I absolutely do not understand people who are trying to diet or lose weight who bring lean cuisine to work for lunch, then while they’re waiting, go over to the soda machine and drink a Coke (or Diet Coke). How do people not understand how awful soda is for you? It’s unnecessary calories. As many as I can eat in a meal. It’s also a ton of sugar. People always say, “but Diet Coke doesn’t have sugar.” It has aspartame which is suspected of causing cancer and brain tumors and it’s still loaded with empty carbs. It also has high fructose corn syrup in it, which stops your body from realizing you are full, so you keep eating.
Then these people go back to the microwave and pull out their lean cuisine that has mashed potatoes in it. I don’t get it. I’m not saying potatoes are bad for you by any means, but there are so many better choices.
There are so many easy, great resources out there. Tons of health/work out blogs. Trainers. Women’s and Men’s Health websites and magazines. I guess I just don’t understand people who are trying to lose weight or be more healthy who don’t bother to educate themselves or totally disregard something that is important about the process. Why even do it. I’m sure some is better than none, but I would say drinking multiple sodas a day totally cancels out everything else that you are doing.
