Just saw this ad on AOL on “Anti-Sugar” and I have to say it is about time our government get this message out to a country that is addicted to the stuff!!!!!!!!!!
Check it out your yourself and be sure to watch the VIDEO:
Now I am not saying I NEVER drink the stuff as I do, however not on a daily basis and I also raised my daughter to only to drink the stuff “occasionally” as well.
The main drink sources in our household are as follows……
- WATER – NO grams of sugar!!!
- Iced Tea (made with a little sweetener) – No grams of sugar!!!
- Apple Juice (1 small glass a day) – 14 grams of sugar, 4 ounces
- Orange Juice (1 small glass a day) – 14 grams of sugar, 4 ounces
- V8 (1 small glass a day) – 12 grams of sugar, 4 ounces
- Milk (mainly with cereal)- 11 grams of sugar, 12 ounces
So as you can see most of the above are pretty low in sugar and the top 2 that we drink the most have NO SUGAR in them at all!
Compared to 1 12-ounce can of soda having 42 or more grams of sugar I think we do pretty good and even though the “juices” do have a few more grams of sugar then I would like we still drink them as they do offer many vitamins (unlike soda) and are consumed in moderation (always less than 8 ounces per serving) and the sugar found in milk is all natural, not added so I don’t feel bad about that one.
And, yes, we do add “sweetener” to our Iced Tea and yes there is a debate on if the usage of sweeteners are safe, but we drink this in moderation as well so I don’t feel to bad with that one.
We mainly drink WATER in our household, it is our #1 drink!!!!!!!!!
What is your #1 drink???
Do you drink lots of soda???
Did this article/video make you more aware of how much sugar you may be drinking?
