Daily Tip

(me drinking water over soda! hahaha...)

No More Soda!!!

Soft drinks are directly related to weight gain. Anything that promotes weight gain can increase the risk of certain illness such as diabetes, kidney damage, weakened bones, lack of energy, dental erosion and much, MUCH more...Not to mention the fact that soda is a complete waste of your daily calories---often referred to as "empty" calories.

What are some tips for cutting back???

  • Keep a jug of water in the refrigerator at all times. When water is cold and easily accessible it makes drinking it more pleasurable.
  • Squeeze fresh lemon or lime in your water to add a little flavor.
  • Don't keep soda in the house! If it's not there, you can't drink it! :-)
  • Keep water bottles ready and easy for grab-n-go.

Give yourself a few days and you'll find that the craving for soda wont be near as bad as you once thought. Soda contains tons of sugar and caffeine...which can become addictive. If you experience headaches or certain withdrawals it may be best to slowly wean yourself off the soda by simply cutting back on your intake until you finally cut it out of your diet completely.
