I took a very stressful job a few years ago and to get through the day I used to drink a six pack of Coke with the occasional Dr. Pepper from the break machine tossed in. Literally, I'd take a six pack a day with me and by 5:00 it was gone. I had constant mood swings, I was dizzy, I could eat and still feel hungry and I wound up having two root canals within weeks of each other. And over a period of about two years at this job, I packed on 80lbs.

I talked it over with my doctor and he asked me to keep a "food journal" for a two week period. At the end of that two weeks, I was STUNNED by the nutritionally free calories and the sodium and the sugar I had injested.

After careful consideration, he placed me on a hybrid diet. I say hybrid because it was a mixture of Atkins and South Beach. I moderated my carbs, watched the glycemic index, and cut out caffeine entirely. In two weeks I lost 21 lbs. By six months, I had lost over 70lbs.

Once the caffeine was gone from my diet, I craved leafy greens instead of Hershey bars. I was full after a smaller portion by drinking a glass of water before each meal instead of having a coke. I drink around 100 ounces of water a day and OCCASIONALLY I will have a Diet Rite or a caffeine free Dr. Pepper. I accidentally picked up someone's regular Coke at a party and I had to spit it out. It tasted like liquid fire after so long not having it.

And yes, my uncle who is a state trooper, does use Coke to remove blood from the road. He even used it once on battery acid on my car and to break up some oil that had pooled in his driveway.

100% grape juice has more sugar and calories in it than Coke.

Some of you people will believe anything.

If you drink 2000 extra calories a day because you have no God damn self control, don't blame the inanimate soda.


Some of you idiots sound just like the gun grabbers. Grow the hell up.

Natural sugar has no ill effect on you. It's the refined sugar that's the killer.

Also, too many calories is a separate issue. What we are talking about is how refined sugar is a poison to the human body.

Bullshit.

Moderation is the key to anything.

I know plenty of people who drink 3 to 8 24 ounce bottles of soda a day. That is a hell of a lot of dead calories. If you drank the same amount of grape juice in a day, you would get just as fat and have just as good of a sugar buzz going.

If you drank that much alcohol in a day, you would be considered an alcoholic.

It's called self control.

I drink a couple pops a week. I drink a couple beers a week too. I drink much more dihydrogen monoxide, also known as hydroxyl acid, though; it is the most abundant compound in acid rain.

What I really wanted to know, though, is why cops bother cleaning clean blood off the road? There's lots of roadkill that leaves red smears, but it seems like they're gone after a couple days.

On a more personal level I used to drink about as much Cola as the thread starter. I'd go through at least 2 2-liter bottles in a week or so. It was all I drank really.

I cut out Cola and most any flavored drink (looking at the carbs from sugar and junk even orange juice and similar have the same kinda carbs are Coke, now whether one type of sugar is better for you than the other I don't know). Anyway, I cut out Cola and switched to drinking water only, occasionally a sugar free drink (diet drinks w/ whatever sugar substitute they use taste like complete ass to me unfortunately...). I dropped a solid 10-15 pounds with no other diet change in like a month, no extra exercise or anything. I still sat around on my ass all day just tried to drink better stuff. That is a HUGE change for doing nothing else differently. And I wasn't that overweight before, I was only right at 200 pounds.

Just for what it's worth, don't know kinda shape you cola drinkers are in, but if you'd like to lose at a little cut out the Sugar from the cola, doing nothing else differently I'd be willing to bet good money you'll drop some measureable weight, end up feeling better, etc...

I can't believe how many morons misinformed people are posting in this thread. Coke is NOT as bad as some of the people here make it out to be. Coke has calories in it (yes it uses high fructose corn syrup, but what the hell ever). If your caloric intake is a lot more than what your body burns everyday you will get gain weight. If you continue to do it you will get fat. Moderation people. Did they not teach some of you people anything in health class in school? Coke does NOT rot your teeth anymore than anything else if you don't take care of your teeth. Coke does NOT desolve nails and other shit. Some of you guys make it out to be a chemical weapon. I don't know about how you people drink fluids anyway, but when I drink something COLD, especially through a straw, it doesn't touch my teeth. When cold stuff touches my teeth it freezes them up. I don't swish coke all around my mouth or any other fluid except water when I brush my teeth.

If you are a heavy coke drinker, stop drinking it if you wanna lose some weight.

I drink Coke a lot. It's fuel for the 12-hour Halo 2 marathons. My dad is a machinist and he used to keep coke around because of it's handy corrosive properties.

A lot of the arguements against coke do seem pretty poorly justified. If it was as bad as some people claim, then there'd be five pending lawsuits against Coca-Cola at any given moment.

8 cans a day here, if it's available. If not, I drink a lot of MILK.

Drinking 2 cokes a day (instead of 2 waters) would be about (365.25*300) 110,000 extra calories a year. Some people may burn that many extra calories, but there are still a metric buttload of extra calories that go SOMEWHERE.

One gram of fat consumed = 9 calories.

