Pouring On The Pounds
Drinking one can of soda a day can pour on 10 pounds of weight gain a year. Cutting back on sweet drinks and drinking more water is one of the easiest ways to lose weight.
There is no other single food or beverage that promotes weight gain as much as sugary drinks do. Drinking beverages loaded with sugar also increases the risk of diseases associated with obesity–diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis and cancer.
