Bad news, Soda
Like many of you, I like to read some news articles that pop up on Google or Yahoo or whatever webpage I happen to be on. This article on soda happened to catch my eye:
Pretty much everything I read about soda scares me. Regular, diet, it all seems terrible for you. Which is upsetting because I have consumed A LOT in my life. I may only be 24, but I used to guzzle that stuff down like crazy. I switched to diet a few years ago, which cut out the sugar, but added in crazy chemicals. To be honest, although they're both awful for your health, diet soda actually scares me more. Here's some interesting articles about it:
And here's a little bit about sugar/sweeteners in general:
I'll admit it, though... I have 2 two liter bottles of soda in my refrigerator right now. I caved and bought them a couple weeks ago. Sometimes, I honestly just get so tired of water. But. I said I bought them two weeks ago. They're still there. I drank some of my Sprite Zero... and felt awful for the rest of the day. Truly and terrifyingly awful. I was sluggish and tired. I went to the gym and could hardly do 1/2 of what I usually do. So. Yes, it's there. It's almost a reminder now. Drink me and feel like crap. Drink water and yes, you may be bored, but dammit, you'll have energy.
