Page 5: Calories

Did you know that 3 Oreos – a serving – is 160 calories, and 60 of those calories come from fat? YIKES! A 12 FL oz bottle of Mountain Dew is 170 calories. But you could have a 16.9 FL oz bottle of water for zero calories. While both quench your thirst, which is healthier? If you choose to eat/drink the healthier thing you will feel better. Mountain Dew might get you really energized for 10 minutes – it’s all the sugar – but then your energy will drop, whereas water is a healthier choice.
