What’s your favourite drink? And what do you really drink throughout the day? Do you ever wonder how many calories are in your favourite beverage?
This chart is a great visual to show you just how much calories you’ll find in orange Juice, coffee, cola, fruit drink, iced tea, and beer. Look down below ~ how about introducing more lemon water to your diet and dropping those fruit juices for good – eat real fruit instead!
I like tea and lemon water most of the time ;) And sometimes we have an all-natural fruit syrup around that I add to my daughter’s drinks or even tea to sweeten up life. Wish they showed tea here, but most herbal teas also have 0 calories. I’ll drink to that! And reserve my calories intake, which is about 1600 calories a day/ per my body weight and height, for the real good nutritious food!
Are you puzzled by how many calories you need daily?
You can apply this simple rule to calculate your Caloric daily needs:
Try eating 15 calories for every 1 pound of body weight.
Here are a few calorie intake calculations for different body weights.
- 100 x 15 = 1500
- 115 x 15 = 1725
- 150 x 15 = 2250
- 175 x 15 = 2625
- 200 x 15 = 3000
- 225 x 15 = 3375
- 250 x 15 = 3750
To put this chart into a better perspective, on average an adult should consume about 2000 calories ~ they add up fast as you can see, leaving little room for nutritious food. If you consume all the drinks on the top of this chart – you consume 1370 calories in drinks alone! No matter what you eat now -you’re maxing on your daily calorie intake!
