Better beverage choices can help fight and prevent obesity and diabetes. There are many options for what to drink, but without a doubt, water is the best choice: It’s calorie-free, caffeine free and it’s as easy to find as the nearest tap. Drinks that are loaded with sugar are the worst choice because they are loaded with lots of calories but provide virtually no other nutritional value. Many people turn to drinks with artificial sweeteners because of the lower calorie count but these “sweeteners” may actually cause you to eat more. Are you ready to make healthe drinking your priority? Click here to get more details on HealthéDrinks and our list of drinks to avoid.

What is the all the fuss about ARTICIFICAL SWEETENERS?
When trying to reduce overall caloric intake, artificial sweeteners are often used as a replacement for sugar. However, these chemical sweeteners should be used sparingly because they are not metabolized the same by the body, and may have unexpected effects on your health. Artificial sweeteners may also actually cause you to eat more and be hungrier. This will cancel out the effects of the HealthéTrim and you will not see the Maximum Results. A little raw sugar is a better choice because it is metabolized properly.
Types of Artificial Sweeteners:
- Sucralose (splenda)
- Aspartame (nutrasweet)
- Agave Nectar
Alcohol depletes vitamins and minerals in the body, wreaking havoc on our digestive, cardiovascular and immune systems. It adds calories to your daily intake and is metabolized as a fat in the liver. Also, alcohol is a diuretic (it dehydrates), which will ultimately affect your results with HealthéTrim.
If you do consume alcohol, red wine and clear liquor, like vodka, have lower sugar content. Try to avoid beer, white wine, and dark liquors, as they are higher in sugar and will not help in weight loss.
