On January 5, 2016 I made the decision to finally stop drinking soda. <3
I had been thinking about this for a long time (it is on my 30 before 30) and was finally inspired to stop consuming the fizzy sweetness after watching the documentary That Sugar Film. Not only have I decided to stop drinking soda, but to also be much more conscious of the sugar that is in the foods I am eating and it is in A LOT of things. So many processed foods have large amounts of sugar and its often used as a marketing technique by companies when they mislead the public into saying something is ‘fat free’ when sugar has just been included (in large amounts) to make it taste appealing. I am not a dietitian or an expert in the field, but decreasing my sugar intake is something that I am pleased to be doing.
