Replacing soda with water helps control weight


Sugary drinks, like soda, don't produce the same satiety, or satisfied feeling, that eating solid food produces. People who cut back on sugary drinks can help control their weight. Replacing soda with plain water, as a part of your weight loss strategy, results in average weight losses of up to 15 pounds.
By the way, diet soda is not the way to go.
Diet soda will not help you lose weight. Diet soda is artificially blackened water mixed with synthetic chemicals. It is one of the biggest health scams. When we drink diets soda with sweet taste, our body expects calories to follow, and when this doesn't occur it leads to distortions in our biochemistry that may actually lead to weight gain.  

Why? Artificial sweeteners in diet soda can increase our appetite and stimulate fat storage.

  1. Yeh I don't know if this stat is true. I just lost 57 lbs drinking plenty of diet soda. I think somewhere, someplace, someone powerful decided diet soda should be maligned and suddenly we have all these bad stories about it. But water is good for you because it is "H2O" that means two molecules of oxygen to ONE hydrogen. That means that you get a ton of oxygen directly released into your blood stream. That revs up your metabolism (just like when you exercise you get more o2)

  2. We know that soft drinks have no redeeming health qualities, yet we reach for them anyway. We know that drinking sugar and calorie filled soda leads to weight gain yet the average American consumes 50 gallons of diet and regular soda each year.

  3. I agree. Skip the soda. Water is best.

  4. I don't drink soda, period. I hate pop of all kinds and instead drink lots of water, milk, and juice. I've never broken a bone- and I swear it's because I took in so much calcium from milk as a child. I'm a huge milk fan!

  5. Drinking too much soda has been linked to a higher risk of obesity due to its calorie and sugar content. Most sodas contain about 150 calories per serving,

  6. Soda is the Devil! That's an overstatement but once I stopped drinking diet soda, I was able to drop 20 lbs.

  7. For years we were made to believe that diet soda is good for health. It satiates the taste buds and does not contribute to weight gain. But only recently these claims are being challenged. People are realizing the mistake of believing in the advertisements and consuming these harmful products.

  8. More and more articles on the harmful effects of sugary drinks and diet soda should come out. The younger generation who are more prone to obesity should be aware of the side effects of consuming diet soda.

  9. Water is the best drink. You can mix natural substances like honey in it to add taste. Moreover, honey is good for our health too. Learning to say no to sodas and aerated drinks is a big challenge that we have to overcome.

  10. Soda just fuels your need to get more sugar in your system, even diet soda. I try to drink as much water as I can. Sometimes a tea or lemonade are OK. But you have to treat your body for the long-term... plan plan plan. Water water water. - jj

  11. I often times find it hard to stop drinking soda as I find it very refreshing, energizing and most importantly... tasty. However I know it is bad for my health and my teeth and therefore I must start substituting it for water.

  12. It still amazes me as to how much a difference cutting out soda will make. And the body will start to crave water after a while and you will feel so much better.

  13. I admit that I do drink soda occasionally but it is not my beverage of choice. I try to drink water or plain tea instead.

  14. It’s not funny how much soda i have and in turn consume insane amounts of sugar. Thanks for making me realize this should not be done. I hope this will turn out to be beneficial for me as far as fat cutting is concerned.

  15. I had replaced my soda, but replaced it with diet soda. Thanks for opening my eyes and letting me know it’s not the way to cut weight. Thanks for a great post. Keep bursting such myths all the time.
