With so many reasons to stop drinking soda, it’s a wonder we still consume so much of it, gallons of it.

Whether you’re on a diet to lose weight, or you just want to eat healthier, it’s something to consider.

So why should you give up soda, and what should you drink instead?

Here are 7 excellent reasons to stop drinking soda for good, right now!

1. It’s Loaded with Chemicals

If you don’t think you need to give up soda because you drink diet soda, think again.

Diet soda contains artificial sweeteners that some studies have found to be linked to cancer.

And last month, many cola companies stopped using a particular coloring because they feared it, too, would be linked to cancer.

2. It’s Empty Calories

This reason to stop drinking soda applies to regular sodas in particular.

Check the label and you’ll see it’s loaded with calories, most of which are from sugar.2

Most of those sugar calories don’t even come from “real” sugar, either — they come from high fructose corn syrup, which our bodies don’t process quite the same way as other sugars.

If you’re going to be using all of those calories (about 150 per serving), why not use them and get some valuable nutrition at the same time?

I’d suggest giving up soda and choosing a natural, no-sugar-added mixed fruit juice instead.

Sure, you’ll still get a little sugar, but you’ll also be getting the antioxidants and other nutrients with it.2

3. It Can Affect Your Bones!

A 2001 study by the Creighton University Osteoporosis Research Center suggests that there could be two reasons people who drink soda have weak bones.

First, the chemicals in soda may cause your body to excrete the calcium it ought to be keeping, and second, that if you drink soda, you’re likely not drinking calcium-rich fluids, like milk.

Either reason is enough to convince you to give up soda!
