Basically, I have a soda addiction. I drink a particular flavor like people smoke cigarettes. I have decided tonight that in my effort to prepare for walking shirtless at the beach this summer and going forward, I am immediately ceasing all soda consumption. Water and coffee will be my only beverages from this point forward. I will be posting updates here on how I'm doing with this on occasion.

I will also post any possible benefits I might experience.

I used to drink a lot of Coke. I quit drinking anything with any kind of sweeteners in it over 10 years ago. Nowadays if I drink soda I usually feel sick to some extent. Sprite is especially bad.

spend a little extra to get good coffee now that you'll be able to taste it

Flavored sparkling water has become quite popular lately. It’s fizzy and comes in 12 oz cans, might be a good substitute for you. I still drink about 12 a week.

My current beverage rotation:

Seltzer water w/ frozen fruit instead of ice

Iced green tea
(make sure the bags are paper as a lot of them have plastic components these days)
w/ lemon and stevia

w/ a cheat meal:
The occasional 0 calorie soda
The occasional beer

(This is not in reply to espi above. I just saw his mention of an occasional soda)
Switching to diet soda somehow makes people fatter. You also still get kidney stones from the caramel coloring if it is cola.

I'd rather drink tap water than diet soda

I was going to say, I don't drink sugary sodas or diet soda. But I do drink soda that has no sweetener whatsoever. Club soda, and there are also sodas with mild fruit flavors but no sugar like Klarbrunn, as mentioned above. I guess I just enjoy effervescent drinks...it's water, but more festive.

I do on occasion enjoy a Coca-Cola or a San Pellegrino. Gotta live a little. But it's once in a blue moon.

For the guys who knows a bit more about it, is there any problem to drink Zero Sugar Sodas? I still hear a lot of things that it's not good if you're fasting, and that appearently there are some components there that can be transformed into sugar by your body, but I don't know about it for sure.

The acid isn't good for your teeth.

I also like sodas. Over the past couple of weeks, I no longer drink Coke (judging by their new 'image'... I'm apparently "too white" for them).

I've now switched to the original Pepsi (with actual cane sugar and not corn syrup). You'll be amazed at how quickly you'll lose pounds. I need to drop about 10 or 15 lbs and in the past week or so, I've dropped four.

Haven’t drank a soda in over ten years. But I understand the addiction.

I'm convinced that "zero" or "diet" sodas are just as worse as the regular stuff.

The best drinks I like making are ice tea. Basically you take tea, seep it in hot water, quadruple the bags to make it ultra-strong then put a bunch of ice cubs on it and sweeten it with stevia liquid. Also make all sorts of teas by going to this site called Dave's Tea:

I used to go on Teavana but they went out of business back in 2018 and there is nothing like a tea adventure because it gives you more of a taste range then you can get with soft drinks, a much richer flavour and they are way more healthier too.

Day 7
Still no soda. Been drinking good amounts of water. Occasional coffee or unsweet tea. Switched from putting creamer and sugar in coffee to simply drinking it without anything added. Medium Roast Kroger brand was actually okay.

Been to the gym 3 times.
I have started tracking some tape measurements. Important one for me will be tracking my belly/waist. Also tracking weight.

Giving Noom a try. Should be interesting. I want to establish healthy eating habits that will last.

Note for the forum:
I'm not overweight, but I was heading that way. I'm certainly not fit.

You will lose weight just by cutting out the calories you were ingesting from all those daily sodas (unless they were all zero calorie sodas). If they were caloric that cut from your intake will add up and you’ll see it reflected on the scale and in how your clothes fit. Good for you for sticking with it.

I drink carbonated mineral water. I like the carbonation. You may find it’s the carbonation you like.
this is awesome mineral water and it’s always in my refrigerator.

my preferred is S. Pellegrino
