Stop drinking soda - Stop sugar. Almost everybody knows that sugar (refined sugar) is not that healthy. You can get fat and it's not good for your teeth anyway.
It is less known that sugar is addictive, you get tired, it can suppress your immune system, cause digestive problems, can contribute to eczema, cause headache, shed your skin, trigger epileptic seizures, work hormonal disorders and self depression can cause. Yes and so I can go on for a while. It is increasingly commonplace that sugar is actually poison. It is also said that if sugar would now be introduced (with the present knowledge) it would probably be banned for health-threatening reasons. Sugar is added to many products today. I try to remove refined sugar as much as possible from my diet. A very good first step for anyone who wants to quit sugar is in any case, stop drinking soda. That cola contains sugar (no less than 6 lints per glass), which also knows most people. But that made Roosvicee contains 5.5, Fristi 5 and Wicky, Dried Fries and Apple Juice 4 lentils per glass is less well known. Lemon water healthy and delicious. The most misleading drinks I like are drinks like Vifit and, for example, Vitamin Water. On both, it says 'I choose conscious' logo but that does not say much. The amount of sugar is not taken into account when awarding this 'quality mark'.
Vifit is a "natural" dairy and is therefore supposedly healthy, but it also contains about 5 clots of sugar per glass. Vitamin Water is a natural mineral water drink without artificial odor, color and flavors. The vitamins do not come from vegetables or fruit but are added and the second ingredient listed on the label is sugar. Actually, it's just plain sugar water. A bottle contains about 7 sugar cubes. Then you think of the light soft drinks, but this is unfortunately not so wise. Commonly used sweeteners are aspartame, sucralose and saccharin. Research has shown that these substances can affect your kidneys, increase the chance of a heart attack, and cause an unstable blood sugar that makes you want to eat something earlier. In addition, aspartame has more than 90 side effects such as headache, lack of concentration, chronic fatigue, bloating and so much more.
But what can I drink? Drinking water with fruit and spice. The best answer is simple: water. Besides very many sugars, with the above-mentioned side effects, it also causes a lot of calories. Positive effects of drinking water are abundant, some I call here: it gives you energy, reduces the risk of heart and vascular disease (with at least 5 glasses per day) and causes the feeling of hunger (which is often confused with thirst !). Your body needs enough water to work well and also get moisture in through other beverages and your food, but drinking water immediately makes moisture absorption a lot easier. In addition, it is also very cheap. When you feel boring, you can add some lemon or orange to the taste. Whatever is very tasty make a can of water with some mint or basil. The water takes light over the taste, really deliciously refreshing.
Drink further (green) tea, as an added benefit, it also has a slightly stimulating effect on digestion. Even home-made vegetable juices are a healthy and tasty choice. No soda is used to getting used to it, and it can be as difficult to switch. But at one point you do not want to go anymore, and it's nice to be able to drink something, always easy, anywhere. Fruit water.
