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.
