Yesterday, I read Julia’s fitness blog The one with the artificial sweetener… where she talks about not having had pop/soda/soft drinks (whatever tickles your gum) for a while.
It reminded me that I haven’t had any either since I started on my healthy eating crusade. You may remember my blog on 5 Foods for February. I have been focusing on eating more healthy and working toward a flatter tummy this month.
I didn’t even notice I ditched soft drinks. There wasn’t even a plan around this. It just happened. As I moved more toward whole foods and organic, the soft drink aisle was just not in my path. I remember when I had a Diet Cherry Coke last, it kept me awake all night.
So accidentally, I started pop/soda/soft drink anonymous. 🙂
It seems better not drinking fizzy drinks even for running. I feel much less bloated (maybe the flax-seed helps, too) and the thought of a Diet Coke with or without cherry does not tickle my gum anymore…
The health of people is really the foundation upon which all their happiness and all their power as a state depend.
