Today I wanted to share a health opinion piece with you. If anyone knows me, they know that I am completely addicted to Diet Coke. It’s an obsession really, but an extremely unhealthy obsession.
I mean, Isn’t that just beautiful. No, but serious. It was a major problem for me because it can cause a plethora of problems in my future- weight gain, diabetes, higher risk of stroke, teeth decay, etc. That is just the beginning.
I’m not a hundred percent sure if this is true or not, but a coworker told me once her daughter had bone problems stemming from the addiction she had to Diet Coke. These stories just made me scared of what I was doing to my body. I just didn’t know how to stop! Even after hearing these stories, it made me want to stop, but I had a hard time doing so. I finally got a push in the right direction from the weirdest source though.
Want to know the source. I started drinking La Croix. That drink you don’t know if you are pronouncing it right, but taste delicious and has that carbonation. Yes, that drink. I actually began drinking because of the soda tax in Cook County. Every ounce of soda or sugary drink got taxed one more cent. I didn’t want to pay for that extra tax, so I switched. Even though it is a bit pricy, I’m so happy excited that I did.
If you have a Diet Coke problem, I highly recommend switching to La Croix. It is literally just carbonated water with essence, so you are doing no harm (as I know of) to your body. You are also drinking water… just saying.
