea as a healthy beverage that hydrates and relaxes the body, it actually does a lot more than that. Green tea is high in polyphenols, It may also help to decrease rapid increases in blood sugar after a meal. Lemon water has a surprising amount of immune-boosting power. 14mg vitamin C is added to a glass of water by stirring 2 tablespoons lemon juice into it. Another perk? Lemon water tastes better, so you'll probably drink more of it than plain water—another approach to remain hydrated.
