Actress Eva Longoria drinks at least three liters water per day! You should drink about half your body weight in ounces each day. So if you weigh 120 lbs (54 kg), drink 60 ounces (1.7 l) or about 8 cups. Flavor you drinks with slices of lemon, orange, strawberry or cucumber.

There are studies that suggest that diet drinks nearly doubles your risk of being overweight. Actress Jessica Alba and Paris Hilton believe that you shouldn’t have diet drinks if you are trying to lose weight, and according to studies they may be on to something.
If you can’t stay off the coffee and you don’t take it black, than at least think of what you’re putting into your coffee. This will help making a difference if you are trying to lose weight. Instead of adding artificial sweeteners, which can contribute to obesity, you should rather take a small amount of real sugar. Substitute your regular milk with unsweetened almond or soy milk which has fewer calories than regular milk. This is how the celebrities take their coffee, if you hadn’t figured that out. My guess is that Ashley Olsen, a serious coffee drinker at Starbucks, pays attention to these things. At Starbucks you can get your coffee with soy or nonfat milk. Furthermore, at Starbucks home page you will find a nutrition fact table to keep track on those calories. Perhaps that’s why so many celebrities choose Starbucks?

Carbs are the first fuel to get burned, so filling up on carbs gives you quick immediate energy release. Having lots of carbs at dinner time is not necessary since you exert very little energy at this time of the day. Don’t eat carbs before going to sleep. Kate Beckinsale’s trainer insists that she shouldn’t eat carbs at night time.