You may need to actually read what I wrote.

I never claimed drinking OTHER things didn't have the same effect, only pointed out drinking caloric beverages (in this case coke) WILL have an effect no matter what state of health your body is in.

Previous poster said drinking 1-2 cokes a day will have no effect on healthy person. That is incorrect. 2 cokes a day instead of water WILL have an effect. That means they either DIDN'T lose as much weight as they would have, or they burnt exactly the same amt of calories they ingested, or they GAINED weight. The extra calories are there no matter what the result is. If said person ingesting burns more calories than they intake, they will still have ingested 110,000 more calories.

None of what I posted makes ANY claim other than to refute the "healthy person = no effect from drinking 2 cokes a day" statement.

The whole 'a calorie is a calorie' thing is really simplistic. It doesn't take into account the role of insulin and the endocrine system in fat production and storage, for instance. If a calorie is a calorie is a calorie, than a person subsisting purely on pop tarts and mountain dew will be as healthy as someone ingesting the same calories in lean protien and leafy greens.


I guess there's a chance that your health class in school was more informative than my endocrine lectures at the UW, but if you want to believe that high glycemic intake doesn't affect your endocrine system, knock yourself out.

I drink a ton of diet soda.
I always thought of it as flavored water.
But it's not flavored *spring* water though.
I heard that a can or bottle of soda has no electrolytes in it (or whatever makes water good for you).
It actually even dehydrates you!
This was proven to me once when I was in the hospital for something unrelated and I was told that I was severley dehydrated.
I was like WTF are you talking about?
I think I just finished my second 2 litre of the day just before I got here.
I used to semi-freeze it and then drink it right from the bottle so I had an icey type of drink.
The doctor shook his head and told me as far as my body was concerned if I had only drank soda for the past few days it was like I hadn't drank anything at all.
So I make sure I always fill up a glass of mug with a lot of ice with my diet soda (or tonic in my neck of the woods).

Of course i'm not too happy with the mild soda stain on my teeth.And I too wonder how all that acid washing over my teeth is influencing my increase in cavities lately.

My grandfather smoked two packs a day from his teens 'til he died when a tractor rolled over on him at age 78. Didn't have any significant medical problems until he acquired squish syndrome at that time. I guess by your reasoning, the concerns regarding the health effects of smoking are unfounded too.

Wait, now I'm all confused.

If you are a heavy coke drinker, stop drinking it if you wanna lose some weight.



The whole 'a calorie is a calorie' thing is really simplistic. It doesn't take into account the role of insulin and the endocrine system in fat production and storage, for instance. If a calorie is a calorie is a calorie, than a person subsisting purely on pop tarts and mountain dew will be as healthy as someone ingesting the same calories in lean protien and leafy greens.


I guess there's a chance that your health class in school was more informative than my endocrine lectures at the UW, but if you want to believe that high glycemic intake doesn't affect your endocrine system, knock yourself out.



Moderation in everything. I guess they don't teach that at UW, mr endocrine.

You eat 4000 calories in veggies a day, you are gonna get FAT.

Lay off the sugary, caffeinated drinks TOTALLY. The first two weeks are the roughest, but when
they're done, you're mostly off the caffeine addiction. You WILL feel better, too. And any excess
pounds you may be carrying will start to melt away almost as if by magic. That's what happens when
you cut many hundreds or even thousands of calories out of your diet.

I have to disagree, I had drunk atleast 6 cokes a day and recently had my blood work done, Not a single problem was found. As the saying goes I was as healthy as an Ox.

Reason I had my blood work done, every one was trying to tell me I was diabetic from my sugar intake.



My grandfather smoked two packs a day from his teens 'til he died when a tractor rolled over on him at age 78. Didn't have any significant medical problems until he acquired squish syndrome at that time. I guess by your reasoning, the concerns regarding the health effects of smoking are unfounded too.


I would say in the case of your grandfather the health effects of cigarettes where unfounded. He was healthy enough to work until he was 78 I would say he was rather healthy.

So you are saying that if someone eats 4000 calories in veggies they won't get fat? That somehow veggie calories won't make someone fat? Right.

Or how about if someone eats only carrots all day long. They should be really healthy, right? Wrong. Ask Steve Jobs about that one...

Yes but clearly he was one of the great men that fought WW2. The people around today couldn't do such things.

I do say that in all seriousness about your grandfather being a great man if he did fight in WW2.

I've known people who try to eat 4000 calories in veggies every day.

They are on the toilet more than they are working.

Edit: I was mistaken. They ate a lot of fruit.

I dated a girl who's mother thought she would be healthier if she ate nothing but carrots.

Turned herself a funny shade of orange, and made herself sick.

It's actually NOT "sugar" (sucrose) in sodas, but rather high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Very bad stuff for your body's metabolism, triglyerides and cholsterol, and a host of other negative effects. Long term effects from many of the artificial sweeteners are not real appealing either. Nutshell - don't drink sodas regularly.
