Exclamation Are You Drinking Too Much Sugar??

Are You Drinking Too Much Sugar ?

Too much sugar can be dangerous to your health and can prevent you from reaching your weight loss goals. Always check the label and try to keep your sugar intake to 12 grams or less per meal or every 3 hours. Below is a list of common drinks with their corresponding teaspoons and grams of sugar.

Apple Juice 8oz - 7.5 tsp = 30 grams
Cranberry Juice 8oz - 8.5 tsp =34 grams
Fruit Nectar 8oz - 8.5 tsp =34 grams
Grape Juice 8oz - 10 tsp = 40 grams
Orange Juice 8oz - 6.5 tsp =26 grams
Capri Sun 8oz - 7.5 tsp = 30 grams
Fruitopia 20oz - 18 tsp = 72 grams
Slim Fast 10oz - 10 tsp = 40 grams
Gatorade 16oz - 7 tsp = 28 grams
Coke 12oz - 8.5 tsp = 34 grams
Cherry/Van Coke 12oz - 10 tsp = 40 grams
Dr. Pepper 12oz - 10 tsp = 40 grams
Hawaiian Punch 12oz - 11 tsp = 44 grams
Crystal Light 12oz - .5 tsp = 2 grams
Mountain Dew 12oz - 6 tsp = 24 grams
Pepsi 12oz - 10 tsp = 40 grams
Diet Pepsi 12oz - 0 tsp = 0 grams
7-Up 12oz - 9.5 tsp = 38 grams
Sprite 12oz - 9 tsp = 36 grams

There is a good chance that one of these drinks would supply the total amount of carbohydrates you need at each meal. We highly suggest that you consume your carbohydrates from eating nutritious food rather than these sugar loaded drinks.

(If there are any other sodas/beverages you have the information on and would like me to add them to this list, just PM me the details and I'll do my best to add them for you. )

[b] The word “angel” comes from the Greek angelos which means “messenger from God,” and it holds within its sound great power.

Diet drinks are a great alternative, and I still feel that having juice or a soda every once in a while is fine, as long as you are maintaining a high activity level!
