I do not drink soda. I have never been a huge fan of soda (Pop if you are a Midwesterner). This is great news because more and more information becomes available daily about the adverse affects of soda on your health. Diet soda is no better than the regular full sugar versions. Apparently artificial sweeteners are not good for you either (Stevia may be an exception in its natural form, not the white processed Stevia bought in the grocery stores).
If you are still drinking soda, please re-evaluate that decision. Ditching the soda will result in weight loss and better health, without question. Make the effort, make the decision. You will not regret it. Will you ditch the soda?
