What you drink does matter | Manvel, Texas Photographer

If you are dieting you have to count the calories and carbs in what you drink just like when you count the calories and carbs in what you eat.
People tend to forget this and this can really slow your weight loss down.

On low carb diets, you need to skip the wine, alcohol, and beer.

My drink of choice is Iced Tea with sweet n low I drink iced tea every day along with water. I have no need to drink anything else.

16 oz of Iced Tea – has no calories
Sweet n Low 5 calories x 1 packets
1 grams of carbs per packet

16 oz of Iced Tea with sugar- 90 calories
22 grams of sugar

Coke 12 oz can – 140 calories – Very High in Sodium and Carbs

Diet Dr. Pepper 12 oz can – 0 calories – Even higher in Sodium
0 carbs
55 mg sodium

 Red Wine – 5 oz – 123 calories – High in Carbs and 2 – 3 glasses really do add up.
4 grams of carbs
1.2 grams of sugar

Premier Chocolate Protein Drink – 11 oz- 160 calories – Great protein source I drink these as a meal replacement when I am in a hurry.
