Drinking calories

Monday, February 24, 2014

It is amazing how many calories you can drink in one day if you are not careful. I normally only drink coffee, brewed teas and water, occaisionally a diet soda. Today with my lunch I saw Ocean Spray Cran-Grape drink in the vending machine and that sounded awfully good and sweet. Lordy, it has 120 calories per serving, if you drink the whole bottle, that is 240 calories just in a bottle of juice! It is only 15% juice on top of that.

    You are so right on that one! I am trying so very hard to not have any calories in liquid form. And "juices" are the worst. People think they are good for you, but they have as much sugar as soda.

    Some of the numbers on drinks totally amaze me .... I stick to water .... saves money when you go out and eat also as those drinks also cost a fortune !! roc

    I once drank orange juice while I was sick and couldn't believe that it was equivalent in calories to a typical lunch!! So crazy. Way to go with tracking it all!

    That is why water is my main drink. I want to chew my calories. LOL
