Americans easily consume 1300-1500 calories a day from fluids. When you're not burning those calories, this translates into nearly a half-pound of stored body fat.
Alternative medicine expert, Bryce Wylde spoke to Roxanne Stein to explain how little things can add up big in saving calories.


8oz juice 400 calories

20oz soda 280 cals

16oz fruit smoothie drink from your favourite coffee shop 270 cals


A 12oz can soda (with dinner) 150 cals

Here's how we can reduce calories, and besides all the weight you'll drop, many drinks contain artificial flavors, colors, artificial sweeteners, too much caffeine, chemical preservatives etc

These cause immune dysfunction, hyperactivity, asthma, allergies, problems with brain and nervous system dysfunction, seizures, weight gain.

The makeover...


12oz coffee with 2oz milk/cream and natural sweeteners 50 cals

Bottle of water  0 cals


Bottle of water with a scoop of fiber  (we need fiber and better hydration!)

16oz fruit smoothie drink: 1/4 avocado (40 cal), 1/2 banana (45 cal) and 31 gr protein (120 cal) Total 205 cal


A sweet tea with natural sweeteners 0 cals
