For a long time diet soda in moderation was on the Feel Great in 8 Challenge “Safe List.” I honestly didn’t love that it was on there, but I figured that, at least for weight loss, it was better than regular soda.
Then, I did a little research on artificial sweeteners (you’ll hear more from me about this soon too), and decided I really didn’t want either of them on there. I honestly don’t believe daily soda intake is part of a healthy diet. So, while I know kicking a soda habit is hard, diet and regular soda are now both on the unhealthy food list.
You will feel better if you cut out soda! Soda is full of sugar, high-fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners, and caffeine. I promise your body will feel and look better if you cut soda from your regular daily diet. Plus, since you’d be replacing it with 64 oz of water you get all the added benefits of healthy hydration. Save soda for a rare treat.
I’m sorry. Please don’t hate me. 😉
