Liquid calories are calories found in things we drink.
If you’re trying to lose or manage your weight, it’s important to remember that eating calories is a better choice than drinking them,
Some types of drinks with liquid calories include:
coffee with sugar
Instead, try drinking more water, unsweetened tea, juice with no sugar added, and low-calorie drinks.
“Liquid calories” should be pretty self-explanatory, but just in case, what we’re talking about here is any source of calories that doesn’t come from solid food. That includes Coke and other soft drinks, protein shakes, fruit juice, etc. Technically, alcoholic drinks also have a lot of calories, but alcohol is a bit of a special case, so we’ll leave that out for now.
It’s very common weight loss advice to cut out liquid calories for weight loss.
Liquid calories in just about any form — alcohol, juice or soda — are stealth calories. … When people eat calories in the form of solid food, they naturally compensate by reducing the rest of their food intake. But when people ingest liquid calories, they don’t compensate for them by eating fewer calories.
