What the “Soft Drink Industry” would never tell you…before and after

Who wouldn’t want to enjoy an ice cold refreshing Coca Cola or some other soft drink? If you listen to (and believe) what these companies have been pushing on us for the past 75+ years there is no reason not to enjoy one, or two, or maybe several…every day!

In the early days, we were sold the idea, “if you drink Coca Cola (or others) you will be thin.” Don’t take my word for it, watch an ad from 1961 by Coca Cola…

Is that still true today? Over the years we have become the most unhealthy and obese country (actually we are now second, Mexico recently took over number one) in the world. Not because we produce some of the best crops in the world, but because we also produce some of the most weight causing non-foods in the world…such as soft drinks.

I was shocked when I heard that diet soft drinks actually cause people to gain weight. How can that be? It seems counterintuitive. I am drinking a low or no-calorie beverage, how can I end up being fatter? The answer is simpler than you might think. To help answer this, there was a great video put together on this very topic, “The Honest Coca-Cola Obesity Commercial,” check it out…

So you decide for yourself. Is the 1961 information more accurate or the 2013 parody commercial? Based on the significant increase in obesity, I think the facts now speak for themselves. Time to enjoy one of those cold refreshing beverages? If you love your soft drinks, maybe it’s time to find another way to get a quick buzz and also be refreshed at the same time without increasing your risk of obesity and all sorts of other medical issues. Maybe it’s time for a high energy fruit smoothie…
