Hope this is in the right place.
Anyways, I was curious about something. Being from the South, I am a BIG drinker of Sweet Tea. I have recently decided to cut down drastically. I usually drink about a gallon in 24 hours, with a cup of sugar in that gallon (and now that I type that out I realize how MUCH that is). I was curious-- how many calories in a cup of sugar?
I looked it up, its a little less than 800 calories, at least according to wikianswers (not the best source I know, but better than nothing).
That really put things into perspective. If I can cut out my Sweet Tea (and just think, I use a lot less sugar in my tea than a lot of other people) think of the difference that would make???
What a difference-- a cup of sugar a day= 800 calories x 7 days a week= 5600 a week.
