"It is possible to die from eating. But I think to be professional means you don't die." (Takeru Kobayashi)

The waist-watching folks over at the Diet Blog have compiled a listing of the seven most sugar filled drinks. Lots of orange sodas and energy drinks although number two might (or might not) surprise you. Fruit juices are supposed to be "healthy" right? While you're there, check out Quito's comment (fourth from the top) about Starbucks. That's why I'm a coffee with two pinks kind of guy.

Personally the only liquid calories I consume are from beer and the 5 or 10 calories in the average cup of coffee. Plus a little in the skim milk I use on my cereal. Cutting empty calories by switching to diet sodas, iced teas, and other artificially sweetened drinks is a good way to save calories for when it matters most (like eating contests!). How do you think Skinnyboy is able to live up to his nickname? Well, that and spending several hours a week in a gym. I'll start with the Diet Mountain Dew.

I started drinking diet decaffinated water. They use a natural process to remove the caffeine, so it is healtier now. Plus with the artificial flavoring, there is zero calories, compared to those other waters. It is made from water, so it tastes like water.

Also, you can cut down on those drinking calories by switching to Bacardi or JD and diet soda. I think it is 40 calories a drink, zero carbs, zero sugars.
