Rethink Your Drink
Yesterday I had the pleasure of counseling a newly diagnosed diabetic. At 34 years old, he drank more sweetened beverages than ever. Trust me when I say, sugared beverages can be the culprit to increased weight and potentially develop into diabetes. Sure, energy balance and caloric intake is important but rethinking your drink should always be step 1 since it's usually the simplest form of excess calories and carbohydrate to identify.
