CAn you quit drinking soda/diet soda?
Would you be willing to replace soda or diet soda with seltzer water or juice or milk, or something else?
Yes, you can quit, but it's very hard. My life style coach insisted I kick the soda habit and made me quit cold turkey. That was the worst 5 days of my life! But now, the caffeine cravings are gone, and it was really worth it. I've never felt better...drinking mostly water, with some milk or juice on occasion for variety.
I should really try and stop drinking soda, but have been saying this for years. I never drink water on its own, and add ribena or something to it. I love fruit juice, so perhaps I should kick my soda habit and substitute it with healthier drinks. Making your own smoothies is a healthy alternative.
I've never quit entirely though I'd like to...someday...but I have cut back a lot at times, and my #1 tip for doing so is to drink soda water. I have a sodastream soda maker and I make bubbly water and add a little bit of juice, lemonade, or sweetened lime juice to it. It has waaaaaaay fewer calories, no scary additives, and it definitely satisfies the carbonated beverage craving.
I'd also recommend that you don't quit cold turkey if you're a more-than-one-a-day soda drinker, but to gradually reduce to once a day before you quit! You'll be more likely to succeed that way, I think.
when i met the executive director of research for the world naturopathic health organization in 1998, he showed his research on both diet and regular soda and we also quit all dairy at the same time. that was quite a bit more difficult than the soda's. i later met a patient of his who flew all the way from australia-he went to the best medical places in the world (most expensive too) and could not help him. his brain developed a brain lesion due to aspertame poisoning and had a tumor like growth. my friend was able to take care of him and heal him-he was only 28 and a strong healthy young man, basically left to die unless he got to my colleague.
