I've pretty much always been of the opinion that I would far sooner EAT calories than drink them. Much more satisfaction. And at this point it is pretty much water all the way. Some unsweetened almond milk but pretty much water.

Good old fashion water for me... all the other drinks are "empty calories" but that's just my opinion. Thanks for the article, I'm forwarding it to my grown kids..lol emoticon

Thanks for the link! It's been an important part of my new healthy lifestyle to reduce/eliminate most caloric intake from beverages. If I have a smoothie now, it's one I make myself and I know it's going to be a meal instead of a 'drink'. Sodas and cocktails are reduced to a once in a great while treat instead of several times daily.

All the choices are yours - you only have to make them! I'm choosing 'today' over 'someday'!

It's amazing how liquids can be as bad or even worse than foodstuffs.

WOW. I never buy those products because I know they're bad, but I had NO IDEA HOW BAD.

I did have a friend who used to drink Starbuck's bottled frappacino's - one a day. She cut those out and without making any other changes lost 20 pounds over six months. Now I see why!
