Recently a judge in New York City put a stop to a ban that would
invoke portion control on sugary drinks in the Big Apple,
furthering the debate amongst beverage consumers all across the
country (1). The ban proposed a 16-ounce limit on sugary drinks,
both bottled and fountain, in some establishments such as movie
theaters and restaurants (1).
While you may not be concerned about the ban on sugary sodas, it
might surprise you to know how sugar can sneak into many beverages
- you may not even realize that a lot of beverages you are drinking
are high in sugar. Did you know that sugar has many names and any
number of them can show up on a drink label? Here are just a few
- Corn syrup
- Fruit juice concentrates
- High-fructose corn syrup
Why not choose a beverage that doesn't contain sugar that you
can get in any size? Of course - we are talking about water!
Drinking water provides many health benefits, including cutting
down on those empty calories you get from sugary beverages.
