Why You Should Avoid Sugary Drinks

be drinking it, there are reasons as to why we should
actually, avoid sugary drinks altogether.

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.

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

even more work!
