Talk about healthy living
2017 is a new year
I am absolutely going to achieve 3 things:
- A healthier life – including losing weight (sound familiar this time of year?) Incredibly important. And never too late to start!
- Master my time – to get the most out of what I am given
- Meet my business goals – right up on the wall here to remind me
20 questions for the topics for these broadcasts. Check out the link to the personalized health assessment if you want to see all of the questions – and get your own results. See how you measure up going into 2017!
Today’s question is:
How many times per week do you consume sugary drinks (soda, juices, etc.)?
- 1–2 times
- 3–6 times
- More than 6 times
Time to make a big change!
We know they taste good, but sugary drinks or soft drinks are major contributors to obesity.
Consider this: Did you know an average can of sugar-sweetened soda or fruit punch contains about 150 calories mainly from sugar? That’s about 8 teaspoons of table sugar.
Just one 20-ounce bottle of a sugary beverage per day can result in gaining 25 extra pounds per year—25 pounds!
And based on the amount you’re consuming on a weekly basis, that number could be higher for you.
And that doesn’t include how these kinds of drinks contribute to the development of diabetes and heart diseases.
It’s definitely time to make a big change!
You’re ready to make some healthier choices, right?
As a part of what you’re doing, look to reduce or eliminate sugary drinks from your diet. Start by cutting your intake in half and then go from there.
If you want to lose weight or maintain your current weight, this one step may help you control weight gain. And you will also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A definite win-win.
I hope this made some sense for you
