Cutting Your Soda Calories

Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When you are feeling thirsty don't grab a soda. Drink a glass of water first, then sip on your soda. Water is better than any sodas, even diet sodas. If you were like me and could drink a 2 Liter in a day, you will notice that your calories will be drastically cut down.

    I find that the more I drink water, the more I enjoy, and even crave it. On those occasions when I feel I just want a soda, I squeeze a lime or lemon into a glass and pour sparkling water (from a glass bottle) over the juice. It is bubbly and has a nice flavor and has very few calories.

    I love the tip of sparking water with a little fruit juice. That is exactly how I kicked my soda habit!

    I used to drink coffee first thing in the morning, then cokes all day, until I ended up in the emergency room thinking I was having a heart attack, which turned out to be an acid reflux from too much caffeine. I since have quite drinking cokes, and just drink my coffee in the morning ( I can't give up my coffee), and starting drinking more water and juices the rest of the day, but I still haven't lost weight. Its a start though :)
