Diet drinks can make thicker middles, not thinner ones

Diet drinks may be free of calories but they are not free of consequences.

Check out this article

and this one.

What is one to do?  Decide for yourself what battles you are fighting right now.  Take one unhealthy habit and work at replacing it with a healthier one.  For some people, cold turkey is the way to go.  Others need more of a “dip the toe in water” approach.

If you would like to reduce or eliminate the negative effects of diet drinks, decide if you are going to quit cold turkey or gradually.  Then, pick a day, soon.  And start.  Take each decision one day at time.  Then one day becomes two days, becomes a week, becomes a month.  Be ready to push your restart button for slips ups.  Don’t throw in the towel, just restart.  3 steps forward and one step back is still two steps forward.

And don’t just quit the bad habit, replace it with a healthier one.  If you are trying to stop drinking diet coke, and you are tempted to drink, have pure water instead or some pure herbal tea-hot or iced.  .Don’t replace your diet cola with cola.  Two of my favorite replacements for diet pop is  water with a drop or two of Young Living’s Tangerine Oil and Boresha’s Nuvo Gene Tea.

  1. Thanks for the posting. I have often noticed that a lot of people are desperate to lose weight when they wish to look slim and attractive. However, they do not often realize that there are many benefits for you to losing weight additionally. Doctors say that obese people suffer from a variety of health conditions that can be directly attributed to their particular excess weight. The good thing is that people who definitely are overweight plus suffering from numerous diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their illnesses simply by losing weight. You possibly can see a progressive but noted improvement in health while even a bit of a amount of fat loss is reached.

    1. You are so right. Our members who release weight often have blood sugars normalize, blood pressure lower, knees don’t ache and they sleep better too. Thanks for the post!

  2. I have been using Boresha coffee for about 8 days. Faithfully. Water water water……BUT this evening (about 3 hrs. afterward) I drank some of a diet cola. Now I’m very nauseous. Could that be the reason? I don’t know- weak moment. My aim is to SUCCEED on Boresha.

    1. Bonnie, I am sorry that I haven’t seen this before now. Had family in from out of town for my husband’s 50th birthday. This happened Saturday night. It is now Monday. How are you doing? Not sure why you would have been nauseous. You should be drinking 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of water per day. Maybe too much liguid?
