  • Make better drink choices — more water, less sugar

    Most of us realize the importance of keeping sugars and fats to a minimum in our diets, but often we only apply that to the foods we eat. The types of drinks we are consuming could be adding empty calories and causing us to gain extra pounds.

    Consider this: a medium full-fat mocha adds 400 calories to your diet while a 20-ounce soda, on average, contains 250 calories and a fruit drink adds 230 calories. Many times, these are extra calories we haven’t accounted for, and as a result, they could easily push us over our daily calorie limit and cause us to gain weight.

    For example, any time I’d not spent every day in the place I was renting, my landlord should’ve given me a break.

    I also learned that simply by cleaning the apartment once a week, my landlords could have taken a little more off.
