I do find adorable that nutrition facts do say that we are only getting 140 calories per serving when we're gulping 7-7.5 teaspoons of pure sugar, not to mention the other chemicals it has. :3


That's normal with American food. I haven't looked at a can of coke physically in awhile I wouldn't be surprised if they say it has 2 servings in it. That's a trick a lot of companies play over here to make their foods and snacks look healthier .

the tricks they make it sound as though we're consuming less sugar than we really are..
(ex: giving the serving size as 1/2 cup, when most people would have 1 cup or more.
+ the heavy marketing saying that the food is a "must-have" for breakfast

Yeah if we do some simple math, and if we only drink coke and no food to satisfy our caloric intake in one day, lets say 2000 calories (which is pretty damn absurd, an average person should eat 1200 to 1300 calories to be healthy and keep a healthy weight):

2000 calorie diet / 140 (one can) = 14.28 cans

one can has 39 grams: 39 x 14 = 546 grams = 1.1 pound of sugar

7.5 teaspoons per can: 7.5 x 14 = 105 teaspoons of sugar.

Of course we cannot fulfill our calorie intake with only coke, this is just the worst case scenario. But is a scary scenario imo.

I mean... wtf lol

I also love people who wonders why they cannot be slim. Well, that is pretty much the answer.

I do love soda but it is so bad for you so I stopped drinking it for weeks at a time.

Drinking like 1 liter soda a week might be too much already.

Sugary Beverages (soda is included of course) are one of the main issues of why North America (mainly The States and Mexico) have the first and second place in obesity worldwide.

Of course, there are people that can drink/eat whatever they want and never get overweight; but those are the 2-3% of the entire population. Other people will get fat or will have their overweight anchored, meaning that they will do a lot of physical workout and lose weight extremely slowly and recover the pounds they lost the very moment they stop working out.

This includes: Soda, Juices, Flavored Milk, Energy Drinks, Sport Drinks, Sugary Teas, etc...

And to add up to the bad news, diet beverages are even worse, since the molecules they use to make us feel sweetness make us metabolize twice as much sugar, not from the beverage itself, but from the other food you eat. Making your problem even bigger.

Since glucose is something that the brain needs, there is no surprise sugar can become addictive, thus, to leave sugary beverages is extremely difficult, but not impossible (I have 2 years now without 'em).

From my own experience, I can tell ya, people who leave sugary beverages will lose 10 to 13 pounds in 1-2 months without doing anything else not even workout (if ppl have obesity they will notice even more weight loss), but the main issue is that those persons must really leave them for good, not giving themselves some "rewards" or anything like that.

To me, oolong tea, green tea, barley tea and plain water has been my friends ever since and I'm extremely grateful.

So long story short, in my humble opinion: For an average person with average metabolism, 0 soda is the answer, But that is just me.

P.S. Want to treat yourself?, drop the soda and have a handful of almonds with an inch and a half square dark chocolate. (with no sugar and 80% or more cocoa) when you mix them they give to your brain the same "sugar reward" feeling but almonds are healthy and dark chocolate has a lot of antioxidants and no sugar. So is a win-win situation. :3 My two cents.



I can't eat dark chocolate or nuts or anything bitter like tea.
So i'm pretty much screwed there

Every time i go for a replacement to something unhealthy i can't eat the healthy counterpart due to being sensetive to taste and texture of foods.

This is just for me...

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.When you get hyperacidity, that's when you know, you had too much soda. (based on my experience)
I had to be injected pain relief because the pain on my back escalated to me not being able to breathe properly. (Of course, its not only soda but a combination of alcoholic drinks, coffee, tea etc)

I might have 1/5th of a can of pop every few weeks because my family might have it out and I'll have a sip.

Pop is really bad stuff for yah. It be wise to cut nearly all of it out. It's a massive problem and certainly a leading cause of diabetes. Most people here don't care to 'die early', as they say, but I'm sure they'll certainly care when they have to take doses of insulin.

When you have to talk in terms of liters per day, that is too much.

Personally: I know soda is bad, but I still drink 2-3 cans per day.
I used to be in the liters/day category.
