More thoughts on the badness of Soda Pop
I drink at Least 2-3 a day. Not even diet ones, real
Cokes or Pepsi or Dr Pepper. I'm convinced that i'm
addicted. I'll even make an extra stop on the way home,
to pick up some soda for dinner. Water? please...why drink
water when Soda tastes so good? I notice I eat more too
and enjoy dinner more when I have soda.
But The more i've been researching on the internet and the
more i've been noticing that I'm not feeling as good as I should
be inside...I'm realizing that SODA is NOT GOOD for you, Not
even in Moderation. Even the caffiene causes increases in
stomach acids causing ulcers i've read. Could that be why
i've been experiencing stomach pains lately?
Sodium Benzoate, the phosphoric acids, i mean even the fact
that Benzene may be produced from the chemicals in most sodas
(i'm no scientist) is enough now to make me think twice
about drinking it, no matter what headaches are coming my
way from stopping.
Again, I've been suffering lately from stomach pains. I feel groggy
a lot of the time. I don't sleep the greatest, if I do, i sleep really
hard and wake up feeling horrible, headache, etc. I rarely ever
wake up feeling refreshed and alive. I feel like a zombie every
Anyway, among other things, I'm officially ending my consumption
of carbonated beverages with chemicals and high amounts
of acidity. I'm not drinking Soda anymore, that's it. even beer,
forget it. I want to live clean.
I'm also going to cut my coffee intake. never drank it for years
until 2 years ago. Now I drink it everyday, strong coffee too.
I'm Only going to indulge on the weekends, I don't need it everyday
I want to feel good. I used to believe in the "everything in moderation"
kinda belief. But I think we as people abuse it too much, I know
that I do. So you end up never cutting out the bad stuff...then
if you're an addictive person like me, you gradually add more and more
and eat or drink it more often and more often til ultimately, i'm
eating and drinking too much of it. Then the "moderation" factor
has gone completely out the window.
Anyway, this won't work for everyone, i'm mainly just venting....
