The simpler your sip selection, the better for your body. You already know this: Choosing drinks with sugar, sodium, and fat weigh down your system in ways that make it tougher to be toned. Also, if you have access to learn the ingredients of whatever you’re drinking, seek out drinks with uncomplicated and easy-to-understand ingredients.

 

2. Water

You’re probably not surprised that water is number one for your metabolism. The common understanding is often that water “flushes” fat from the body, but Serena Poon, CN, CHN goes a little deeper into the science. She told Parade that studies have shown that water can boost your body’s energy spend and turn stored fat into fuel. On that note, we’re thirsty!

 

2. Coffee

Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CDN, and the CEO of NY Nutrition Group, also told Parade what you’ve perhaps already heard: Caffeinated coffee is a stimulant that can increase your resting metabolic rate while also suppressing your appetite. Here’s something interesting, too: That hungry feeling you might get after you’ve drunk coffee on an empty stomach might be your body telling you two things: That the caffeine is wearing off, and it really is time to eat.

 

3. Green tea

Moskovitz told Parade that green contains EGCG, a compound that’s been shown to increase resting energy expenditure (that’s the amount of calories you burn when your body is physically inactive).
