Another effective medium to lose weight is to avoid or saying NO to sugary drinks such as cold drinks, packaged fruit juices, soda drinks and many other such kind of drinks with which market is flooded.
Such drinking habits add up to our calorie intake and you end up with gaining extra kgs.

Drink Ample Amounts of Water
One can also go for drinking 10-15 glasses of water to boost up the process of weight reduction.
If you drink 2 glasses of water at least half an hour before meal you will automatically eat lesser food leading to fewer calories consumed.
Also beverages containing caffeine such as green tea or black coffee help to further increase BMR (basal metabolic rate)
