No More Soda For Me

Philippines
May 29, 2019 3:48am CST
I don't like sweets but I drink a lot of sodas lately, and I eat a lot of rice. Too many sweets and carbonated drinks are not healthy. I will start today. I will be loyal to water and water alone. I will no longer eat rice during meals starting in June. I will change my lifestyle for the better. This is day one of "no soda" for me. Do you like drinking soda?

That's what I'm afraid of. Diabetes is a lifelong problem.

I like sweets and drink soda! (Walmart has come out with a new Watermelon soda, a new Peach soda and Apple soda this summer. I like all three.) But I also make myself drink an equal amount of water for every soda I drink. I once took a photo of the top shelf of my closet showing all the different types of candy and snacks I have stored there. Let me see if I can find that picture... YUM!

@rakski I'm doing it for my family too. It's always better to be healthy.

@hexeduser22 I am also trying to be healthy for myself and my family. I need to lose some weight. I infused my water with lemon slices. It is hard at first, but later on that helped me in not drinking soda. After I tasted soda, it tasted too sweet

I don't like fizzy drinks. I prefer ice cream for something cold and sweet.

Oh my God, I envy you, because I’ve been trying to stop drinking sodas for while and my main weakness is Pepsi especially when it get extremely hot outside! I have to have me a good old cold Pepsi and water I’m trying to force myself to drink water! They even had a recall on water one time before; so I don’t know what to do anymore, but most definite water is a better choice!

Ice cold Pepsi in hot weather is definitely tempting. I just drown myself in ice cold water to stop myself from drinking that so tempting ice cold Pepsi in the fridge. lol

It seems your body has a natural way of notifying you if you already had enough
