For years, I used to drink nothing but water and unsweetened green tea. But somewhere along the line I got it in my head that if you want to be thin, you need to drink diet soda. So for about 4 years now if been drinking diet coke. My weight has been unaffected, but sadly my health isn’t.
I can’t believe I wasn’t able to connect the dots before. But since the first few months I started drinking diet sodas my body started to revolt.
Kidney infections, migraines that got so severe they took me to the hospital, bloating, constipation, messed up hormone balance and overall organ failure. And those are just the things I can see and feel. Who knows what kind of abnormal cell growth is going on inside me.
I never saw the connection. But looking back on it now, it all started when I decided gulping diet soda was a cunning plan.
And it’s not even like I survive on it. I drink 2 liters of water a day and one can of diet coke. I don’t even want to know how drinking more of this stuff makes you feel.
So I’m breaking the habit, going cold turkey. Back to water and green tea it is!
Coffee, you’re up next!
