Cut out all sugary drinks from your diet. There are much tastier and more satisfying ways of consuming calories. Drink water all day, all of the time. Sugary drinks don't quench your thirst, they only make you more thirsty, water not only quenches your thirst but also curbs your appetites.

A great way to relax? floating in the hot tub. Don't turn it up all the way, just warm enough to feel like a warm bath, get in to one of the "seat" areas, and lay back, close your eyes, let your feet float and relax. The built in seat keeps you from sinking and drowning, but you can still feel buoyed and "weightless". I find it a great way to totally relax.175
Do not drink alcohol before doing this, ever!
Due to a busy day schedule, I tend to workout late at night. Once I'm done, I want to take in some protein to help my muscles out, but I have to go to sleep soon and don't want to eat a meal right before showering/sleeping. My solution? I drink a cup of milk! Not many calories, not harsh on the stomach, and it has 8g of protein. Drinking it warm helps me relax before going to sleep.
