sugar

I know there's a lot of sugar in normal soda drinks, a reason for me to stick to the 'light' variety. Just how much sugar there's in a can of soda is surprising shocking! The video below shows you the gory details.

Moral of the story? If you want to loose some weight, don't drink normal sodas but go for light.

BTW, I found this video on a science video search engine called ScienceHack. Well worth going there every now and then for a shot of science.

In the US sugar made of corn (Mais) is used, this is very unhealthy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_fructose_corn_syrup)
The reason: subsidies on growing corn and hight taxes on imported sugar made from cane (ie foreign stuff)

Over the weekend I bought one of these 'healthy' green tea drinks, still 14 grams of sugar per 50cl. Drinking water is healthier and you can fill a bottle of tapwater and put it in the fridge. Practically the same quality for a fraction of the cost of buying bottled water (at 2 euro a bottle of 50 cl at your local vending machine)

Add a squeeze of lemon or lime for that refreshing taste...
