Maintaining a healthy weight poses a significant difficulty for many individuals. While many diet products and programs claim to help you lose weight quickly, little scientific evidence exists to support such claims. Companies often market certain diet drinks, such as Fuze drinks, using methods that appeal to individuals battling the bulge. Knowing what goes into your drinks may help you decide whether or not to include them in your weight loss program.

Weight Loss

According to, regardless of what fad diets promise, weight management simply comes down to eating fewer calories than your body burns. A calorie is the unit of measurement used to measure the energy in foods and drinks. By limiting the amount of calories you eat, as well as increasing the amount you burn through physical activities, you can improve your chances of meeting your weight loss goals. Cutting out 500 calories every day can help you realize a weekly weight loss around 1 lb.


Beverages can add calories to your diet. Although the main reason you drink beverages may be to replenish the amount of moisture in your body, many drinks supply other substances, including calories. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn that what you drink can affect your weight. Avoid high-calorie drinks, such as creamy lattes, sweetened tea and regular colas. Substituting lower calorie choices, such as sparkling water, unsweetened teas and diet drinks may help you limit your consumption of calories from beverages.

Fuze Drinks

According to the Fuze website, the Fuze Slenderize drinks are low-calorie beverages that curb your cravings. The Slenderize drinks come in a variety of flavors, providing between five and 10 calories per serving. Each bottle contains approximately two servings. These drinks also contain various additional ingredients, depending on the flavor. Common ingredients include chromium and Citrimax, ingredients often promoted to aid in weight loss.


The University of Michigan Health Systems warns that controlled studies on chromium’s effect on weight loss yield conflicting results. While Citrimax proponents may claim that this substance acts as an appetite suppressant, scientific evidence does not support this claim. While Fuze drinks may not provide a quick and easy method to remove excess fat, they may help you quench your thirst without adding excessive calories.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend choosing low-calorie beverages over sugar-sweetened ones. Choosing low-calorie drinks that contain appetizing flavors, such as Fuze drinks, may help you satisfy your cravings without sabotaging your diet. Prevent nutritional deficiencies by eating a variety of nutritious foods from various sources, rather than relying on any single food or drink to help you meet your weight loss goals.
