Last month I discussed why daily hydration is important, why you need to read labels carefully plus recommended you avoid brands that contain artificial flavors, colors, sugars, and salts.
This month I will help you make specific decisions as life keeps you on the road and on the go. In the table below, common drinks with the amount of calories and sugar per serving listed for each. Being informed is a fundamental step to unlocking optimal performance. Next time you are on the road, keep in mind the hidden calories and sugars that may be in your favorite drink!
