(NAPSI)—If you’re like 64 percent of Americans, you drink a
cup of coffee every day.
While many coffee drinkers still prefer their coffee black in its most
natural form, coffee tastes have evolved over the years. Today, the market
offers many caffeinated beverages formulated with sugar and fat that add
calories and can offset the inherent benefits of caffeine, such as alertness
and a feeling of increased energy.
Health-conscious consumers, however, are making dramatic changes to their
diet and choosing food and beverages that not only taste good but offer
nutritional benefits as well. There is an almost endless number of new drink
products that provide more than great taste—they help people reduce
calorie intake and fuel their day. Recently, the coffee category has started
growing with novel alternatives to sugary coffeehouse beverages with healthy
ways to start the day or provide an afternoon pick-me-up.
While people drink coffee throughout the day, they are, increasingly,
seeking something more than a caffeine pick-me-up. Alternatives are available
that are great tasting, low fat, packed with protein and deliver a feeling of
energy all in one. Coffee drinkers who want alternatives to sugary drinks, as
well as something that offers nutritional benefits, are turning to Herbalife
Nutrition High Protein Iced Coffee. It contains two grams of sugar and no
artificial flavors or added colors. The 100-calorie drink mix is big on taste
and provides 15 grams of protein and 80 mg of caffeine per serving.
“Everyone loves the refreshing taste of iced coffee but not the
calories and sugar that come with many coffeehouse options,” said Susan
Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD, CSOWM, FAND, Senior Director of Worldwide Nutrition
Education and Training at Herbalife Nutrition. “Our high-protein iced
coffee is the perfect healthy snack and is a great alternative that can be
enjoyed at home or on the go.”

Gut health is a hot topic as people try to find new ways to keep the body
in balance by consuming foods and beverages that support a healthy digestive
system. Kombucha, vinegar and probiotic-enhanced drinks continue to garner a
lot of interest to support a healthy gut. However, many probiotic drinks are
filled with sugar to counter the taste of yogurt. A healthy, old-fashioned option
to aid digestion is to keep hydrated by drinking a lot of water. Drinking too
little water slows down the digestive system. Perhaps best of all—water
has zero calories.
Obesity rates in the U.S. continue to soar. Fortunately, it can be easy to
cut sugary drinks out of the diet and swap with lower-calorie options.
Instead of hitting the juice bar, consider replacing juice with fruit.
