Carbonated water, flavourings and sweeteners are the 3 main ingredients in every soda drink. A lot of other ingredients are also added, which naturally makes these drinks a lot more attractive and tasty than water. But because of all of these ingredients, it’s one of the deadliest products to consume. Why? Your brain will never be satisfied with soda, so you will keep consuming calories, without ever feeling ‘full’. A large amount of unnecessary sugars, such as fructose, is turned into glucose by your liver, and once you have created enough glucose and there is still sugar left, your body will store this as fat. This will make you gain weight, and increase the risk of obesity. So try to start drinking less soda starting today.
3. White bread
Maybe you’re thinking: bread is just bread and there is no difference, but you would be wrong, because there is definitely a difference between dark and light bread. White bread contains a lot less fibre and protein than wholemeal or darker bread. Fibre helps our body understand when it has had enough to eat. The sense of fullness is important if you don’t want to consume too many calories during the day. If you eat too much sugar, you may get too much insulin in your body, and it will have to counter this with hormones that you are not supposed to have in your body all day.
4. Fruit juice
Even if the label says that it’s 100% fruit juice, fruit juices are not as healthy as they would have you believe. After squeezing the fruit, most food and drinks manufacturers store the juice in enormous oxygen tanks, until they’re ready to package it and distribute it to the supermarket. Because of this process, the juice will be virtually tasteless, so the manufacturers have to add flavourings to get the delicious fruit taste back.
