In winter our bodies start to crave warm and filling foods and drinks. These often tend to be sweet things, which can spell trouble when you are trying to lose pregnancy weight.  4 hot drinks that could hinder your weight loss

While these foods and drinks may ‘comfort’ us in the short term, some of them aren’t exactly ideal for a healthy eating plan.
When we take a look at some of the regular sized hot drinks made with full fat milk from some popular cafes, you can see the calories, fat and sugar content is much higher than you may have realised.

* All statistics are based on regular sized drinks made with full cream milk.
So please take our advice today and stick to a regular sized flat white or latte without the sweet syrups or added chocolate. These will set you back around 100 calories or less and can be enjoyed as part of your healthy eating plan.
