This article reports that 5% of the population drinks over 4 cans of soda per day and that 50% of the population drinks at least one soda daily when health recommendations are to consume less than 1/2 can daily. Consider this: “An average can of sugared soda or juice contains 10 – 12 teaspoons of sugar”. Instead of sodas, try herbal teas. I you have a sweet tooth, try adding a small amount of dried stevia herb or stevia extract; and licorice teas are naturally sweet. So many flavors to choose from, reduces sugar consumption and calories, and even saves money!
