From our friends at Florida Hospital Center for Child and Family Wellness:
Do you know how much added sugar you are drinking from your drinks? If you drink one can of soda per day for 1 year you would take in a whopping 3,458 teaspoons of sugar total. That is almost 4 gallons of sugar in a year. Don’t forget about sports drinks, energy drinks, many types of teas and chocolate milk — all of which contain added sugar. Focus more on water and consider flavoring with sliced fruit or go with unsweetened tea or unflavored milk. Either way, it is best to work towards a less sweet state of mind.
