When we think about how many calories we are consuming, we sometimes leave out the calories that we consume as beverages. There is some evidence that the body does not respond to calories in beverages the same way it does to calorie in food. Your body may not register the calories you drink, so you could end up consuming more calories than you need.

Making some simple changes in the beverages you choose can make a big difference. Check out these two different days of beverage choices.
