Watch Out for Sugary Drinks

922A startling trend was reported by The Department of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina. In 2002, calories from beverages went up by 21% (when compared to a study from 1965). If you’re making an effort to watch your weight, be sure to watch what you drink. Sugary drinks sneak many unnecessary empty calories into your diet.*

Extra calories hide in more places than just soda. Watch out for fruit drinks and sport drinks as well. Instead of giving in to sugary beverages, shake up the flavor of zero-calorie water with fresh slices or oranges, lemons and limes.
