400 Ways to Improve: Soda

3 Comments

There are many reasons why kicking the soda habit is a small change with monumental benefits!

 

Sugar

 

  • Drinking a single 330 ml can of soda each day translates to more than 1lb of weight gain every month
  • Drinking soda stresses your body’s ability to process sugar and contributes to diabetes!
  • One extra soft drink a day gave a child a 60% greater chance of becoming obese

Diet Soda

 

Ingredients in diet soda: Aspartame- illegal in Europe.. Read more about it here:

“The ingredients in aspartame include aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methyl alcohol. Do you remember from high school science that methyl alcohol is poisonous to the body? When methyl alcohol breaks down in high temperatures it turns into formaldehyde and DKP (diketopiprazine). These are two highly toxic chemicals which adversely affect the nervous system.”

Dehydration – 

  • The combination of sugar and caffeine are dehydrating.  Drinking soda actually makes you more thirsty.

 

Teeth – 

  • Soda eats up and dissolves tooth enamel. Researchers say that soft drinks are responsible for doubling or tripling tooth decay by making the teeth weaker and more sensitive.

Soft drinks also contain large quantities of phosphorus, which when excreted pulls calcium out of the bones. Heavy users of soft drinks will have osteoporosis along with their damaged arteries

You don’t need it.

Replace your sodas with water. Try a 10 day trial period.

If you can’t give up soda all together, try replacing them one glass at a time.

Get smaller sizes of your soda regardless of the price difference.

Soda is an addictive drink so you will have to push through the first week!

Good Luck!
