Healthy drinks that are actually not so healthy.

Better Body Programme in London - The Better Body Guru


When you pick up a 'healthy' drink on your way to work or at lunch how many of us stop to look at the label??

 

Errr not many I would guess

 

But some of the drinks we think are healthy for us, actually contain such high sugar content they are the opposite of healthy.

Check out these drinks:

 

PRET - freshly squeezed orange juice (500ml) = sugar equivalent of 3 McVities Hobnob biscuits. This drink is almost as sugary pound for pound as Coke, and it contains more calories than a can of Coke!

Instead you can opt for Pret Carrot Juice: 60 calories, 0.3g fat, 5g sugar

 

INNOCENT POMEGRANATES, BLUEBERRIES & ACAI SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE (250ml) = sugar equivalent 3.5 Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Donuts

Don't be fooled by the two portions of your five a day. The high fructose sugar content piles the pressure on your liver, and the fact that it's a smoothie makes virtually no difference.

The fibre has been so heavily pulped during the manufacturing process that the full sugar load of this smoothie is still rapidly absorbed by the body.

 

THIS WATER PURE SQUEEZED LEMON & LIMES (250ml) = sugar equivalent 2 Kellogg's Chewy Marshmallow Rice Krispies Bars

 

Imagine taking a glass of water, pouring in four teaspoons of sugar, and still calling it water...errr I don't think so?

It's a joke that this water is allowed to be advertised as water, but only has 20 per cent less sugar than a full fat Coke.


COSTA MASSIMO RED BERRY COOLER = sugar equivalent 16 Nature Valley Oats & Honey Granola Bars

Slurp this drink down for breakfast on your way to work and you'll have consumed 108 per cent of your RDA of sugar.

Just because it's got fruit in the name, people like you and me think it's healthy, but the reality is this has almost as much sugar as three cans of Coke.

I could go on!! There are so many drinks out there advertised as healthy but actually in the full quantity, have heaps and heaps of sugar in.

 

Next time you pick up a juice or smoothie check out the sugar content per serving you might be surprised.

 

In small servings they are fine, but when we are drinking them all the time it doe have a effect on our diet and health and calories in.

 

Opt for a glass or water with a squeeze of lemon or lime to add flavour, your body will thank you for
