What drinks to consume during a healthy and balanced diet? 

Drinks like zero coke or diet coke have sweeteners. The latter, recognized by your body as real sugar, will increase your blood sugar level, and a few hours after consumption, will make you want to sweeten.
Do you want to reduce your consumption, but you never know what to replace your favorite soda drink with?

Here are the 10 drinks to favor.

1. Water

Water is the ultimate slimming drink.
It does not contain any macronutrients and therefore has no energy. It helps you stay hydrated and contains useful minerals for the body.
Tap water is the most affordable, and you can remove chlorine from your water by simply letting it sit for a day in the open air before consuming it.
If you prefer bottled water, opt for water preferably low in sodium (to fight against water retention).

2. Lemon juice
For 100 ml,
One lemon contains around 20 calories.

A glass of lemon juice in the morning on an empty stomach is ideal to start the day.
This drink, which is a booster and rich in vitamin C, acts on digestion and hydration at the same time. Lemon is alkaline and rebalances the pH. Your day can start with a good touch: instead of starting with a sugary food that will raise your blood sugar.
Antioxidant drink not to be ignored especially when you want to lose weight.
