Singapore was crowned the healthiest country in the world in 2012 by Bloomberg and has been ranked among the top 10 healthiest countries in the world in 2015 by 24/7 Wall St. Singapore’s obesity rate standing at 6.2% is among the lower rates globally, and exceptionally low compared to its healthiest counterparts. So is there a magic formula? Probably not. Must you necessarily break the bank to attain an ideal weight? Absolutely not! In fact, beverages laden with more calories tend to be pricier than the low-calorie counterparts!

According to the Institute of Medicine, an adequate intake (AI) of fluid for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) a day while that of the women is about 9 cups (2.2 liters). Consequently, the effective management of one’s fluid intake would significantly affect one’s body weight. Therefore, here is a list of dos and don’ts that may help you to shed some extra flab and achieve your desired weight using natural yet economical ways. However, do consume the liquids on the side of the dos in moderation as there may be unwanted side effects.
