Most healthy drinks are marketed for their nutritional value, but a closer look will tell you that it maybe a better idea to avoid such beverages. Sports drinks may not be filled with sugar, but they are high in sodium and pack an average of 200 calories per bottle.
Considering that an average dinner is between 500-700 calories, water (zero calories) would probably be a better option.
Juice can also be very deceiving. Companies use misleading words on the packaging such as ‘natural’ and ‘vitamins’ to lure consumers into buying their product. Most juices that come in a bottle or can are filled with high levels of sugar.
Having a cup of juice once in a while isn’t bad, just be sure not to make it a substitute for water.
