Don’t Drink Yourself Fat, NYC Warns


Read the label seems to be the theme of the month.  The NYC Department of Health has started a new campaign to increase our awareness of the sugar content in our drinks.

The signature poster of the campaign, which we will be soon seeing in NYC subways, is of a bottle of sugary beverage that, when poured, transforms into human fat.  There is even a bit of fat running over the side of the glass…gross!

NYC is recommending that, instead of colas, sweetened teas and sports drinks, we should be quenching our thirst with good old water, seltzer, or low-fat milk.  The Department of Health also include this helpful table above on its website.
