Do we get too much sugar when we drink soda?

    Yes, soda has way to much sugar in it. In one can of soday there are 40 grams of sugar. That is like adding 10 sugar packets to a cup of coffee. This puts you at risk for diabetes and leads to weigh gain (just one can per day =15lbs per year).

    Yes! Consuming one can of soda means drinking well over 100 empty calories. Many people who share their weight loss success stories say that one of the most important steps to take to reduce calorie intake and increase health is to replace sodas with water. I like to drink sparkling water or add a slice of lemon to still water to make it more palatable and less boring.

    Moreover, be careful about switching from regular soda to diet soda. Studies show that the potent sweetness of artificial sweeteners can desensitize our taste buds and cause us to crave sweeter things, which results in the incorporation of more sugar to the other things we eat and drink on a daily basis. Also, lab tests show that aspartame (a popular artificial sweetener) consumption is linked to tumors in rats. Your best bet is to stay away from soda and indulge in it occasionally, but definitely not on a daily basis.

    Yes! And not only do we get too much sugar from soda, we get too much sugar in many of the things we eat and drink. Unfortunately corn syrup is added to many products, making them addictive and highly unheathly, so be careful!

    Sugar in soda also is not natural sugar that comes from a cane (which is relatively healthy for sugar), it is high fructose corn syrup, which is much worse for you. Pepsi has a promotion going on now where you can get “throwback” soda’s made from real sugar as opposed to high fructose corn syrup, so if you must drink soda I suggest you try these out (hurry, I believe it is a limited time event).
