My Opinion on Soda

Approximately 70% of us walk around each day dehydrated.  That slows down your metabolism and when combined with poor eating and overeating, contributes to you gaining weight.  My article shares today have talked about the health benefits of drinking water and the dangers of drinking soda.

I read this morning that a can of Coca-Cola has 9 1/3 teaspoons of sugar.  Stop and imagine that for a moment.  9 1/3 teaspoons of sugar in a 12 oz glass fills approximately 20% of the glass.  That is a lot of sugar; more than you should consume in an entire day!  And it is the sugar in soda that will eventually catch up and overwhelm your health.  Each person in America will ingest over 10 pounds of sugar each year from Coca-Cola products alone!

I have talked about how we used soda in the golf business to clean copper and tractor engines, but there are more uses for this great industrial cleaning product!


I like a cool, refreshing fountain soda once in a while, after all, I take a moderate approach to life.  But there are many of my readers that consume soda as they should water and that is not only unsafe, but a deadly habit.

Are you aware that the current CEO of Coke does not allow himself to drink more than one of his soda products each day, and often goes days without drinking?  The reason: too much sugar!

Do some research on what you are putting in your body.  Not only is the soda causing you to be more dehydrated, but it is causing serious health issues due to elevated levels of sugar in your body.

Water is the answer.  Learn to drink it.

Just a thought on a Thursday!

  1. me and my friend were speaking of the same topic this morning, totally agree soda is bad bad bad and like yourself I do have an occasional one but most part drink water is my go to source

  2. My friend and I were speaking of thus subject this morning, totally agree soda is bad, bad, bad, and like some I’ll have an occasional one now and then, but my go to source is water

  3. I have given up soda. I might drink the occasional root beer or Pepsi on a special day or something, but I’ve switched to water with the occasional hint of lemon and/or lime juice. Besides cutting my sugar intake, my skin is looking much nicer and softer. Drinking water has a lot of health benefits.

    1. Thank you so much for posting your experience. If more people, especially ladies, knew how hydration changes the skin they would switch immediately!

  4. I haven’t had a soda in year’s…..I truly don’t miss it at all. More importantly my children don’t miss it. They don’t even ask for it. They now love water more than ever!

  5. I used to be addicted to Mt Dew. Drank 3-4 cans per day. Sometimes more. Terrible habit. Ditching that was my first step toward better health! Sometimes I feel guilty for the two teaspoons of sugar in each cup of coffee, but then I remember how far I’ve come from my soda-drinking days and I give myself a break. Sometimes goals require baby steps.

    1. Goals require baby steps every single time! I am glad to read your comment as it reminds me of how hard we can be on ourselves at times! You should be proud of kicking the soda habit and celebrate only have 2 teaspoons of sugar in your coffee! All things in moderation…

      1. Not that they’re better for you than regular soda but I believe A&W root beer and Sprite are two that don’t have it. I’m sure there are others.
