Sugar-sweetened beverages can increase belly fat.
A study on type 2 diabetics found that people who consumed at least one cup of sugar-sweetened beverages daily had higher belly fat than those who consumed less.
Your brain does not process liquid calories the same way as it processes solid calories, so you may eat too many calories and store them later on as fat.
You can lose belly fat by limiting your consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages like:
- Sweet Tea
- alcohol mixers containing sugar
If you want to lose belly fat, limiting the consumption of liquid sugars, such as sugar-sweetened drinks, is important.
