Another can of pop instead of water.

What’s incredible is that the average American is drinking about 45 gallons of pop every year. In total that is 375 pounds of pop that pass through your system in 365 days.

Even crazier is the sugar. 45 gallons of pop totals roughly 470 cans in one calendar year.

Ready for it…


Our bodies consume 20 pounds of sugar in one year.
