Top 10 Healthy Drinks That Can Help You Lose Weight

healhty drinks
When it comes to weight loss, substituting healthy drinks for those sugary sodas and energy drinks can have a drastic effect on your weight loss goals. Most people don’t realize how many calories they take in each day from drinks alone. For instance, a caffe mocha with all the fixings can pack in over 500 calories! So as you can see, switching to healthier drinks and ditching the “junk drinks” will greatly reduce your daily caloric intake and in return start shredding those unwanted pounds. Check out this list of the top 10 healthy drinks that can help you reach your weight loss goals…

  1. Vegetable Juice

    Vegetable juice for weight loss
    Vegetable juice is every bit as nutritious as fruit juice but with about half the calories. Most vegetable juices are also rich in fiber which can help make you feel full and in turn eat less.

  2. Fruit Smoothies

    fruit smoothies and losing weight
    Mix-up a delicious batch of smoothies using your favorite fruits and a little bit of skim milk. Do not consume smoothies with added sugar, whipped cream, honey, or other sweeteners that can add hundreds of calories – in other words, don’t eat smoothies from your favorite local restaurant or ice-cream shop and think that you’re eating healthy because you’re not!

  3. Fruit Juice

    fruit juice
    Fruit juices have loads of vitamins and nutrients, but it’s important to make sure that there’s no added sugar…sorry Sunny D and Tang! Also remember that the pulpier, the better. Fruit juice with lots of pulp contains added fiber that can help you feel more full and eat less.

  4. Black Coffee

    Health benefits of black coffee
    Coffee has plenty of positive health benefits and best of all, it contains no calories! Black coffee is rich in antioxidants that can help boost your mood, improve concentration, reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer, as well as many other benefits. Keep you coffee consumption at 4 cups or less per day – as with anything, moderation is the key.

  5. Green Tea

    Benefits of green tea antioxidants
    Like coffee, green tea has a plethora of positive health benefits and contains plenty of helpful antioxidants. It also helps to boost your metabolism if consumed on a daily basis, which can help to speed up your body’s fat-burning mechanism – as much as a 40% increase in some cases!

  6. Milk

    Milk for weight loss
    The calcium in Low-fat or skim milk can help contribute to the breakdown of fat cells in your body. Too much milk, though, can pack on the pounds because it does contain a lot of calories, so stick to 3-4 small servings per day in order to benefit from milk’s weight loss benefits.

  7. Protein Drinks

    protein powder drinks weight loss
    Protein drinks, such as from powders or pre-mixed varieties, can have a great effect on your weight loss regiment, because lean muscle is very efficient at burning fat. In other words, the more muscle you have, the more fat your body will burn. Protein is a big part of this equation, because it’s the building block of muscle growth.

  8. Fiber Drinks

    fiber rich drinks to help lose weight
    There’s many fiber-rich drinks on the market today, and they can be a great tool for any weight loss program. Fiber helps to make your body feel full, and it also has plenty of other positive health benefits as well.

  9. Apple Cider Vinegar

    apple cider vinegar weight loss
    Sounds a little gross, and it may be too gross for some people to try, but apple cider vinegar is a sort-of “old school” health drink that was very popular in the ’70s as a weight loss tool. Although there aren’t any scientific studies that actually prove it works, many fitness gurus swear by it, saying that it greatly boosts your metabolism if taken regularly…Hey, it’s worth a try! Here’s a recipe to make your own apple cider vinegar.

  10. Ice Water

    drink ice water to lose weight
    Probably the most powerful weight loss tool at your disposal, and also the cheapest, is plain old ice water (who’d a thunk!). Drinking plenty of water is great for your body because it helps you feel full, boosts your metabolism, and it contains zero calories. Furthermore, some studies suggest that drinking just two extra glasses of ice water per day can help boost your metabolism by as much as 30%. This equates to about 5 pounds of fat loss per year!

