Rethink your drink

Choosing the right beverage is important for maintaining healthy eating habits, as well as staying hydrated and energized during warmer months. But many people don’t realize how much sugar, and how many calories, are lurking in their favorite drinks. Sugar and calories from beverages can really add up:

  • The average American consumes 152 pounds of sugar annually
     
  • Drinking one 12-ounce can of soda daily can lead to weight gain – about 15 pounds per year
     
  • People who drink soda daily consume 55,000 more calories per year than those who do not

Replacing sugar-sweetened beverages (soda, energy drinks) with healthier options (water) is one way to reduce your sugar and calorie intake.
