6 Worst Drinks for Your Body

Many of us grew up in homes where soda was the go-to beverage of choice for family dinners and school celebrations. Nowadays, parents across the nation are shamed if they’re seen sipping the stuff—or worse—serving it to their little ones.

And it’s not your imagination. Sugary and diet drinks have indeed become taboo, which has resulted in fewer people drinking soda. Sales of carbonated soft drinks in America have dropped for 11 consecutive years, with consumption of the bubbly stuff hitting a 30-year low earlier this year, according to a 2017 report from Beverage Digest as reported by Forbes.

So why aren’t we all losing weight and shedding belly fat? Soda has been named public enemy number one, so it’s only logical to assume if we all stay away from Coca-Cola, Sprite, and Dr. Pepper, the pounds will melt away—and in theory, that’s 100 percent true. However, there’s one big problem: Very few of us are swapping soda for plain ol’ H2O. Instead, we’re looking to other beverages like juices and flavored waters to fill the void. While many of these soda alternatives market themselves as the “healthier choice,” that’s not always the case.

  1. I don’t drink most of this stuff although I do like ginger beer once in a while because it has a stronger ginger taste than ginger ale. I do drink pure cranberry juice mixed with pure pomegranate juice and sometimes add some pure acai juice to cut the tart taste. All three have great health benefits. I don’t worry about the sodium content in tomato juice because I only add salt to eggs, use lots of other herbs and spices in its place for cooking and don’t eat much in the way of fast or processed foods. You just have to make good choices. I like the help against UTIs from the cranberry, the protection from artery plaque from pomegranate and acai. Tomato juice has its own benefits. The rest of those I don’t bother with. Orange and grapefruit juices I only get the unsweetened variety. When I want chocolate milk or chocolate for ice cream I make my own chocolate syrup using unsweetened cocoa and a bit of stevia.
