So, I feel like soda has been my nemesis for quite some time now. I go on amazing bike rides that burn a lot of calories, but then, drink a soda which adds all of those calories right back. In addition, since I work at a sedentary job where I sit all day, its not good for me to drink soda.
I've tried to give up soda before, but, every time I come into work in the morning, I just feel a huge urge to buy a soda for that morning sugar boost. I talked to one of my co-workers about this once and he said that he had also tried unsuccessfully to give up soda. He said that the problem is that water is just so bland.
I wonder if one day we will discover that sugar is just as addictive as tobacco or alcohol?? Perhaps the sugar industry executives are hiding secret studies that prove the addictive nature of sugar, hoping that it never gets out - just as the tobacco executives did.
