Sugar content in drinks

Its no secret that there is sugar in soft drinks. I’m not telling you anything new and radical here. But I found this discovery in a local Chiro’s office really encouraging.

I was at a local Chiropractors office the other day. Brighton Beach Chiropractic on Bay street in Brighton if you are interested. I was there to actually just have a chat with one of the doctor’s there, Ben. I was not in need of any services but as a business owner I like to catch up with acquaintances to talk shop and learn about how others run a business and learn from each other. Its the best free tool out there when you want to build and learn to run a business and make contacts.

So anyway, I was at Brighton Beach Chiropractic waiting reception and I noticed on the desk that they were passionate about sugar too! ( I just love coincidences like that). They are pretty committed to overall health at their practise and healthy eating was a huge part of that. I took some snaps for you guys to see their awesome sugar display.

I guess the one that surprised me most was actually that nutrient water. I never had the stuff but see a lot of people drinking it for better health I guess. Also, look at the stats for red bull. More sugar than coke!!!!! Unbelievable.

Pretty much any drink you purchase except for water and plain milk  is going to have a truck load of added sugar in it. So my best advice would be to just stick to those two. If you want to mix it up a bit get sparkling water (and look like a Yuppie!). Your body will thank you and you’ll probably save money.

  1. Wanted to let you know about Zevia, my absolute favourite soft drink, when I need the bubbles. It isn’t cheap, but I dare anybody to tell the difference between the sugar filled drinks. Available at Aussie health products. I have asked Coles to stock them, but still can’t see them on the shelves.
