From the interview:
“The other day, I took my friend to the store to go grocery shopping so we could jump-start his weight loss together. We focused on a few simple items:
1. Almond Milk
He mentioned to me that he uses almond milk as the base of his shake — which I love. But then, we discovered that the almond milk he was using had 7g of sugar, versus the unsweetened kind (same brand!) and it had 0g of sugar! If you use the unsweetened kind, you won’t even notice the difference in your smoothie, especially if you sweeten it up with some blueberries.
2. Coconut Water
Coconut water is his post-workout drink of choice. It’s packed with nutrients, but the kind he’s using had 36g of sugar! So, we shifted his choice over to another coconut water choice with less sugar.
The trick here is to start with where you’re at. If you love almond milk, next time you’re at the grocery store, pay special attention to the labels. Look at all of your choices and be conscious of the hidden fats and sugars.”
