Extra Calories from Soda
Don't forget the calories in sugared beverages. One 12-ounce soda contains about 150 calories. Drinking three cans of regular soda each day, without eating less food or doing more exercise, can add up to about a 1-pound weight gain each week.
If you regularly drink sugared beverages, try cutting back. Start by switching part or all of your consumption to sugar-free drinks. Consider making your own flavored
beverage by simply squeezing fresh lemon juice into your water.
