End Your Soft Drink Addiction With These Healthy Drinks

By Paul Darius

I think I've been addicted to sodas ever since I was a kid. It was my favorite thing to drink at the age of five, and it's still my favorite drink over 30 years later. There's some kind of fix that a soda satisfies that other drinks simply can't.

As much as I happen to love about soda, I've had to struggle with my obsession recently. It's time for me to focus on my health, and I figure that cutting soda out of my diet will be a major step in the right direction.

Drinking soda is bad for your teeth, negatively impacts your energy levels, and even leads to weight gain. As a result, I've decided to replace my sodas with one of a few other drinks.

If you're at a loss for what to drink in its place and can't come to terms with the idea of drinking water all day, any one of these drinks might do the job for you.

Have you ever had seltzer? If you have, try drinking it more regularly for a few weeks and the taste of it, or lack thereof, will grow on you. This is a perfectly healthy substitute for soda, and the carbonation definitely helps out.

My personal favorite is one of the various sparkling juices offered on the market today. With flavors like blackberry, tangerine, pomegranate, and more, Izze makes some of my favorite drinks. They're all natural, and you'd never know it.

If neither of these drinks sounds appealing to you, why not opt for something more serene, like a green tea? This will give you a small amount of caffeine that others won't, and the herbal qualities of the drink make many feel calm and relaxed. There are plenty of document health benefits to green tea, including the antioxidants you'll find in the drink.

Any one of the above drinks in place of soda will have a profoundly positive impact on your life. Are you ready to make a change? - 30540
