You need to kick that can down the road NOW!
It messes with your skin:
Studies have shown that a regular soda habit has been linked to accelerated aging. If the long-term effects aren’t enough to scare you, diet soda lowers your pH levels, which can cause acne and leave your skin looking dull and tired.
It alters your mood:
It leads to weight gain:
A University of Texas Health Science Center study found that the more diet sodas a person drank, the greater their risk of becoming overweight. Downing just two or more cans a day increased waistlines by 500 percent.
It increases your risk of heart attack:
One University of Miami study found that folks who drank diet soda every day were 44 percent more likely to suffer a heart attack than those who abstained from drinking soda.
It ups your chances of developing diabetes:
People with a daily soda habit (even just one or two per day) were more than 25 percent more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than individuals who had no more than one sugary drink per month.
Here are some healthy benefits to putting down that soda that you might not be aware:
1. Enjoy clearer thinking
2. Food will have more flavor
3. Less risk of diabetes
4. Improved bone strength
5. You’ll crave junk food less
6. Handle booze better (nix it as mixer)
7. Less insulin = less fat stored
8. Better functioning kidneys
Bottom line, if you’re ready to reclaim your health, you need to break your soda addiction. It may seem tough, but it is possible. …you owe it to yourself and your family!
