Liquid Calories ("Inspired Shakes" might be worth it!)

From the beginning of my journey, one of the first changes I made was to eliminate most (if not all) calories from fluids.  Here is some of my rationale...


.   *  calories in drinks are usually 'empty' (no nutritional value)
.   *  the act of chewing is satisfying
.   *  I tend to gulp when I drink and not savor like I do when I eat solid food
.   *  I relate drinking with 'thirst' not with 'hunger'


I have had an occasional smoothie.  And I did sample the soda/pop (not diet) at the World of Coke in Atlanta during our vacation... but that is pretty much it.

I just read an article by another FitClick blogger that might change my mind about the occasional 'liquid treat' or even meal.  I wanted to share it...
