Ever wondered what the effects of soda are on your body right away?
I am a soda drinker. I wish I could say I was a recovering soda drinker, but alas, I can’t seem to quit the habit. But that’s really because I never tried 😛
After reading through a quick couple of articles about what the effects of soda can do to your body within MINUTES of consuming, I might have to jump back on the water wagon!
These articles just happened to make their way to me after slugging down a 20 oz soda just last night. Twilight zone worthy coincidence if you ask me 😉
SO, without further adieu…
The Effects of Soda One Hour, Post-Consumption…
10 teaspoons of SUGAR hit your system. This is 100 percent of your recommended daily intake, and the only reason you don’t VOMIT as a result of the overwhelming sweetness is because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor.
Your blood sugar spikes, and your liver responds to the resulting insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into FAT.
Caffeine absorption is complete; your pupils dilate, your blood pressure RISES, and your liver dumps MORE sugar into your bloodstream.
Your body increases dopamine production, which stimulates the pleasure centers of your brain – a physically identical response to that of HEROIN by the way.
You’ll start to have a sugar crash. Enjoy.
AND HERE ARE SOME OTHER SHOCKING FACTS FOR YOU ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF SODA . . .
ONE SODA PER DAY INCREASES YOUR RISK OF DIABETES BY 85%!
SUGAR IS ACTUALLY MORE ADDICTIVE THAN COCAINE!
JUST ONE EXTRA CAN OF SODA PER DAY CAN ADD AS MUCH AS 15 POUNDS TO YOUR WEIGHT OVER THE COURSE OF A SINGLE YEAR! (NOT HOW TO LOOK BETTER NAKED!)
The effects of soda can be reduced, and it’s really not as hard as we make it on ourselves!
If you are still drinking soda, stopping the habit is an easy way to improve your health.
Water is a much better choice, or if you must drink a carbonated beverage, try sparkling mineral water with a squirt of lime or lemon. I personally LOVE the La Croix waters!
Switching from sodas to waters is also a great way to lose weight and feel better! (Here are a few other ways!)
As a side note : There is no reason that children should drink soda. None, nada, zip, zero. NO EXCUSES. You don’t want them experiencing the effects of soda, right?
The elimination of soda is a no-brainer for me now!
