How To Save Money On Soft Drinks

If you go out to eat five times per week and get a regular, full calorie fountain soft drink each time, you are consuming about 200 calories in each cup, or 1000 calories per week. (This assumes no refills).

If you do this for fifty weeks of the year, that would add up to about 50,000 calories.

One pound of fat stores about 3500 calories, so this is a little over fourteen pounds of fat added per year, just from soda.

Not to mention that if each soda costs an average of about $1.50, then this costs you $375 per year. A family of four would spend $1,500.

So switching to water could save fourteen pounds per year and several hundred dollars.
