This is one of the most common reasons why you are not losing weight. Empty calories from fruit juice, energy drinks, wine, and cocktails really matter. Try to reduce their amount and to lose weight, opt for water or unsweetened tea. Choose an espresso instead of cafe latte, dark chocolate instead of cookies, vinaigrette instead of creamy Caesar dressing, fresh fruit instead of dried fruit and so on. Small changes in your food habits can save you a lot of extra calories and help you to lose weight without effort.
