Changeling

Question:Do you agree that most people "drink" more calories than they realize?

Answer:

YES! One sports drink bottle can be 100 extra calories, one energy drink can be another 150 calories, one flavored coffee can pack as much as 500+ calories. Add in juices, milk, alcohol, etc, & you're looking at TONS of extra calories each day. And, these are calories that don't fill you up, so you're bound to still eat the same amount that you'd regularly eat, eventually leading to weight gain.
