The evils of soda

I think sodas must be one of mankind’s worst inventions ever. They are chemically engineered and full of sugar and caffeine.

Diet sodas are just as bad if not worse due to the artificial sweeteners. The sweet taste actually tricks the body into thinking it is getting sugar and it reacts by secreting insulin as it would with real sugar, despite the absence of calories and real sugar. This is one of the reasons studies are starting to link consumption of diet sodas to obesity.

A trick to reducing soda consumption could be to try drinking 1 glass of water BEFORE the soda and see if this removes the craving.

And if you still need convincing, take a look at this visual – pretty scary!
