Soda makes you fat

at least this holds true for me.

I have kept my same exercise routine with a little mixing here and there and nothing happened. The weight would not come off. I cut back on this food and that food. Nothing. Finally I decided to cut back on my Mt Dew. I drink 2 per day and that's it.....honestly I don't think that's alot. I guess to my body it is because once I cut back I lost weight week after week.

Every other day I only have 1 Mt Dew. I just cant deprive myself (yet) and get rid of it totally. I did try diet Mt Dew but couldn't get past the first drink. The Husband had to finish it for me. (he will eat or drink anything) I am only losing around 1lb per week but still I was so shocked that I was finally continuously losing.

We wont talk about me being sick all last week and then getting ready for school to start this week.....that has delayed the exercise a bit.

So ladies, soda may be the key for you too! (I'm a slow learner)

This is a part of Amber's EM:ME. If you haven't already go over and link up to see what everyone else is talking about this week.

Soda made me chibs! I was drinking a TON and when I switched to Diet I lost 8 pounds INSTANTLY (granted I was 25, but still....) I cannot give up my diet mt dew, so I still drink TONS, but at least it has 0 calories! :) Great work on the losses!!!

Diet soda is almost worse, scary stuff I heard from CNN!

One of these days, I'll go cold turkey. :)

Heck yeah you are right on girl!! Soda makes you retain water and puts your whole body out of whack. Stay strong! And keep up the great work!!

Stopping over from EM:ME :)

I tend to drink more of it during the summer months, but even with diet, i lose faster when I cut it ALL out and just increase my water intake. but I agree...it is freaking HARD to stop!!! good luck girl!! keep it up!

THanks for stopping by my blog, I totally agree with this. I usually only have about 1 soda per week, and I can't even drink the entire thing.

There's a lonnngg list of what is in it - that you shouldn't have. chemicals..sugars..list goes on and on. Good for you for cutting back!

I don't lose weight when I stop drinking soda...I'm just less bloated.

I love soda so I still drink it....but less.

Have a great week!

Regular soda has about 2 (or 3??) heaping spoonfuls of sugar per can, so it totally makes sense that dropping it from your diet will help to lose the weight. Everything I drink (except for wine) has 0 calories. I prefer to eat my calories.

2 cans of Mt Dew a day = 330 calories. Cutting that out will DEFINITELY help with weight loss :) If I could only give up the coffee (light and sweet, please!)
