Beware! The market for consumable liquids is fierce and filled with misleading promises. Well-intentioned people can unknowingly consume hundreds of calories and dozens of teaspoons of added sugar or sugar substitute by drinking innocent looking juices and sweetened teas. These products can be nice as special treats for rare occasions, but water should always be your go-to for hydration. How many glasses or bottles of water will you drink today?
