Do you know how many calories you’re drinking every day? One large 32oz cola packs in over 350 calories. There could be even more in your morning coffee beverage. These “calorie bombs” can quickly blow up any weight loss or health goals you might have. The solution is to swap out your beverage of choice for a healthy weight loss drink.
So you know you need to cut out your high-calorie daily beverage (or three). You also know… it’s not that simple. You still need the energy boost that the soda/energy drink/blended coffee gives you just to get through the day.
If giving up sodas, lattes and energy drinks was easy, you would’ve done it already. Maybe you even tried — but after a few days, it was “business as usual.”
On the other hand, if you don’t eliminate beverage calories, you CAN’T get your ideal shape.
Take it from Natasha, IdealShape’s HR Director. At the beginning of 2013, when she decided to lose weight, she started doing the math on her Dr. Pepper calorie consumption and it was in the thousands… A DAY.
“People don’t realize how many calories are in a 44 ounce cup,” Tash says. “When I found out I was drinking over 3,000 calories in soda every day I was disgusted.”
How Many Calories are in Your Daily Drinks?
Sugary drinks are the biggest silent source of fat gain for so many people. Seriously, look at this for a moment:
- Monster Energy Drink = 200 calories
- Bottle of Cran-Apple Raspberry Juice = 230 calories
- Bottle of Coca-Cola = 240 calories
- Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte = 380 calories
Sip two of these drinks every day and you’re consuming 500 extra calories. That’s 3,500 calories consumed a week, or one pound gained every single week.
Or in Tash’s case, she was shocked to find that it was one pound gained every single day.
The Solution: Trade Up to IdealBoost Weight Loss Drink
The key to cutting back on those high calorie drinks is finding a good replacement — something you’ll actually enjoy. That’s why we created our IdealBoost weight loss drink. It’s only 5 calories, sugar-free, and contains Slendesta, the same powerful hunger-blocker that’s in our shakes. Caffeine, natural green tea extract, and B-vitamins give you energy and accelerate the fat burning process.
On top of getting the benefits of the IdealBoost, you’ll also be drinking more water! Drinking enough water throughout the day (at least 10 glasses) is one of our trainers’ best wellness and weight loss tips. It might take a few days to get used to, but that extra hydration in your system will definitely help jump-start your weight loss goals. IdealBoost makes drinking your water easy because it tastes so good, and gives you the energy you need without calorie bombing your willpower.
Tash lost 80 pounds through 2014 (woo hoo!) and a big part of that was cutting soda, first replacing it with water and then IdealBoost. She has managed to keep the weight from creeping back on thanks to her new healthy lifestyle, and the three fresh flavors of IdealBoost: Raspberry Citrus, Pineapple Strawberry, and Tropical Punch!
Just think: by simply replacing that daily calorie bomb with an IdealBoost weight loss drink, you could effortlessly drop a pound a week AND enjoy a delicious guilt-free flavor boost anytime you want.
