If you drink soda on a regular basis it might be time to consider other options. If a soda is your choice for hydration, you need to make a change. According to the American Beverage Association, the average American drinks an estimated 54 gallons of soda per year. That’s about 19 ounces per day (1.5 cans of soda). The average teenager drinks 31-42 ounces a day.

An average 20oz bottle of soda contains about 250 calories (mostly all sugar). Do the math, 20oz of soda every day will add up to about 91,000 extra calories per year, this equates to 26 pounds of fat. Still thirsty?
