Calories Lurk in Popular Beverages

One 16-ounce can of Rockstar Energy Drink contains the same amount of sugar as half a dozen Krispy Kreme Original Glazed donuts.

Energy drinks aren't the only culprits. The calorie and sugar content of flavored water and even juice often surprises people. Snapple Agave Melon Antioxidant Water, for example, has the equivalent sugar of two Good Humor Chocolate Eclair Bars.

ABC News reports:

“While experts say sugary beverages have a large impact on unhealthy diets that put people at risk for diabetes, it also may be the easiest change to make. ‘I would say 80 percent of the success we have in changing diets is taking away these sugar drinks,’ said Dr. Joel Zonszein, professor of Clinical Medicine”.
