One suggestion I frequently make is to avoid liquid calories. What are liquid calories?
Liquid calories are usually sugary drinks likes sodas, sweetened coffees, fruit juices, alcoholic beverages, or energy drinks. These beverages are a source of extra energy which your body will store as fat. I highly suggest that you avoid any sugary drinks. So what do you replace them with? The answer is simple, try water.
If you are hooked on sugary beverages, the transition could be hard. I have heard people complain about head aches, fatigue, and random hunger pains as they make the transition. But trust me, making the switch will be worth it. Start now, make clean fresh water your new beverage of choice. This is a life style change which once made, will greatly reduce the number of calories you consume in a day.
Best of luck!
