Today is your chance to make up a missed WOD…
We all know that drinking soda isn’t good for us. We know that it would be better for our health if instead we drank [insert pretty much any other beverage choice here]. But there’s just something about soda that keeps drawing us back. Whether you call it “soda,” “pop,” “soda pop,” “Coke,” or something else entirely, it’s a good idea to stop drinking it once and for all. Here’s why:
Health Reasons to Stop Drinking Soda
Here are just a few of the scientifically researched reasons to kick the habit.
If you drink diet soda, your pop has some sort of artificial sweetener. If you drink full-calorie soda, chances are it has high fructose corn syrup. There are long debates about these ingredients and studies are not entirely conclusive, but both ingredients are artificial and are likely not good for you.
Financial Reasons to Stop Drinking Soda
Don’t count yourselves out my soda lovin’ Mamas! You can do this and you will get HUGE rewards by making this change! Just one soda a day equals 20 lbs of fat a year!…..And, I heard the nutritionist for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders tell them that carbonation causes cellulite!! AHHH!! I am not saying that is true….but just the thought is reason enough for me right there!! Soda has a huge amount of sugar and your body will not burn your stored fat until it burns through all that sugar you are drinking! The less soda you drink, the less you will crave it. I can attest to that!
