No pop, soda, Coke or whatever you call all of those carbonated, usually caffinated beverages, for 90 days. I did it once for 30 days and it wasn’t like getting off cocaine or anything, but it certainly wasn’t easy. Here are some statements I found on the web concerning drinking pop. Remember, these are just random places off the web. I make no claims to the validity of any of these statements.

  • Soda has no nutritional value. It provides unnecessary calories, sugar and caffeine.
  • Soda drinking increases the odds of obesity more than other foods. Why? Because the energy consumed as liquid often isn’t compensated for by eating less food.
  • These popular beverages account for more than a quarter of all drinks consumed in the United States.
  • The acids in soda pop are also notorious for etching tooth enamel in ways that can lead to cavities.
  • There are 35 to 38 milligrams of caffine per 12-ounce can, that is roughly 28 percent of the amount found in an 8-ounce cup of coffee.
  • Animal studies demonstrate that phosphorus, a common ingredient in soda, can deplete bones of calcium.
  • So, I thought I’d try and go 90 days with no pop and see if I can tell the difference. Like I said, I went 30 days once about a year ago and in the end noticed a slight difference in energy. I decided to go 90 days this time to see if there’s more of a difference after the 30 days. I had a heck of a headache yesturday and the day before. The last time I drank any pop was 3 days ago, Friday the 27th at lunch. So far that’s the noticed difference and it’s quite irritating.
