Our expert says:
Just at the moment, I do not have an example of the Lucozade product available, but according to the Internet, a standard 500 ml bottle of Lucozade contains 21 teaspoons of sugar (thus 21 x 81 kJ = 1700 kJ)/ If you have 250 ml or half a bottle every morning, this would add 850 kJ to your daily energy intake. 850 kJ represents 13,5% of the recommended daily energy intake for an adult woman who is trying to lose weight, or 10,1% of the energy intake of an adult woman who is not on a slimming regimen. Over time this type of energy intake could cause weight gain. Most energy or sports drinks are designed to provide individuals who do strenuous exercise with an energy boost to sustain their performance. If you do regular and strenuous daily exercise, then having half a Lucozade will not contribute as much to weight gain, as when you don't exercise.
