Drinks to avoid: The layout of the “healthy” drink aisle has changed dramatically over the past few years, from expensive organic energy drinks to “healthy” smoothies. Looking at what’s behind the extravagant promises and eye-catching packaging, you’ll probably realize that many of these drinks aren’t healthy.
In fact, most of the sugar in our diet comes from sugar-sweetened drinks. You might be surprised to find hidden sugars on the ingredient list for beverages advertised as “good for you,” in addition to artificial sugars and artificial colors.
Here are seven drinks to avoid for a healthy body.
1. Fresh juice
Fruit juices can weaken the body’s immune system. This is because the body needs more energy to warm a cold drink to body temperature. As a result, the body may become weaker and more susceptible to disease. Experts recommend eating fresh fruit and avoiding fruit juices. Despite its health benefits, avoid eating it cold, especially during the winter.
2. Sweet coffee drinks
A cup of coffee has many great health benefits, but frothy mixtures like frappuccinos and other delicious coffee drinks probably outweigh all the benefits of coffee. Do not use sweet syrups or whipped toppings on desserts, especially when making coffee drinks.
Excessive consumption of artificial sweeteners can cause taste buds and taste preferences to change over time, increasing cravings for extremely sweet meals and reducing the enjoyment of naturally sweet foods like fresh fruit. There is no problem if it is a small amount, but be careful with artificial sweeteners and carbonated drinks that contain artificial sweeteners.
Buttermilk is good for your health, but we recommend avoiding it in the winter. The mucus release caused by cold dairy products can enhance exposure to flu and fever.
5. Premixed Alcoholic Beverages
Premixed drinks are essentially a hangover in a bottle.
6. Ready-made protein shakes
If you check the ingredient list, you might be surprised to find that most protein shakes contain sugar, artificial sweeteners, preservatives and additives.
7. Bottled smoothies
Even though they advertise claims that their products have “no added sugar”, the majority of smoothies are essential “health” beverages in disguise. So claims can be spared, but the overall sugar load is still substantial and is often out of balance with the fiber and protein that help regulate blood sugar levels and keep you satisfied. .
