This article is great visually to tell us what we already know to be true. Have the goal to lessen or even drop your soda intake this year. Not only will you lose calories, but your skin and entire insides will thank you, plus you will have more energy.
Have a big glass (at least 20oz.) by your desk at all times, and refill when empty. You are supposed to drink half your body weight in ounces per day. Research also shows that water directly affects metabolism and your body's ability to burn through calories.
So don't tell your brain there is a drought and it needs to conserve energy. Go get that cup right now.
I recently saw an interview with supermodel Naomi Camp discussing her first thing in the am regimen. She drinks warm water (cold shocks the system) with lime juice to start a mini cleanse each day. If you don't have a lemon grove out back, just pour in a little bottled lemon juice into your water. It's amazing how clean you feel drinking this. Also a go-to of mine when sick with a cold. So if you want to have supermodel skin, it's a great start.
