Stop Drinking Coke

Except that people dont drink it in moderation..

They do. Many do. I do. Like 3/4 times a month. But I like 7UP if it's any better. Diet one so the sugar intake is zero. But artifical sweeteners have its own health risk. Sigh.

It's a problem when you drink it like every other day.

I saw a video in youtube where they boiled coke and the leftover looked like black sludge

needless to say it was disgusting

then again coke is sooooooooo delicious

Dont want to stick up for coke, but If you boil alot of things for hours on end they will turn to black sludge!

There is no healthy fizzy

What about carbonated water? i know still water is probably better but as long as youre not exclusively drinking carbonated there should be no problem with it at all. Apart from it being addictive. In my experience.

Lol no, it's 3/4 250 ml bottles a month, on average, when there aren't enough wedding ceremonies to attend. And I drink only diet soooo my sugar levels remain low.

Once upon a time in the land of the Brits I walked into a store, pulled a bottle of water off the shelf in a hurry, paid for out, got out, cracked open the cap, took a mouthful - and there was a spray of water on the pavement.

I have not dared to try it again :cry:

basically coke or any black drink is bad for health so we must restrain from them......

sodas like sprite/7up r better as compared to black drinks...

moreover the energy drinks also must be consumed less as they damage the kidneys ;)

Lol

Really, a lot of "food facts" on the internet are half-baked theories presented in a sensational manner.

Not referring to the vid in the opening post. have not watched it.

That read like you have a mouth full of crushed ice xD ty for the link though, i'd read something about carbonation inhibiting nutrient absorbtion or something a while back, so im pleased to read this might not be the case. Im still trying to figure out why carbonation is so satisfying. There are some theories floating about, but ive not found anything convincing.

Some of the strongest cravings ive ever experienced have been for cold, carbonated water! does anyone have any theories?

I sometimes dilute fizzy fruit drinks with sparkling water so theyre not as sugary. For me it seems to be the fizz and not the sugar though. I think i went through a period of genuine addiction to it in my teens and at one point was getting through about 3 bottles a day, which was about 6 litres. I would start craving it mid afternoon and o my word...that first drink when i got home. Remembering it is making me crave again so im going to shut up.

This reminds me of the radio station that reported that the water supply had dihydrogen oxide in it.

It touched off a panic and I think to criminal prosecution for the broadcasters.

  • Before the 1950s, standard soft-drink bottles were 6.5 ounces. In the 1950s, soft-drink makers introduced larger sizes, including the 12-ounce can, which became widely available in 1960. (11) By the early 1990s, 20-ounce plastic bottles became the norm. (12) Today, contour-shaped plastic bottles are available in even larger sizes, such as the 1.25-liter (42-ounce) bottle introduced in 2011. (13)
  • In the 1970s, sugary drinks made up about 4% of US daily calorie intake; by 2001, that had risen to about 9%. (14)
  • Children and youth in the US averaged 224 calories per day from sugary beverages in 1999 to 2004—nearly 11% of their daily calorie intake. (15) From 1989 to 2008, calories from sugary beverages increased by 60% in children ages 6 to 11, from 130 to 209 calories per day, and the percentage of children consuming them rose from 79% to 91%. (16)
  • On any given day, half the people in the U.S. consume sugary drinks; 1 in 4 get at least 200 calories from such drinks; and 5% get at least 567 calories—equivalent to four cans of soda. (17) Sugary drinks (soda, energy, sports drinks) are the top calorie source in teens’ diets (226 calories per day), beating out pizza (213 calories per day). (18)
  • A 20-year study on 120,000 men and women found that people who increased their sugary drink consumption by one 12-ounce serving per day gained more weight over time—on average, an extra pound every 4 years—than people who did not change their intake. (19) Other studies have found a significant link between sugary drink consumption and weight gain in children. (20) One study found that for each additional 12-ounce soda children consumed each day, the odds of becoming obese increased by 60% during 1½ years of follow-up. (21)
  • People who consume sugary drinks regularly—1 to 2 cans a day or more—have a 26% greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who rarely have such drinks. (22) Risks are even greater in young adults and Asians.
  • A study that followed 40,000 men for two decades found that those who averaged one can of a sugary beverage per day had a 20% higher risk of having a heart attack or dying from a heart attack than men who rarely consumed sugary drinks. (23) A related study in women found a similar sugary beverage–heart disease link. (24)
  • A 22-year study of 80,000 women found that those who consumed a can a day of sugary drink had a 75% higher risk of gout than women who rarely had such drinks. (25) Researchers found a similarly-elevated risk in men. (26)
  • Studies in children and adults have found that reducing sugary drink consumption can lead to better weight control among those who are initially overweight. (27,28)

 

I am not concerned about US. I am amused to know that diabetes is prevalent in subcontinent. I thought a poor area who's population rely on local products will have better health. Less junk food and more home made food.

But i seem to be wrong. Do you think that soft drink in sub continent is part of the metabolic x syndrome in that area?

I am seriously curious!

    • Salam. If you have one year before you start your Masters degree program, then there is no need to leave your family to go study Islam. Stay with your family and do as much independent study about Islam as you can. Do research on your own by reading and studying. After you achieve your Masters degree, inShaAllah you can take a break and reassess your situation to decide whether you want to take hawzah classes or other educational opportunities or if you need to work to pay off debts for yourself or your family.
