Sugar is Not Nice

Sugar on ice is not nice.   Beverages today are loaded with calories and sugar.   Start this week by reading nutrition labels and choosing low-fat milk or water, instead of soda or energy drinks.

When it comes to our health, we should be concerned with everything we put in our mouths.  What we consume today will determine our health tomorrow.

So, we ask ourselves if drinking soda is okay?  According to many studies and authorities on the subject, the answer is “No”!  Sodas and a lot of fruit juices are full of sugar which can present a health hazard.  A 12-ounce can of soda contains over 8 teaspoons of sugar.   In addition to causing cavities, sugar can impair the immune system, lead to the onset of degenerative diseases, and cause the body to store more fat.

So, instead of reaching for a soda or a fruit juice laden with sugar, grab a bottle of water and drink to a healthier life!

If you feel that you are addicted to sodas or like your coffee with lots of sugar, please share your story?  Let’s work together to find ways to wean ourselves off the sugar as we strive to get fit and well.
