iVillage: The Busy Woman’s Guide to a Better Body

9 of 11

You consider energy drinks a busy girl’s best friend.

Chugging a Red Bull, Monster or Fear will definitely send you soaring. But these so-called energy drinks come loaded with sugar and caffeine. One 8.3-ounce Red Bull has 26 grams of sugar (that’s more than 6 teaspoons!) Meanwhile, a sports drink like Gatorade is no better, with 32 grams of sugar in a single bottle. Once the sugar-and-caffeine buzz wears off, your energy level can come crashing down. Do your body a favor and sip on some belly-fat-busting, antioxidant-rich green tea instead.
