Don’t Fall for Natural Soda

Don’t be swayed by the beautiful imagery on cans and bottles of “pure” sodas or by their healthy-sounding advertisements.

Sometimes, these sodas are simply carbonated sugar water—and as caloric as common sodas. Most comprise cane sugar or “actual sugar” (that’s, sucrose) as an alternative of excessive fructose corn syrup, however sugar is sugar. Some pure weight loss program sodas comprise stevia extract (from a South American shrub), however there’s no proof it’s extra healthful than different sugar substitutes.

A number of exceptions are comprised of fruit juice and carbonated water, with no further sugars, although they could nonetheless have a lot of energy.

For a no-calorie different, attempt flavored seltzer water (be sure it has no added sugar), or add seltzer to just a little fruit juice.
