Interesting article regarding the effects of drinking soda. On the campus I attend, there are at least 2 pop machines on every floor in all the buildings. I know it was easy for me to grab a pop from the pop machine during breaks to grab a pop to drink so that the caffeine would help keep me awake during class.
This article doesn't really mention the effects of diet soda, but I have read other studies that say diet soda does have some effects due to the artificial sweetners they contain.
I have tried quitting drinking pop twice. The first time was about 3 years ago, and I lost 5 pounds in the first two weeks without making any other changes, and I had only been drinking diet pop. This time, I have been pop free since July, and I can really tell a difference in my body from not drinking it.
How much soda do you drink in a day or a week? Do you usually grab one during a break in class?
