Food quiz


How many teaspoons of sugar does the average can of soda contain?

The average 12-ounce can of regular soda supplies about 150 calories and 40 grams of carbohydrate—the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. Replace your soda with herbal iced tea or seltzer water with just a splash of cranberry juice: Both drinks are low in calories and carbs but still refreshing and tasty.

Be sure to talk to your doctor about the right diet for you.
