Good News!

Some prominent nutrition experts put out new guidelines Wednesday urging Americans to cut back on calorie-rich sodas while allowing more leeway for alcohol and lots of room for tea and coffee -- up to 40 ounces a day. That's more than three tall cups at Starbucks, although that might bust suggested limits on caffeine. They also allow men three times as much beer as sugary soda. - MSNBC

I'm way ahead of these people! I hate soda, but I'm all for allowing more leeway for alcohol and coffee in my diet. And I like iced tea, especially in the summer. I'm from the north and it took a bit of getting used to the idea of drinking iced tea all year round.

Unfortunately the article goes on to say the guideline on alcohol are as follows: "Alcoholic beverages, one drink a day for women and two for men. A drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, 1.5 ounces spirits." Excuse me, I thought the tag line on the article was more leeway! Typical media- misleading!
