An interesting story about how Soda CAN cause weight gain! I have a cousin who lives in Germany. Before we moved here in 1992, she was about 11 years old and was already quite overweight. A few years after moving to the Springs, it was arranged for her to fly out and visit us. Let me tell you….I wouldn’t in a million years have recognized her!
Do YOU or someone you know have achy joints? I knew how much I, personally, love Shaklee’s Joint Health Complex, because it got rid of the arthritis in my hip, but it is SO MUCH more rewarding to watch it help other people! A couple years ago, I met a gentleman, an HVAC guy, with extreme knee pain, due to the strain on his knees because of his job, and his son, who had back pain, decided to give our Joint Health Complex a try!
So…..I don’t drink soda at all, other than perhaps a couple sips of my husband’s soda while we’re enjoying popcorn at the theater, but many years ago, I’ll never forget something that happened to me. There was a business luncheon scheduled for a couple days in a row, and strangely enough, I drank the soda that came with the meal (it was a caffeinated one like Coke or Pepsi) on the first day, and then AGAIN on the 2nd day. Up till then I don’t think I had ever had a soda 2 days in a row. The odd thing was, on the 3rd day….I found myself CRAVING a soda! I mean….truly craving it!! I couldn’t believe it….it took just 2 days and I was becoming addicted. I understood that immediately and because I’ve refused to ever be addicted to anything….LOL….I purposely didn’t have a soda that 3rd day.
