Drinks

I’m not able to drink caffeine or sugar so it’s a pain having to try and find decaff coffee and tea or soft drinks other than water and soda. If I ask for a diet drink in a cafe or restaurant I get offered diet Coca-Cola, ( which contains caffeine) or tonic water that isn’t sugar free.

Look at a bottle of soft drink and it usually has the sugar in grams on it, say its 7.1g. But that’s per 100ml. But often the amount of liquid in the bottle is 250 or 500ml, so you have to multiply up. So 7.1g is 17.8 in a 250ml bottle and a whopping 35.6g in a 500ml bottle. Some have more! That’s lots of spoons of sugar. Why don’t they do more drinks with sweeteners? Then you get energy drinks with glucose. Is it any wonder there is an epidemic of people with diabetes. And guess what? If you drink too many carbonated drinks they can affect your stomach. 

I guess I shall have to stick to water.
