8 Diet Drinks Skinny Women Love to Sip
We all know that diet coke you chug every day isn't that healthy, but is there any diet drink that's actually good for you? These are the ones the healthiest and fittest among us stock up on
Sorry, but your beloved breakfast smoothie probably isn't very diet-friendly. If you're blending together a bunch of fruit and not much else, the resulting drink is high in calories and not particularly filling. And we've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it really is true says Terry Walters, nutrition expert and author of "Clean Food."

"Follow this rule when using a blender: For every fruit that goes in, add a vegetable," she says. For a breakfast smoothie that will keep you full until the afternoon, she suggests using frozen peaches, banana, and as much kale as you can squeeze into the container.

Blend it with rice milk, ice, and a spoonful of maple syrup.
