During the summer of 2013 I tried drinking less soda, focusing on water bottles and Just Dance upstairs everyday. Back in 2009 when I had made this goal, I might have been wanting to do this only because I knew soda damaged your teeth and your body and wanted to kick the habit. During that summertime health kick fever I had, I barely touched soda. I only had it when I was at a friend’s house or at a restaurant or fast food place.
I have started to drink soda regularly again at VCU. I only have it when I’m eating food, but when I’m in the dorm, I’ll just drink the water bottles I have lying around.
So in conclusion, I have been drinking less soda, and I deem this goal reached. 3 days ago
do research on all the bad things that soda does to you, proper research, how it affects your body and brain. put me off drinking soda for a long time 4 weeks ago
I’m going to consider this done for now because I don’t drink pop that often these days. 1 month ago
Drinking less soda is something I originally undertook to help lose weight. It’s remarkable how much cutting out this ONE thing can assist your health and weight loss goals.
The truth is I also cut out most sugary beverages, like juice and did not accept artificial sweeteners. The way I approached it is to simply drink WATER whenever I was thirsty. It’s hardest for the first few days, but over the course of a week or two it gets easier and easier.
I’ll still cheat once ever few months for a special occasion like a movie theatre visit or something.. but the truth is? Once you’ve given up pop and other sweet drinks (juices!) you start to realize just how desensitized you’d become to the sweetness. That first sip is always amazing when it stimulates the pleasure centres of the brain, but after that you realize it’s a fake chemical love. The pop really isn’t all that great, and living healthy with clean water will always feel better! 2 months ago
