Sweetened drinks - a culprit in America's obesity epidemic

Americans are drinking themselves fat, say nutritionists. Soda pop and other sweetened drinks account for 10 percent of the calories in the American diet.

(But that doesn't mean that if you cut out sweetened drinks you get to eat more. . . . Well, maybe an extra cookie or two, but let's not push our luck, okay?)

And if you want to take off even more pounds, then why not switch from coffee to green tea?

Replace this with 100 percent calorie-free and 100 percent natural green tea—hot or cold.
