The Worst Healthy Beverage

Are your “healthy” beverages killing you or hydrating you?

 by Jen Beck


In all reality, the only one true healthy beverage is…Water.

All the rest pose some kind of challenge to our health, big or small, so let’s look at them, so you can make educated choices for you and your family.

First, let’s look at the one we know is unhealthy – Soda.  What is wrong with soda? It tastes so good, right?  It may taste great to you now, but get off of it for a few months, then see how you like the taste. Last year, I was at my Aunt’s 90th birthday party and we had already polished off all of the bottled water. I used to love Diet Cokejen beck and guzzle it like it was water 10 years ago, so I figured I would just have some of that. After just a sip or two, I decided I wasn’t that thirsty after all. Back in the day I was so overwrought with artificial sweeteners and excitotoxins, that real food tasted bland and boring, but the processed stuff tasted normal (and yummy). Today, real food is what my body craves and my taste buds enjoy, while processed foods tastes like chemicals.

Soda is the top caloric source in America. Soda is unhealthy in many ways, the carbonation, the sugar or artificial sweeteners depending on if you are drinking diet or regular, the food coloring. None of these possess any nutritional value whatsoever and are all detrimental to your health.  Statistics say that you will gain an average of 6 pounds per year from drinking just 1 soda per day. The carbonation, sugars (real or fake) contribute to cancer and the dyes can trigger ADHD or create kidney stones depending on what you are drinking. Need further convincing?  Read this…http://www.livestrong.com/article/449074-health-dangers-of-drinking-soda/)

So now, let’s move on to the “Healthy” beverages.
