Drink More Diet Soda, Gain More Weight

I read this diet soda article online and thought others would find it interesting. They now say that diet soda could be causing some obesity or overweight problems. It can be for a number of reasons, either you think, “Well, I’m drinking diet soda, so I can have those McDonald’s Frnch fries,” or maybe you are tricking your body into thinking it is getting something sweet and your body screems back for more of the calories it thought it was getting… don’t know. But sugar is addicting and once you get a taste, your body screams for more… maybe the “sweet with no calories” does the same. I do know that no soda is good for you. The debate on soda goes way back and there have been many discussions… It is also true that caffeine-rich sodas deplete calcium from your bones (this goes for coffee too (unless decalf), so take your calcium supplements – you should get 1000 mg a day, especially women!)! And did you know that Coca Cola can dissolve a tooth placed in a cup of it in 2 days! Yeah, it can supposedly also remove rust! Yum, that’s what I want to be drinking. The only sure thing is to not drink it! Save it for those special occasions, a Friday night with pizza and a movie, or trips to the movies with popcorn. Don’t drink it as your every day drink. I am working on David with this one. He drinks a lot of soda and I barely touch it. I read the article to him over the phone, so maybe something will change.

Read the article.

    Wow-drink green tea.
    There are four primary polyphenols in green tea and they are often collectively referred to as catechins.

    Powerful antioxidants, catechins have been shown in recent studies to fight viruses, slow aging, and have a beneficial effect on health. Clinical tests have shown that catechins destroy free radicals and have far-reaching positive effects on the entire body.

    Free radicals are highly reactive molecules and fragments of molecules that can damage the body at the cellular level leaving the body susceptible to cancer, heart disease, and many other degenerative diseases.

    Green tea antioxidants have been shown to lower cholesterol.
