I gave up soft drinks (sodas) almost 5 years ago. Giving it up was hard at first. I had a headache for a good week. I also haven’t had sweet tea in almost 5 years. And being a true southern girl, sweet tea was running through my veins.
I will admit that I have had some positive results after giving up soft drinks and sweet tea. I do not have migraines like I use to. I use to have one or two a month. I have about two a year now.
Researchers say (such as Prevention Magazine) that the weight will start coming off after giving up soft drinks. I am still waiting for that one. I am hoping that cutting out all processed sugar will get the ball rolling.
