This is the week. Christmas is just a few days away and the celebrations have begun.
This season is filled with joy, fun and happiness for many people. For others, it is a source of weight gain and health issues. Of course, it need not be with some simple adjustments. Here are 3 relating to what you drink:
- Christmas cocktails. Be it egg nog anything or Santa Cinnamon drink, sugary drinks pack a double dose of calories due to alcohol and sugar. Some go as high as 900 calories in one single drink.
- Red Bull and other “Energy Drinks.” These drinks are also loaded with sugar plus the added bonus of a ton of caffeine. They will deplete the adrenals quicker than virtually anything, causing addition stress and strain on the heart.
- Soda. It is the #2 cause of obesity among youth. (Lack of exercise is #1.) It is again, loaded with ridiculous amounts of sugar and creates many problems for dental hygiene.
