Juice & Soft Drinks: Calories

Juice is high in carbs due to its sugar content and generally delivers a high calorie count per serving. Natural juices, however, can be rich in vitamins and micronutrients. Take a look at the ingredients list to determine the amount of added sugars. Soft drinks are generally considered “empty calories,” being highly processed and delivering little nutritional value.

Fruit Juice and What to Watch Out For

A simple glass of orange juice, a smoothie, or even a juice shot, it can be fun to get creative with fruit juices! And while pure fruit juice can be a great way to add some essential vitamins, minerals and electrolytes to your day, be careful. It’s a lot easier to drink calories than it is to eat them and with juice, the sugars can add up quickly. Combining a small amount of fruit juice with some sparkling water, for example, can be a great way to reduce the calorie count and make the drink more refreshing!

Soft Drinks and Sodas

Nutritionally, soft drinks and sodas have little benefit to the body, but they have become a regular part of many people’s diets. With sizes increasing regularly and unlimited refills at restaurants, they can also easily wreak havoc on one’s daily calorie budget.

As with anything, portion control is key. If you’re looking to cut back on soda in general, it can be helpful to set yourself a daily or weekly limit and gradually decrease the amount you’re consuming. A healthier alternative would be to enjoy a smoothie, fruit juice, or ideally the fruit itself. Other alternatives include fruit tea, kombucha or sparkling water (this will give you that fizziness you’re craving). You could also add some fresh fruit to sparkling water to imitate a soft drink. Finally, if you’re looking to stay hydrated and avoid excess sugar and calories, water is always a good choice.
