Drink some water or green tea. Don’t be fooled into thinking that any of these sugar laden juices or sports drinks are good for you. Chances are that they are high in simple sugars and carbohydrates. Take a look at the ingredients and I’m sure one of the first 2-3 ingredients will be high fructose corn syrup, one of the main causes of the obesity epidemic here in the U.S.. It’s no coincidence that since beverage makers starting using this awful ingredient in the mid 1980s that we’ve gotten fatter as a country and have seen a rise in diabetes and heart disease.
What about diet sodas you ask? Stay away from them to. The artificial sweeteners in these drinks will wreak havoc with your insulin levels helping you pack on some body fat when you thought you were doing something good for yourself.
Juices and diet drinks are not really as “healthy” as you may think they are.
