Tired of Water? Check Out These Fat Burning Alternatives

As most of you know, excess sugar is one of the biggest factors that contribute to our body's fat storage. You may also remember, that to lose fat you must always be properly hydrated. At least 100oz a day should suffice. I am a fan of water, no doubt, but I also love to drink things that are sweet. With all the sugary choices out that, here is a couple of the things that I personally like.

SOBE makes a variety of flavored drinks that are great tasting and also very low calories/sugar. Be careful to only get the LEAN series. All the others are just as much sugar as a can of soda. (about 6 teaspoons).

Crystal Light has been around ever since I can remember. The whole company is based on sugar free/low calorie beverages. These are great for making large amounts for a small price. They come in a large variety of flavors and taste great.

Vitamin Water is a newer brand that I like a lot. They are similar to Gatorade but not geared towards athletes. They too come in a couple different styles. The full sugar type and the 10 calorie type. Stick to the low sugar if you need something sweet that will help hydrate you and not spike your blood sugar.

Water is always the best option, but we all need something else sometimes. Just keep making wise choices and you will maintain that lean physique that you always wanted:)
