Are any of you out there like me and love their soda both diet and non-diet? Everyday I have a glass of diet pepsi with lunch then usually in the mid afternoon when the 3:00 energy slump hits I have a glass of sprite mixed with water. I tell myself drinking a regular soft drink with water makes it not so bad for me but deep down I know better.
For 5 or 6 years I had regular soda kicked to the curb then in 2003 while I was working out of my house I started having a little afternoon pick me up with you guessed it regular soda for the sugar hit and to help alleviate the boredom of the job now I don't do that job anymore but....I still have my afternoon soda.
Last week I saw the Dr. Oz show about soda addiction and I am trying his plan to see if I can get soda back out of my life again or at least way down. I know it has empty calories and it raises your odds of getting pancreatic cancer by at least 20%. Yet it is still soooooooo hard to do.
I have already cut way down on the amount I drink plus now I measure it out so I know the calorie load. Yesterday, I tried the selzer water mixed with sugar free cranberry juice boy was it tart tasting...but I got through will see what today brings.
This morning I went out to my park and slogged through 12 laps in the humidty came home and did The Shred so I am working out hard this week so far.
I would love to hear your thoughts on how you break this habit and what to put in its place or how you kicked soda to the curb..
