Just about any weight loss program will advise people to drink adequate water, because it’s true: hydration is essential for good health and good weight loss. However, especially in the early part of a weight loss effort, plain water is boring. So why not try some of these recipes?

The low-calorie offerings include the Spiced Tea (0 calories), the Lite Orange Shake (38 calories), Lite Orange Imitation Sangria (40 calories), Cold Strawberry Refresher (40 calories), the Cold Raspberry Refresher (76 calories) and the Lite Imitation Cappucino (12 calories). You’ll also save on calories compared to the regular versions with the Thick Chocolate Almost-Malt (222 calories compared to 624 in a regular malt), the Lite Milk Shake (137 calories compared to 425 for a regular milk shake), and the Lite Orange Imitation Sangria (40 calories compared to 150 for a regular sangria). So, you can continue to enjoy your favorite beverages and save calories as well!
