Why AVOID ALL soft drinks

Today's post:  Tuesday, 3-24-2015

Beside all kinds of additives it's best to avoid in soft drinks, the evidence is in over repeated studies.

1.  Regular soft drinks contain high fructose corn syrup which has been found to be both fattening and to cause type 2 diabetes and heart disease.  Worse, it seems ingesting high fructose corn syrup causes you to be hungry for and eat more sugary or starchy foods which at least triples both its fattening effect and the boost it gives your path to heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

2.  Diet soft drinks test as being WORSE than regular soft drinks.  

This has multiple causes.  One study found that even in two rat groups eating the same total calories, those fed artificial sweeteners got fatter.
On top of that, diet soft drink drinkers typically drink about fifty percent more of them a day than regular soft drink drinkers.
And, ingesting the artificial sweeteners is dramatically more effective at causing you to be hungry for and eat more sugary or starchy foods than regular soft drinks.

This is why repeated tests show that drinking diet soft drinks causes you to be fat and get type 2 diabetes MORE than drinking regular soft drinks.  

Worse, diet soft drinkers get significantly fatter bellies than regular soft drinkers!

Conclusion:  So, if you want to avoid being fat with a big belly, avoid BOTH regular and diet soft drinks.  And do it 24 7 -- ALL the time.

People who want to lose fat they keep off and who have stopped ALL soft drinks routinely lose a good bit of fat AND their craving for treats goes away once they get used the situation.

Even better their risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes drops like a rock.

THAT  also will drop their blood test readings of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and excess blood sugar low enough to predict good health.  AND this can enable you to avoid the drugs to do that your doctor might otherwise want you to take!

By stopping drinking heart attack starters every day, you get MORE health protection than the drugs can give you!

This post was prompted by this email from Everyday Health I got recently:

I found it, Brief and convincing and informative:

Quit Your Soda Habit

1.  Americans continue to guzzle extra calories through sugary drinks like soda — which come with many health dangers. 

Soda consumption has been linked to an increased risk for heart disease and diabetes, as well as to rising rates of obesity. 

Research published in 2011 by the University of Bangor and Bristol suggests that drinking soda can actually trigger sweet cravings by dulling your sensitivity to sweet tastes, sparking a vicious cycle of eating sweet foods and drinks. 

“As taste satisfaction levels drop, the more sweet foods are consumed,” Dr. Hans-Peter Kubis from Bangor University’s School of Sport, Health & Exercise Sciences, who led the study, said in a statement.

2.  Diet soda fiends aren't off the hook either: Recent research published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that diet soda intake is directly related to abdominal obesity in adults over the age of 65. 

The increase in waist circumference among diet soda drinkers was three times the amount in non-drinkers. 

Isn't it about time you and your family kicked the soda habit?

[The artificial sweeteners are not safe in the huge amounts diet soft drink drinkers consume.

AND there is evidence they cause even more of the sugary food cravings creation and boosting found for regular soft drinks because the artificial sweeteners are so much sweeter than real sugar!]
