If you broke down everything you drink in a day would it look like the pitcher above? Most of us have a beverage that is taking up far too much percentage of our daily beverage intake. January being National Hot Tea Month and the time of year for resolutions, evaluating your beverage intake can be beneficial to your health. Read details about this Daily Healthy Beverage Guideline provided by The Tea Association of the USA below.
The proposed Healthy Beverage Guidelines were created by a panel of nutrition experts to help Americans make smart beverage choices. According to these proposed Guidelines, women should drink 9 eight-ounce servings of beverages each day and men should drink 13. To make the most of your daily beverage allotment, choose beverages from the different levels in the pitcher. Remember that beverages should not make up more than 10-15 percent of your total daily calories and that you should limit caffeine consumption to 400 milligrams per day. Contrary to popular belief, studies prove that caffeine consumption in moderation is NOT dehydrating. Based on the proposed Guidelines, you should choose most of your beverages from the bottom levels of the pitcher and consume the beverages in the upper levels in moderation. Each beverage is ranked form bottom to top by its average calories, nutrient content and potential health benefits.SRC: Find TeaUSA's The Daily Healthy Beverage Guidelines at: www.teausa.com/14710/daily-beverage-guidelines
