Mindful Eating/Drinking Topic: Sugar Overload with Hot Drinks

We all know (or at least should know) that too much sugar is bad for you, but it can be easy to overlook the sugar content in certain foods and drinks. According to CNN, Starbucks drinks, which contain up to 25 teaspoons of sugar per serving, are such consumable products to look out for. This means that people who drink Starbucks coffee every morning consume more sugar daily than deemed healthy by the American Heart Association and can suffer adverse short-term and long-term effects on their bodies.

  1. A short term effect of drinking at lot of sugary drink could be feeling soughs the rest of the day, a long term effect could be weight gain

  2. This article (as well as the video on the same page) does a fine job of presenting the dangers of negligent eating habits. I personally never drink beverages like the ones discussed in the article, but I am also very careful when it comes to my sugar intake in general. I especially avoid foods with added, refined sugar, which is more difficult for the body to process. Since I started being so cautious I have noticed significant improvement in my energy levels as well as all different aspects of my health.
