Don’t Drink Yourself Fat

New York is trying to help their residents be healthier by launching a “Don’t Drink Yourself Fat” campaign. They talk about it here:

Here is the commercial they have talking about the dangers of sugary sodas. Warning, it’s kind of gross.

It says:

Drinking one can of soda a day can make you 10 pounds fatter a year.

Don’t drink yourself fat. Cut out soda and other sugary beverages. Go with water, seltzer or low fat milk instead.

It’s true that sugary sodas can pack on the pounds, but quitting them isn’t just as simple as switching to water. Many sodas have caffeine, which is a powerful drug that will kick you in the gut if you go off it cold turkey. Sensitivity to caffeine withdrawal is different for each person, but there are tried and true ways to stop drinking soda and minimize the symptoms. I wrote an article about it here:

If you are ready to stop drinking yourself fat, give yourself a few days to muscle past the caffeine withdrawal. Once you’re past them, you’ll be free to substitute water or seltzer for your soda.

    I weened myself off soda almost 10 yrs ago by drinking lemonade everytime I wanted soda. Now my primary source of drink is water, unless I want to splurge while I’m out.
