With swimsuit season upon us, I wanted to remind you that certain drinks will add lots of excess flab to your body.
What’s more, an easy way to zap a few pounds before summer is to simply avoid my top 10 worst drinks of summer… actually there’s 11, but who’s counting. =)
Before we get going, a quick note…
Make sure when you are looking the nutrition facts panel on drinks, you look at servings per container because the labels are very tricky to read.
#1: Vitamin Water says it only has 13 grams (g) of sugar. However, there are 2.5 servings per container. So there are 32g of sugar in one 20 oz. bottle of Vitamin Water.
#2: Welch’s 100% Grape Juice says there is no added sugar but when you look on the label–just 8 oz., only about half of what somebody will drink in a glass of juice–has a whopping 39g of sugar. Even worse, it is fructose, which is a kind of sugar that is easily converted to belly fat.
#3: Coca Cola‘s second ingredient is high fructose corn syrup and just 8 oz. has 27g of sugar. Now I don’t mean to pick on Coke, most other soft drink brands are just as bad. Don’t forget that most soft drinks also contain a hefty amount of caffeine so you keep drinking more and more.
#4: Amp Energy Elevate contains 29g of sugar per 8 oz. and there are two servings, 16 oz., in the can shown in this picture. That means that you are getting nearly 60g of sugar in just one can.
#5: This Sobe Cranberry Grapefruit flavored beverage has 26g of sugar per 8 oz., and the bottle shown here is 2.5 servings, meaning that you are getting over 60g of sugar if you were to sit down and drink this product. Keep in mind that 4g of sugar equals one teaspoon. Would you dump 15 teaspoons of sugar into a glass of water and drink it?
#6: If you drink Rockstar Energy Drink, you are certainly not going to look like a chiseled rock star, you are going to look like an overweight couch potato. Each can of Rockstar Energy Drink contains 62g of sugar.
#7: I was shocked to find out that Gatorade contains high fructose corn syrup as its second ingredient and to think that they market this product towards athletes. What athletes really need is an abundance of fresh water and healthy high nutrient foods to replenish their bodies.
#8: What’s more, Tropicana’s cranberry juice beverage contains high fructose corn syrup and 32g of sugar per 8 fluid ounces.
#9: Starbucks Doubleshot Energy plus Coffee has two servings per container with each serving containing 14g of sugar. This means that a can of this “coffee” drink contains 28g of sugar.
#10: Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix is loaded with high fructose corn syrup. Keep in mind, the average “small” margarita weighs in at a huge 400 calories!
#11: Mr. and Mrs. T Sweet and Sour Mix has high fructose corn syrup as the second ingredient. Yet another reason why mixed drinks are hazardous to your waistline.
Remember, eating sugar causes body fat because sugar converts tofat in your body. So avoid sugar for a flat stomach.
