Sugary Drink Can

How far do you have to run to burn off sugary drinks?

How far do you have to run to burn off sugary drinks?

With 16 teaspoons of sugar in just one regular 600ml bottle of soft drink, you’d have to run a staggering 3km to burn it off. If you’re having a 600ml bottle a day, you’d have to run almost half a marathon each week just to burn off your soft drink habit! Can’t run that far? All of that extra sugar can lead to weight gain and obesity, increasing your risk of disease. It can also lead to tooth decay. Luckily there is an alternative: water. It’s natural, free, refreshing and 100% good for you.

So instead of grabbing a soft drink, why not try water, reduced-fat milk or unsweetened drinks instead?
