3. Rooibos tea – black and unsweetened
Rooibos is wonderful because it’s healthy, virtually calorie-free and caffeine-free too. This makes it a good hot drink for cold evenings as many people struggle to sleep if they ingest caffeine too late in the day.
4. Green tea, Ceylon tea and other herbal teas
Again, black and unsweetened, teas are healthy and almost calorie-free.
They all have different health benefits, so drinking a wide variety of them is good for you, and it keeps the taste of the teas fresh. If you find one that really needs to be sweetened, a drop of raw honey is a good option. Be careful to note which ones are caffeine-free and which are not so as to avoid sleepless nights.
5. Red wine and whisky
Although alcohol is not a good thing to put into your body for weight loss for numerous reasons, reality dictates that most people are going to have a drink from time-to-time.
The best choices of alcoholic beverage are a glass of red wine (dry) or a whisky. These are lowest in calories and sugar content. Red wine also contains some nutrients. However, using this as a justification for drinking any alcohol is a tad far-fetched, so I won’t get into that here.
The key when drinking alcohol on a diet is not to drink too much. One or two is enough.
