As far as beverages go, water and tea are always the best option. "Diet" sodas can be just as bad as their regular counterparts, because of the aspartame content. Any carbonated beverage can make you retain water, thus making it hard to lose weight. Alcohol should also be used in moderation. The best choices are a light beer or a glass of red wine. Try to avoid mixed drinks, as they are loaded with sugar and calories.

Remember if you slip up, as any normal human being does, don't beat yourself up and think that you ruined your diet for the day. Everyone can have a slip up or a treat once in a while! Just get back on track to your goals and you will keep the weight off for good!
