Men’s Health talks about the 6 drinks that are forbidden when you’re trying to lose weight. Just kidding- forbidden is a strong word – maybe just try to consume less of these liquids. This is to help you out, not just in identifying the worst drinks in the world but also to help you manage your weight. As much as possible, cross these out of your grocery shopping list.
The top on the list: milkshakes, margaritas, and Cokes. These aren’t the only ones that you should watch out for. Even drinks that are part of your daily routine: these may seem safe and harmless at first but they carry enough calories that will set you up for failure.
Karen Ansel, R.D.N., author of Healing Superfoods for Anti-Aging: Stay Younger, Live Longer, says that you may be unaware that most of the liquids you consume in a day have lots of calories. These can pile up and you end up wondering what’s causing your weight troubles.

Even some seemingly-innocent drinks can set you back. Read more…
Women’s Health Mag discusses these drinks that should be restricted when you’re on a weight loss regimen. First up: coffee. Don’t panic, people. It’s not like we’re totally going to zero out coffee. We just want you to ditch the flavoured frap, mochas, and lattes as these aren’t going to make it easier for you. Instead, you can order black coffee, straight up. Add some whole milk and you’re good to go. You can add just one pack of sugar but keep in mind, the calories will accumulate if you drink coffee at least three times a day.
The next drink: skim milk. Observational research shows that those who consumed fat-free even gain more weight over time. Moreover, milk substitutes with added sugars should be avoided as well. If you really can’t take in dairy, check out unflavoured and unsweetened nut milk. One cup of almond milk only has 40 calories and less than a gram of sugar.
If you really want to shed some pounds, you’ve got to make sure to stick while 2 percent or whole milk. These are awesome sources of calcium and these allow you to burn fat more.
6 Drinks You Should Never Sip if You’re Trying to Lose Weight

Web MD recommends monitoring what you drink. If you’re someone who is really conscious of their weight, “liquid calories” can be scary. On the other hand, you may not even know about it. The point is, people need to start being aware of the hidden calories in liquid form.
We’re all guilty of the occasional Starbucks coffee. But what really matters is the amount of calories consumed on a daily basis – this really counts especially when we get older. And when it comes to drinks, we often neglect the importance of liquid calories.
Imagine this: a Caffe Mocha is equivalent to 300 calories. This is with whole milk and no whipped cream. If you add whipped cream on top, that’s a total of 400 calories. A White Chocolate Mocha totals 410 calories (whole milk and no whip), and it’s 510 if it’s with whipped cream.
