According to recent reports, there are nearly 210 million people in the United States who are currently considered overweight, obese or diabetic. Despite the high numbers reaching almost epidemic proportions, what many still don’t realize is that food intake is not the only culprit. Beverages containing high calories, carbs and sugars contribute significantly to weight gain and poor health.
“It’s no secret that better food and drink choices can lead to a better state of health”
Luckily, there is now a smarter drink option for those looking to cut excess sugar and calories from their diets. Ultra Lo-Gly is a new, certified low-glycemic juice blend beverage that provides a healthier alternative for those looking to cut calories from their daily diets. Unlike regular juice, Ultra Lo-Gly is sweetened with premium fruit juice concentrate, Organic Blue Agave Nectar and Stevia (a natural sweetener from the stevia plant), all of which have naturally low glycemic index ratings (23 and under). This unique blend results in a juice beverage that is lower in sugar and, subsequently, lower in calories than most drinks on the market, particularly colas and fruit juice. The idea behind the development of Ultra Lo-Gly is a back to nature approach, essentially creating a juice blend that is more in line with a fruit and not a juice when it comes to calorie, carb and sugar counts.
“Drinks such as orange juice or regular cola range from 135-170 calories per serving and can contain more than 40 grams of sugar, which is a dangerous combination for those looking to lose weight,” said Maral Barsoumian, president and co-founder of Ultra Lo-Gly. “Ultra Lo-Gly provides a guilt-free option for those looking to enjoy a great tasting, premium juice beverage with low calories, carbs and sugars.”
The good news is that making better choices about your daily drink selections is easy, and these seemingly small changes can dramatically impact your diet. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that simply substituting diet or lower-calorie options for regular beverages can decrease your caloric intake by nearly 650 calories a day.
“It’s no secret that better food and drink choices can lead to a better state of health,” Barsoumian said. “And when you consider that national estimates show obesity-related diseases currently account for roughly $147 billion a year in medical spending, it’s clear that as a nation, we can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to this epidemic. We must begin to make better choices for ourselves and our families.”
Ultra Lo-Gly is now available in four unique and delicious flavors: Pomegranate, Acai-Blue, Pomegranate Mojito and Mango Mojito. It can be purchased online at www.loglystore.com and Amazon.com and will soon be available at national grocery chains.
