Are your beverage calories adding up?

Updated: 07-17-2012

When it comes to weight loss, all calories count. If you're drinking too many calories, look for easy ways to scale back: 1. Switch to low-fat or fat-free milk. 2. Choose water instead of juices and sodas. 3. Perk up plain water with a splash of juice or a twist of lemon or lime. 4. Trade alcoholic drinks for sparkling water.
