Drinking soda is the leading reason why I am so unhealthy. I have been drinking it every single day since I was four years old. That's a lot of soda.
Today I found myself wondering not only how I've let a sugary drink take such a strong hold over my life but also about how much soda I've put into my body. This was a scary scary thought but I feel like.... maybe I need that. So I did the math. Oh Boy.
I drink about 5 sodas per day. Every day.
5 Sodas X 365 days in a year = 1,825 Sodas per year.
I've been drinking them since I was 4.
18 years X 1,825 sodas per year = 32,850 sodas so far in my lifetime (about)
Well how many calories of soda have I put in my body?
I drink mostly 12oz cans of coke-140 calories.
32,850 cans of coke in my lifetime X 140 calories each = 4,599,000 calories of soda in my body
Well.... How many pounds of Coke have I put into my body :| ?
4,599,000 calories of soda in my lifetime / calories per pound (3500) = I've drank approximately 1,314 pounds worth of soda. Yikes.
I clearly have a problem.
