If you are watching your sugar intake, this chart on sugary drinks could prove informative. From Rush Fitness, the infographic 'How Much Sugar is In Your Favorite Drink?' lists a number of beverages along with their sugar content. This is especially relevant if you are focusing on your physical fitness and are particularly concerned with staying hydrated post-workout.

Some of the sugary drinks the infographic covers include energy drinks, sports recovery drinks, vitamin water, iced fruit drinks, orange juice and mixed berry smoothies. In addition to just saying how much sugar is in each of these beverages, it also explains why people consume them to begin with and an example of a food that has the equivalent amount of sugar. For example, squeezed orange juice contains the same amount of sugar as 25 cookies.
