Sugary drinks are the most significant contributor of added sugar in Australians’ diets. The average Australian soft drink consumer downs the equivalent of one 375mL can a day – that’s 14.6kg of sugar a year! Too many sugar-sweetened beverages is associated with weight gain and obesity, which can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.
Your success stories will help spread the word to others about how cutting out sugary drinks can make you feel better and improve your health.
