Do not use your calories on drinks. Water is calorie free, add a lemon wedge or some crystal light 0 calorie powder to add some flavor. Pick a flavored light coffee to brew instead of a dark roast. You are less likely to need sugar and/or creamer. Opt for a calorie free sweetener or tea instead.

I try to quench my thirst only with water. You know how they say "Don't drink your calories"? Well I do enjoy some juice or wine on occasion. But I find that, when I'm thirsty, I don't even pause to enjoy these drink calories! So I always have a glass of water FIRST before I indulge in juice/wine
I try to make water my main drink (so important to digestion, absorption of nutrients and overall health). I feel more satisfied if I derive my calories from chewing food rather than drinking pop, fancy coffee drinks or alcohol.194
