Summertime is the season of lazy beach days, blockbuster movies, and diet traps. From county fairs to beachside bars, we’re constantly barraged with waistline wreckers that pack unhealthy amounts of calories, fat, sugar, and sodium. While everydayhealth.com says there’s nothing wrong with indulging now and then, it’s important to be calorie- and nutrient-conscious.
The question is can you can make the best choices when faced with temptation? Check out the Q and As?
In the drink cooler
Which is lower in calories?
A. Sweet iced tea
Answer: Neither, both contain the same number of calories (about 260 to 280 in a 2-pint serving). That’s a lot to consume through a straw. With zero calories, water and unsweetened iced tea are better thirst quenchers. If you’re really craving a sweet, cool drink, grab a juice-box sized lemonade for half the calories.
