Sugar Laden Drinks: Don't Do It!

Drinks That Make You Fat

If you’re looking to pack on a lot of belly fat, these products will help you do it. Make sure when you are looking at the supplement facts panel you look at servings per container because the labels are very tricky to read.

  • Vitamin Water says it only has 13 grams (g) of sugar. However, there are 2.5 servings per container. So there are 32 g of sugar in one 20 oz. bottle of Vitamin Water.

  • 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 39 g of sugar. Even worse, it is fructose, which is a kind of sugar that is easily converted to belly fat.

  • Coca Cola’s second ingredient is high fructose corn syrup and just 8 oz. has 27 g. 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.

  • Amp Energy contains 29 g of sugar per 8 oz and there are two servings, 16 oz, in one can. Which means you are getting nearly 60 g. of sugar in just one can. YIKES!!

  • Sobe Cranberry Grapefruit flavored beverage has 26 g of sugar per 8 oz., and one bottle is 2.5 servings, meaning that you are getting over 60 g of sugar if you were to sit down and drink this whole product. Keep in mind that 4 g of sugar equals one teaspoon. Would you dump 15 teaspoons of sugar into a glass of water and drink it

  • Have a Rockstar Energy Drink to look like a chiseled rock star . . . . I think NOT!! Instead you will end up looking like an overweight couch potato. Each can of Rockstar Energy Drink contains 62 g of sugar!

  • 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.

  • What’s more, Tropicana’s cranberry juice beverage contains high fructose corn syrup and 32 g of sugar per 8 fluid ounces.

  • Starbucks Doubleshot Energy plus Coffee has two servings per container with each serving containing 14 g of sugar. This means that a can of this “coffee” drink contains 28 g of sugar.

  • 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!

  • Most Sweet and Sour Mixes have high fructose corn syrup as the second ingredient. Yet another reason why mixed drinks are hazardous to your waistline.

To Your Health!