Following this list of healthy drinks can, without a doubt, help shape your diet. But look deeper into a medical career, like working on a bachelor of science in nursing, and discover more ways to improve your overall health and well-being

    I don’t know who told you that coffee was good for you. In all my years of drinking coffee I have never felt that I was doing myself a favour, I’ve heard that it destroys vitamin C and it is the caffeine, which is a drug that gives you that wake up, which depletes energy levels for the future and I’ve been reading about how milk products look good under a microscope, but the human body does not assimilate mild products very easily and I read a testimony of a woman who gave up dairy products for four months and was healed of rheumatoid arthritis and on returning to dairy it came back again. Plus countries that don’t drink milk have much better health than those countries that do! That we get just as much calcium as we need from raw fruit and veg which is perfect for the body to assimilate. Also that people who use protein products in fasting for fear of muscle waste have actually died as a result.

    First of all 523, I have been where you are at. When I was in 7th grade I was one of the heaviest kids. Then that summer transition before the eighth grade I lost 42 pounds. All I at was boiled eggs and drank water. I ate two boiled eggs in the morning (No Yolk). Then I wouldn’t eat until dinner. Dinner was always a small portioned meal, usually a GRILLED chicken salad. This wasn’t the healthiest way but it is a lot heathier than what your doing.

    Also I incorporated multi-vitamins, and I also ran twice a day. Don’t start off trying to kill yourself. I remember I was embarrased at my ability, and then eventually I was running longer distance and better times then anyone in my school. Then once I got into school I just ate right. Stay away from the sugars and caffeine. Also If you can cut bad carbs out of your diet and you exercise daily you will find much better and much faster results.

    Try to drink 12 8-ounce glasses of water a day MINIMUM. My friends all drink gatorade and powerade etc. That stuff is packed with corn syrup as it is high in fructose.

    Here is the main thing; if you have a tendency to snack then that should determine your diet. Even though you should limit your snacking throughout the day it is actually good for you to snack if you do it the right way. It doesn’t mean eat what you want whenever you want it or eat how much you want. It simply means that if you can incorporate it into your diet. For example: eat three course meals (don’t over do it), for me I start out with an english muffin with an egg white and a piece of canadian bacon. Then I eat a snack around 11:15 (Lean Beef Jerkey, peanuts, fruit, meal replacement bar/shake etc; lunch around 1:30, snack by 4, dinner no later than 6 PM ( eating later or off schedule can throw your diet off and is somewhat confusing to your body).

      At 14 years old, you shouldn’t worry too much about your weight. Your body is still going through many changes, so you don’t want to try and manipulate that process by dieting. The most important thing is to focus on eating nutritionally-dense meals — vegetables, fruits, whole grains (pasta, rice, breads and cereals), low-fat milk and lean meats. Check out the kids section at to get some free personalized advice on how many calories you should be eating each day and the types of foods you should eat as well.

      Exercising for 2 hours per day isn’t necessary — I assume you’re talking about in a gym or treadmill or something like that. It’s good to be physically active throughout the day, but don’t spend 2 hours of your day in the gym. Try to bike, rollerblade, swim or play sports each day. Also, simple exercises like push-ups, crunches and jumping rope are great for building strength at your age — do these types of exercises twice per week.

      Hope this helps 🙂

    You can still drink your daily dose off Organic apple cider vinegar without the bad taste. Try ACV On the Run. All natural fruit flavored sparkling water infused with Organic Apple Cider vinegar and plant derived Stevia. Tastes like your drinking a soda with zero carbs and calories. Kids love it too!

    Kylee and any other girl under the age of 15, Im 17, when I was between the ages of 11 and 14 I put my body through alot. Alot of girls grow during this stage then stop growing at around 15 or 16. So basically when I was 11, I weighed around 135 and I was 5’4 from that point until I was 13 I grew about 4 inches. I would go through stages where I would look “fat” and I would freak out and cry and stop eating when really I was about to grow an inch and strech out and I needed that extra pudge so I would look healthy. Give yourself a break. There is no miracle way to make yourself in top shape at your age. You are just fine the way you are and you will get out of this awkward body phase during highschool.

  28. RACHEL

    I’m 13 years old, and I drink water throughout the day. I occasionally have soda. Typically no more than once a month. I’m a healthy weight. Don’t starve yourself and crap. Eat a variety of foods. At least do some physical activity 60 mins a day. That’s how you can lose weight if your actually overweight or NEED to lose weight.
