Weigh In Day

While you’re weighing yourself today, consider your goals for this week. Last week I toned down my salt intake. This week I’m on to drinks. According to a recent study, we drink 450 calories a day – that’s amounts to 23 pounds a year. Imagine losing nearly 2 pounds a month simply by cutting out drinks?

I found a Men's Health article uncovering the worst drinks in America. Here are a few that caught my attention. You can check out the rest of the list here.

Worst Juice Imposter:
Arizona Kiwi Strawberry
360 calories
84 g of sugars

Worst “Reduced Calorie” Smoothie:
Dunkin Donuts Reduced-Calorie Berry Smoothie
490 calories
4 g of fat (2.5 saturated fat)
97 g carbohydrates
83 g sugars

Worst Holiday Coffee Drink:
Starbucks Venti Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha
660 calories
22 g fat (15 g saturated)
95 g sugars

Worst Drink in America (This actually made me sick just reading it!)
Cold Stone Creamery PB&C Shake Gotta Have it Size
2,010 calories
131 g fat (68 g saturated)
153 g sugars

The article actually suggested you have ice cream (at 370 calories and 24 grams of fat) instead of this drink. Hard to believe ice cream is the healthier choice here.

What are you going to focus on this week? What’s your downfall drink?
