Lets face it, soda isn’t the best thing for us to consume, yet despite the health concerns, many of us drink soda on a daily basis. Soda contains a high amount of sugar and excessive sugar in our diets is never a good thing!
According to Dr. Mercola, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s all have roots in higher sugar consumption. He has listed many studies that show a link between high sugar consumption and many different health conditions and diseases.
Even with all of the studies that have been done in regards to the health risks of excessive sugar consumption, some of us still need solid proof…not just studies.
So one man decided that he was going to drink ten cans of Coca-Cola for 30 days straight. Sounds crazy right…well it is! This is what happened.
The final results? He went from 168 to 192 pounds. That is a 23-pound weight gain. He also had a 65% increase in body fat, going from 9% total body fat to 16% total body fat.
Remember this the next time you pick up a can of soda or feel the need to purchase a 2-liter of soda from your local grocery store! Water is always a healthy alternative!
