Everyone knows how bad sodas are for our health and it's not an easy thing to stop drinking them. But, besides the 3 methods presented earlier on how to give up on soda, here's another great one: why not make your own? Homemade soda isn't that difficult to prepare. Sure, you'll need to buy some ingredients and you'll need some time to prepare it, but it's definitely worth it! You will drink your own homemade soda, which means you know what you put into it, there's no need to keep wondering if some ingredient might cause you cancer (I see it's a trend lately to say that everything causes cancer...). Another reason why it's worth making your own fizzy drinks is that you will not give up on taste. Taste is one of the factors that kept you refill your empty glass of soda, right? Well,

How to give up on soda and fizzy drinks

Weight loss questions and answers
One of the biggest problems when losing weight is giving up on your old bad habits. We already discussed about how to give up fast food, we already discussed a little bit about the effects of alcohol on weight loss, it's time we have a talk about soda. Sodas are probably the worst of all temptations. Sugary, fizzy drinks are full of calories, sugars and not to mention so many ingredients you probably can't even pronounce. Did you know that a 2 liter bottle of coke has 800 calories? How many times did you finish a whole bottle in one day?

Can you lose weight and still be able to raise a glass from time to time? Of course you can, you just have to make the right choices! I've never been fond of alcohol, well maybe when I was a teenager but that's just a phase. Now I see people enjoying a beer after dinner or a cocktail by the pool but I still don't really care much for it. However, a glass of wine once a week is not something I say no to. Especially if it's someone's birthday or if it's not wine, but a glass of champagne to celebrate new years. Drinking alcohol is overall bad for people who are trying to lose weight, but if you make smart choices, you can enjoy an alcoholic drink once in a while.

A healthy diet doesn't imply only eating the right things, you have to be careful about what you drink too. Drinking the wrong things can lead to - get this - a weight gain! Do you have any idea how much sugar they put in a soda? About this much: Roughly, this is what we drink when having a soda with our meals. Ok, I may be exaggerating, but you should read the labels on sodas. You'll see that the amount of sugar they put in is quite high. For example, a can of Pepsi has roughly 150 calories and 41 grams of sugar. One single can! That translates to: sodas are not good for your diet and you should slowly replace them with water or natural juice. Since I mentioned it, let's talk about 'natural juices'. Have you ever read the label on one of those "natural" juice boxes? No
