Summer is coming, and I won't lie; I am not ready! Like many of us sometimes do, I gained a lot of weight sitting at home during the winter, eating bags of chips, and drinking gallons of soda. With only a few months left until my body needed to be beach-ready, I realized I had to change my ways. At the beginning of my soda-free lifestyle transition, I noticed that I usually consume an energy drink in the morning (200 calories alone), a soda with my lunch (another 150 calories), and a vodka sprite to end the night (250 calories). I was consuming around 600 calories a day in just drinks alone! No wonder I wasn't losing any weight despite the fact I was living in the gym. I decided to make some swaps and drop the soda to help me drop the weight. Join me in dropping soda from your diet with these three easy swaps!
