My doc told me to go off pop 1 year ago today!!! My kidney's are much better and I don't have as many tummy problems!

I have not had any pop (not even a sip) since 1 year ago today!!!

what an accomplishment in this day and age!!!!

I think it was about 2 months if I'm honest, but my Performance and 'Outside of box thinking' just goes down the toilet if I'm not hyped up on Coke (the drink kind obviously). So much so that my ex-manager actually bought me a can one afternoon! lol.

I have from time to time felt in a bad way and stop drinking colas for 2-3 weeks and drink nothing but water and I come back feeling better each time.
But I get a taste for the colas again. Right now I drink 2 two liters per week and know that is too much. I do also drink bottle water.


Remember the old joke:
I don't drink anything stronger than pop.
And pop would drink anything.(;

its impossible to lose weight if you regularly drink soda and want to lose weight.

it really isnt that hard to give up, and when you do drink it, just ask yourself if its really worth the calories.

When I was around 11-12 I started drinking Coke, then at around 17-18 I switched to Diet Pepsi and I'm 27 now. During that time I stopped for over a year and drank mostly Perier sparkling water (I need a drink with bubbles), after over a year I felt I gave it up for no good reasons and just started drinking diet Pepsi again.

My wife wants me to stop again but I doubt I will, I don't really see a good reason and when I stop I don't have anything else I really like to drink and I always get dehydrated

Replace that pop with a juicer and man it makes a world of difference for the body and mind.
