So winters almost over and we’ve all let ourselves over-indulge which means that diet season is upon us. Yes, that dreadful time when people watch their friends stuff themselves and pretend to be satisfied with a salad.

There’s no better way to start a good diet then by being properly informed and one of the biggest mistakes that dieting people make is that they cut their food portions but drink themselves into a calories frenzy.

Thats why I was thrilled to find this article by ‘Eat This Not That‘ a popular book series that helps people make healthy choices by telling them what foods to avoid as well as the healthy counterpart to help them lose weight.

So here are the some of the worst drinks with information including the calorie and count as well as the sugar equivalent to that drink which helps put things into perspective. Some of these drinks are over 2,000 calories!
