Why You Should Avoid Sugary Drinks

Why You Should Avoid Sugary Drinks

While it's common knowledge that our bodies are made

up of mostly water, and therefore we should continuously

be drinking it, there are reasons as to why we should

actually, avoid sugary drinks altogether.

So, if you’re someone who is addicted to this sweet treat,

keep on reading, because you may be shocked to find out just

how bad that delicious drink is for you!

Whenever you drink your calories, be it in the form of soda

or an alcoholic beverage, your brain gets thrown off track.

You see, when we consume solid food our brain is able to

calculate the number of calories. But that's not the case when

drinking our calories.

Our brain goes, ‘Wait, what’s going on here? Why can’t I figure

these calories out?’

In addition to consuming more calories, drinking this stuff

can also have some nasty, long-term effects on your overall health.

Just because you can’t see it on the outside doesn’t mean that

other stuff is going on internally!

Type 2 diabetes is a national epidemic in America, thanks to

the availability and relatively low-cost of soda and sugary,

liquid concoctions.

All of that extra sugar wreaks havoc on our metabolism, so

it ends up going into overdrive. Sometimes so much that we

lose our ability to break down sugar and end up with type 2

diabetes, which is, in its most simplistic form, the inability

to process sugar.

Our bodies work hard enough as it is, so let’s not give them

even more work!
