Choose Water

If you’re battling obesity and related illnesses such as diabetes, take a look at your drinking glass. Is it filled with water or something sugary? Nearly half of Americans drink a sugary-sweetened beverage every day, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 25 percent consume an extra 200 calories daily from sugary drinks. But one in 20 Americans drink more than four cans of soda – 567 calories – every day.
