Beverages and Lifestyles
Types of Beverages
Your body can tell you it’s time to drink, but it can't tell you what to drink. That's up to you. That's why it's important to learn how different beverages fit into your lifestyle.
While all beverages hydrate, some also provide important nutrients your body needs. Some relax you. Some energize you. Some simply satisfy your natural taste for sweetness - with calories or without. Some help you perform your best. And some can even help you manage health concerns. Any beverage can be part of a weight-maintenance diet. For many people who enjoy sweetened coffee drinks, soft drinks and other beverages with calories, this requires using good judgment when it comes to how much (portion size) and how often these beverages are consumed. Fortunately for those who watch their weight, there is also a wide variety of low-calorie thirst-quenching beverages, including waters, teas, coffee, and diet soft drinks.
