Soda is Not Food

An interesting read:

No, soda is not food, and neither is iced tea nor any other flavored-sugar filled beverage.

And, when you're trying to lose weight--or simply maintain it--the absolute worst thing you can do is drink your calories. An average sized flavored-ice tea or soda contains over 200 calories in one 8 ounce serving.

When you can only consume 1,600 to 2,000 calories a day (that is the reality for most women), then 200 calories drunk as soda is a huge waste of your daily caloric intake. It won't satisfy your hunger, so you'll wind up eating more then your daily allotment.

No, soda is not food and should not be part of anyone's daily diet.

  1. Agreed! But.... I was an addict for way too long. So glad I freed myself from it.
