If you drink plenty of diet sodas, you may already be aware that the words “diet drinks” and “weight loss” really shouldn’t be used in the same sentence. Mensjournal have done enough research to know that diet sodas can actually stimulate weight gain rather than weight loss.

So, with that in mind, keep reading this short article to find out how to get around all of that. If you take my advice, you’ll save yourself thousands of empty calories per month and peal off plenty of weight over the course of a year.

Healthy Diet Drinks

For most people, the thought of drinking plain old water is enough to bore them to tears. I’m not that crazy about it either. I like drinks that taste sweet. But sugar and chemical sugar substitutes are not good for your health or waistline.

So, the solution I found is Stevia. It tastes sweeter than sugar and is a NATURAL substitute.

This is how I use it.

I add 2 packets of Stevia for about every 16 ounces of water that I drink. When I add it to my water bottle, I just empty the packets in the bottle and shake the whole thing up. When I add it to a glass of water, I stir it up.

I think anybody can follow those directions.

Stevia is how I cured myself of drinking the endless amount of Coke and Mountain Dew. The sweetness of Stevia has made me finally forget about those sugary and unhealthy drinks. I was able to kick Coke and Mountain Dew to the curb within 3 days of trying Stevia for the first time.

Protein Shakes

Even though these drinks don’t say so on their labels, they are fantastic diet drinks. They do a fairly good job of filling you up and are packed with protein.

The protein feeds the muscles in your body, and that leads to many calories getting burned because muscles burn way more calories than fat – up to 8 times more.

If you are really serious about losing weight, you need to add protein shakes to your diet.
