    Is Snapple really all that bad for you?

    It has a lot of sugar and stuff, and I drink a lot of it (a few liters per day). Is it really that bad for me?

    YES .... IMO there is no reason to have a sugar drink like that. If you have many litres a day then switch over to the diet snapple. I think some of the diet snapple flavors are just as good if not better than the regular flavors. Water of course is the best thing for you to be drinking, but if you need to get a little flavor and change it up go for crystal light, diet soda(even though i've been cutting that out too). Just read the back carefully to see how many calories are in it and the sodium content, because it can add up if you drink a lot anything.

    Good Luck!

    I'm 6'3" and 155lb, calories aren't my problem. It's just that I am worried that it is generally unhealthy to have so much sugar.

    well of course too much of any sugar makes your pancreas work harder I dont think that is good ..also signals for more insulin which of course makes you fatter.

    Every time you drink a big bottle of that **** your pancreas releases insulin as if you just worked out - except you didn't do **** all so it's kinda like putting your car into neutral and revving the engine in your drive way. It's hard on your pancreas and it's making your body work hard for no reason.

    You shouldn't be drinking Snapple to fill your caloric needs. Get more calories through a nutritious diet.

    yeah like he said above me.... empty calories arent helping you bulk at all. You think you can build muscle by eating jolly ranchers all day???

    I'd say cut it and if you HAVE to have something with taste then drink some lemon water or crystal light.

    i think most importantly that you should take a look at the sugar content b/c obv. sugar makes fat...and you don't want that of course. Simply said just stick to Diet Snapple if you love the stuff so much, don't worry you'll acquire the taste and get away from the sugary stuff.

    I would definitely switch 2 sugar-free soft drinks like diet Snapple or Crystal Light or even diet pop, and make up the calories with real clean foods.

    I've also read about (on the internet -- so it must be true) how High Fructose Corn Syrup is processed by your body different and it basically promotes fat storage.

    I don't remember the details and I don't really have time to find them right this moment, but I'm hoping someone else will chime in with a more in-depth explanation. Or maybe about how wrong I am!

    correct your body can process natural sugar without storing too much fat but high fructose corn syrup might as well be called lard

    stop drinking snapple or get diabetes....tough call



    Until the 1970s most of the sugar we ate came from sucrose derived from sugar beets or sugar cane. Then sugar from corn--corn syrup, fructose, dextrose, dextrine and especially high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)--began to gain popularity as a sweetener because it was much less expensive to produce. High fructose corn syrup can be manipulated to contain equal amounts of fructose and glucose, or up to 80 percent fructose and 20 percent glucose.2 Thus, with almost twice the fructose, HFCS delivers a double danger compared to sugar.

    (With regards to fruit, the ratio is usually 50 percent glucose and 50 percent fructose, but most commercial fruit juices have HFCS added. Fruit contains fiber which slows down the metabolism of fructose and other sugars, but the fructose in HFCS is absorbed very quickly.)

    In 1980 the average person ate 39 pounds of fructose and 84 pounds of sucrose. In 1994 the average person ate 66 pounds of sucrose and 83 pounds of fructose, providing 19 percent of total caloric energy.3 Today approximately 25 percent of our average caloric intake comes from sugars, with the larger fraction as fructose.4

    High fructose corn syrup is extremely soluble and mixes well in many foods. It is cheap to produce, sweet and easy to store. It?s used in everything from bread to pasta sauces to bacon to beer as well as in "health products" like protein bars and "natural" sodas.

    Incorrect. Most HFCS used in prepared foods/drinks has a similar fructose/glucose ratio as sucrose, and has no different physiological consequences. There is hard data to back this up. All the data that HFCS paranoia people cite was research done on PURE fructose (and lots of it)- HFCS is NOT pure fructose.
    No sir, I don't like it.
