Are you addicted to soda?

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Are you? I'll admit it, I was addicted to soda. I was a soda junkie. For many years I couldn’t stop at just one Coke, I craved more. Before I knew it I consumed 3 or 4 cans a day!
We all know that soda has no nutritional value, no health benefits and tons of calories and sugar. Each 12oz soda has 140 calories and 39 grams of sugar. If you think about it, drinking 4 cans a day is equal to 560 calories and 156 grams of sugar – that’s more than ½ cup sugar a day! Adding as much as 1 pound to your weight every week.

7 side effects of drinking soda. Limit or eliminate soda from your diet to improve your health and lose weight

Overcoming an addiction to soda is no easy task, but it’s a great starting point if you’re serious about improving your health and getting fit. Start by making small sacrifices, cutting back to just 1 can a day. Then try replacing soda with sparkling water. I added citrus slices or fruit to the water to give it a little flavor. After about 2 weeks you should no longer feel the need or desire to consume soda. Stick with it and you’ll be amazed at how much better you will feel and how much easier it will be to reach your health and fitness goals.

Are you struggling to lose weight no matter how hard you try? Take some time to evaluate what you eat and drink every day. You may think that daily soda doesn’t mean much or indulging on a candy bar or bag of chips to get you through the afternoon is harmless, but think again. Your body is used to it, it craves it, and that little guilty pleasure is preventing you from achieving your goals. Your exercise, your fitness plan, all your hard work was just wasted on erasing your daily addiction. If you’re committed to losing some weight and improving your health, start by making some small sacrifices. Remember, it takes just 21 days to replace a bad habit with a healthy one. Here are some healthy alternatives to help you kick the can to the curb and jump start your diet.
