Love your gin with mixers? Be careful which one you use! We’ve got the 5 worst weight offenders – and how many kilojoules they pack…

Here’s a shocker: 33 percent of our population down carbonated drinks on a daily basis, according to the National Food Consumption Survey. In fact, although no more than five to 10 percent of our daily diet’s energy should come from sugar (around 800kJ), South Africans typically take in 3344kJ per day, says dietician Charlene Giovanelli-Nicolson. Where, exactly,are these kilojoules coming from?

Here are some of the top offenders:

531 kilojoules from sugar in 230ml of orange fizzy drink

635 kilojoules from sugar in 230ml of grape juice

573 kilojoules from sugar in 230ml of cranberry juice

443 kilojoules from sugar in 230ml of lemonade

468 kilojoules from sugar in 230ml of orange juice

 

For a lighter sip, try soda water mixed with a small amount of juice.
