I drank a lot of soft drinks last Saturday and during the night I find it hard to go to sleep. I think it had something to do with consuming too much soft drinks. Bad for me. Drinking too much soft drinks is really bad for your health and also for your figure! I try to stay away or avoid drinking soft drinks whenever I can. But if there is no choice at all, like in the restaurant, rather than drinking tap water I would settle for a soft drink. There are other many health implications from drinking much soft drinks. But people love drinking it. How about you, how much soft drinks do you consume a day?

It's because soft drinks are high in sugar resulting to hyperactivity. I'm pregnant right now so I'm not allowed any carbonated drinks. But I used to consume a minimum of 500ml per day. It's really addictive especially after meals.

500ml is half liter of soft drinks.maybe you can exchange in fruit juice.Long term soft drink may cause diabeters.

Soft drinks like coke contained caffeine, that's why you find it difficult to sleep after that. I do not drink soft drinks much, maybe once every few months as I am concerned about the sugar content. I prefer to drink fruit juice which is equally delicious and defnitely more healthy.

Yes that's more likely the case, aside from eating too much for dinner. :)

Maybe you need to take digestive juice rather than soft drinks

I have recently stopped drinking soft drinks for the sole purpose of my waking up not having a bad tummy. I would really like to stop drinking too much because I am feeling the effects of not being healthy. I have not been feeling well lately and so I started drinking water instead. Indeed soft drinks are not good for us even if we enjoy it so much.

Good for you! Water is the best to make our body healthy. People enjoy it so much and the only one benefiting from it are the manufacturers and distributors of these soft drinks.

Oh dear my boyfriend is addicted to soft drinks and refers to the as Cola, He starts out his day immediately with a big gulp which basically is a Cola of 32 oz size. He can drink anywhere between 3 or four a day and yet has the gull to say he is not addicted. We can purchase 24 can pack and it will be gone in two days, I continue to remind him that this is not healthy but he won't listen. Everywhere and anywhere we go there he is with his Cola in hand. It is not only not good for your health is can damage your teeth. Hopefully one day he and you both will take the Cola drinking a bit slower.

I'm not a cola or soft drink addict like your boyfriend. It's just a one day occasion that I have drank too much... :) Not only does it damage your teeth but most importantly your stomach since it is acidic. You would also be prone to diabetes because of too much sugar consumption.

Hi, Talking about soft drinks, I have not been drinking soft drinks for quite some time. It is not my favourite drinks and I hardly have it unless, I was outside and super thirsty,then I will buy a can to drink. It is not good to drink soft drink too often.It contains lot of gas and will make our stomach feels bloated. I seldom give my son drink soft drink too.

It's good to control the intake of soft drinks for kids, besides the effect on their health, i.e, high sugar content, it could harm their teeth too.

I used to drinks lots of softdrinks before, but it's bad for the health. I stop buying, and change to drinking juices. I really don't like drinking water. But once in a while I do. I always want my drinks a little sweet. So I just add up many ice cubes to add up the water content of my drinks.

I dont really drink plenty of soft drinks in a day. One glass is enough for me if I have to drink it. If I drink something with caffeine in it, I also cant sleep well at night. Anyway, if i drink some soft drinks, I make sure I drink water afterward cause I would also have trouble urinating if I dont.

I think the gas in soft cans bloated your stomach.Beside that i think there is overload of sugar and also caffeine often found in these drinks. The gasses can cause acid reflux in your stomach causing discomfort and hard to sleep too.BEside that i think long term soft drinker can cause diabeters.For me i i drink fewer than 7 cans per week.Usually take it when i have body pain or headache.Sometime coke,pepsi or 100Plus isotonic drink.

Softdrinks has caffeine thats why you had a bad time sleeping. I drink softdrinks twice or thrice a week, I usually have one glass. Softdrinks is very tempting specially when you are eating salty snacks or felt dry because of the hot weather.

Ya, soft drinks are not good for our health. I don't consumed it everyday, just once a week. mineral water is the best drink, cos it cheap and healthy.

Yes drinking soft drink at night can't sleep proper. You think you have insomnia. I drink soft drink 4 times a week. It depends of what food i eat. Sometimes i drank 500ml of coke in just 1 meal. But i will drink lots of water so that i don't get diabetes.

1 or 2, but always Diet Coke, and nothing sugary. I could easily drink more too, but I try to avoid drinking too much since I know it is not really good for me. But I love it so much!

Drinking soft drinks is not good for the health.people who use to drink soft drinks a lot is prone to suffer from urinary tract infections or UTI. It is because soft drinks provides more acids that is not good for the body. People like to drink these process liquids because it has some addictive substance that could keep individual feels thirsty for the flavor it has. It is better to drink pure safe water if you want to have a good health.
