Liquid Matters

Many of us can get so concerned with what we are eating we forget that people can consume 25-30% of their daily calories through liquids.

Think about what you are drinking instead of focusing on what you eat you may be shocked at your caloric intake.

Drinking Your Calories
While the occasional caloric beverage won't sink your ship, making sugar-sweetened drinks a regular part of your life can add hundreds of calories to your diet. A 12-oz. can of regular soda has about 150 calories; many fountain drinks contain as many as 32 oz. (We're looking at YOU, movie-theater soda cups!) If you need a flavored drink every now and then, have a low-cal or calorie-free one like Crystal Light or Coke Zero; click here for some naturally sweetened picks.
