What is better than an ice cold can of Coca-Cola? Definitely NOT the 44 grams of sugar and 136 calories? Your body can only process 23 grams before starts to converts the excess sugar into non-essential body fat. Whether you’re a Dr. Pepper, Coke, or Pepsi fan take a look at how many grams of sugar are in that can of caramel colored sugar. But now watch this…what happens if you are really “thirsty” and splurge on a 16 ounce bottle? You are now getting no less than 44 grams and it only increases the larger the container. Don’t forget how much can our bodies process before the sugar is converted into non-essential body fat! ONLY 23 grams a day!!!
Secret: An 8 ounce can of soda contains 8 tsp. Of sugar and a 16 oz can contains 11 which is just shy of a quarter cup of sugar!
