9 Simple Steps to Your Little Black Dress

Ditch liquid losers.

Cut out soda, sugary drinks, and caloric coffee concoctions in favor of calorie-free water and your body will reap big benefits. Trimming extra calories from sugar-packed beverages is a no-brainer way to lose weight. Consider this: If you cut out just one (20-ounce) regular soda every day for the next month, you’ll save yourself 7,500 calories. That’s at least two pounds right there — just from eliminating one daily soda (you’ll see similar results if you cut out sweetened waters, sugary coffee drinks, sports drinks, and fruit drinks)! Not only that, you’ll prevent almost 10 cups of straight sugar from entering your bloodstream. If you’re a constant sipper, you’ll see a big difference on the scale in less than a week.
