- Sugar and spice and everything not so nice. California law makers are proposing a health warning on sugary drinks. Under the new bill, all beverages (not just soda pop) that provide more than 75 Calories from added sugar per 12 oz would have to have a statement that reads: State of California Safety Warning: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.” 194 more words
I posted this about 3 years ago and wanted more of you to see it... It is amazing how what we eat really adds up - more so, the amount of calories that are in what we drink. These are the calories that really sneak up on us and we may not realize. I will be starting to post some more "nutritional" posts this year but wanted to kick start it with this old post of mine because it is very detailed on exactly how fast sugar adds up in our beverages... and those extra calories mean extra pounds! Since I no longer live in the south, I will be working on another popular beverage that others may be able to relate to that don't drink sweet tea in large quantities. Enjoy the read and maybe you will learn something from it. HAPPY SATURDAY!
