Some drinks can affect our health and weight. Don’t take high sugar calories drinks. If you drink more calorie drinks most of us eat very less food. Water and lemon water are the best health drink. Try herbs tea without adding sugar, and also drink coffee with free calorie and black tea.

COCONUT WATER

A single coconut would yield about 35-40 calories. A glass of coconut water would be about half of the (18-20 calories). Coconut water can be used as a health drink

VIRGIN MARY

Tomatoes contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, making them excellent for health.

When you are out with friends for a drink, try Virgin Mary (made from fresh tomatoes), which is a nutrient-dense 40-calorie drink.

GREEN TEA

Green tea is antioxidant-rich and contains a lot less caffeine than coffee. It is relatively gentler on your body and can be flavored with fresh herbs and spices like mint or ginger without adding too many calories.

Want something better? Cool your green tea and have it iced. This way you are having authentic iced tea, garnished with mint leaves and a pretty paper umbrella. It contains not more than 2 or 3 calories, and is great for your health. You could also add 30ml of gin to it, about 70 calories, and make your own version of the long island iced tea.

SPAKLING WATER

Sparkling water is simply spring water, which means its water that’s slightly fizzy. This is equally hydrating, with a few trace minerals, if at all. This makes it a fun alternative to water, with not more than zero calories.

LEMON WATER, SALTED

Lemon water is rich in vitamins C, and if you have it with salt and cumin it contains only 6 calories. You could pot for fresh lime soda. Plain soda has zero calories.

Have it salted, so that your calories count is not throw off-track. Adding a sachet of sugar to it will add at least 25 to 30 calories.

GIN AND TONIC

One small peg 30ml of gin contain about 70 calories. Adding tonic to it shoots up the calorie content by 90.

Here are some better alternatives for mixers. Adding plain lemon juice to a peg would add only 6 calories. Soda contains zero calories, and it works well with gin. However, if taken every day, soda can increase the blood pressure and damage the joints.
