Calorie count - sodas and energy drinks

It is easy to have a few servings of soda or energy drinks a day without thinking about it. Like other sweetened drinks, the calories from these drinks can add up quickly. Most provide little or no nutrients and contain large amounts of added sugar. Soda and energy drinks can also have large amounts of caffeine and other stimulants, so it is best to limit how much you drink.

Here is a list of some popular sodas and energy drinks, their serving sizes, and the number of calories in each.
