Hehe, I almost titled this "Cut Out Pop"
Must be the north coming out in me =P
Anywho...my husband is a soda junky. Or energy drinks....
rot your teeth
discolor your teeth
give you high blood pressure
make you fat
don't fill you up (like water would)
make you gassy ;)
Okay, here's the bottom line: If you wouldn't give a 2 year-old any soda, why would it make sense to drink it yourself? It's not like our systems are any different from a small child's.
(Okay, it's different with honey and small babies. That causes botulism)
I guess I was never really huge on soda. I'll grab one once every now and then, maybe at get-togethers. But all-in-all, I go almost every day without one.
If you're not a big water fan, try these to put in your water. They are small enough to pop in your purse, just in case you want to make a healthy decision today ;)
Propel. This stuff is yummy! It kind of makes water taste like Gatorade.
Crystal Light is great when you have a craving. The tartness helps me sooo much! It tastes like lemonade. You can also get the pink lemonade.
Now, I know what you're thinking..."Why not just buy Gatorade or lemonade?"
The packets are healthier. Just trust me on this one.
