Most people ignore how many liquid calories they ingest. Any carbonated drink may it be a diet soda is not really good for weight loss. They obviously have less sugar but their sodium content can’t be neglected which contributes to fluid retention.
The role of coffee in weight loss is also debatable. We know that it increases the metabolism for a little while. But adding cream and sugar will end up in gaining more calories than losing. Similarly, a glass of wine taken with dinner will be available as a fast burning fuel for your body but it will unfortunately result in excessive fat storage as your dinner won’t be used.
So what we are left with is water. However, green tea is also a good alternative as it reduces the fluid retention. And if you don’t like its taste, chamomile tea with little honey or some lemon makes a good option.
