If you have had trouble freeing yourself from diet soda...if you don't do anything else for yourself today, take the next 9 minutes and watch this video.Watch it. It will really clarify all kinds of questions you might have as to exactly why soda is bad for you.
I'm asking, please. Please watch this.
Note: Since this video is 2 years old now, the Food Target mentioned at the end of the video is no longer freely available. You can buy them at the link above for $5 if you want - but I'm not sure it is terrible necessary. Just knowing truly acidic foods aren't good for the body's machine should be good.
I drink at least 2 cups of coffee a day, but no soda at all. I need to think on this.
