Exclamation Is Soda our enemy?

This was a fascinating article about soda and diet soda. Look at the last page and see what they say about diet drinks. Scary!!!

I know the carbonation will tear the heck out of your stomach. I have been a Pepsiholic on and off for years and gave it up for a whole year once then slipped back into it. I am now off again and waiting for the withdrawal bomb to fall.

LOL I have been "blasted" on here for saying pretty much that same thing that the article says, especially about diet sodas. I stand by my comments!

So the carbonation issue would apply to sparkling water, club soda and the like as well, I guess. Whenever I get a craving for something fizzy, I drink one of those over soda. I figure it's still not as good as plain water, but not as bad as diet soda.

Sodas, diet or regular KILL my kidneys! I can sneak in about 2 "meals" worth in a three week period. I usually drink 2 - 3 glasses at a time when I do, and its usually when I'm out to eat.

Dr. Pepper is like nicotine to me, I crave it, think about it, try to talk myself into and out of it multiple times a day, and then usually give in and indulge - and then pay for it all during the night when my kidneys won't let me sleep.

I try to go without, because one is all it takes and I'm obsessed again!

soda pop is nothing more than a sugar-delivery device. Or, if you prefer the diet version, a fake-sugar delivery device. It has no food value whatsoever and has recently been linked by studies to osteoporosis in young adults - who spent their childhood drinking pop instead of water.

I think it's nasty.

Sunny, what's this about a fat flush? I've never heard of anything like that, that wasn't an awful scam and bad for your health. Avoid them, please!

Here's some links on soda from the Lean Plate Club, which was talking about this too:

Close Link between soda consumption and obesity

See how your soda ranks in the Beverage Guidance System

Thankfully, part of my over all health plan included giving up caffiene. My pot of coffee in the morning is gone completely and I have one diet coke with lunch (caffiene) and a diet root beer for dinner (decaff) typically. I still find that I have a serious withdrawal headache if I miss that one at lunch. But this is a great improvement from my pre-lifestyle change regime!!

Well, here is my deal with soft drinks and obesity etc. I think everything in moderation is FINE! I mean if you eat or drink too much of anything its going to be bad for you. Drink water and a soda every now and then, not a 6-pack a day. I also think its pretty unfair to say that the cause of obesity is soft drinks. Clearly obese people arent living a healthy lifestyle and they are not eating right and exercising and that contributes to their obesity. Moderation in all aspects of life......dont blame it on one product just live healthier life.

Well, the Fat Flush Plan by Ann Louise Gittleman is a healthy way to eat - not a scam and most definitely NOT bad for your health (How can a diet which emphasizes fresh whole veggies, some low glycemic fruit, lovely omegas/healthy fat in the form of Flaxseed oil, and lean protein be bad for your health?)

Fat Flush is a 3 phase plan, predates South Beach by a year or so and is the sanest plan out there (trust me here - I've tried most of them before stumbling on Fat Flush ). I reached goal in just over 6 months and have been in maintenance (Phase 3) for about 3 years. Hard to argue with that kind of success.
