What ONE soda a day does to your body….
– 20 minutes post consumption your blood sugar spikes causing insulin levels to rise. This causes the liver to convert any available sugar into fat.
– 40 minutes in caffeine is completely absorbed, pupils dilate, and blood pressure rises. This results in the liver releasing more sugar into the bloodstream, hence your “sugar high.”
– 60 minutes in the “crash” starts to set in leaving you feeling sluggish and tired. This is often when you find yourself reaching for another sugary treat to calm your cravings. It’s a vicious cycle!
Note one soda contains 10 teaspoons of sugar. That’s more than the daily recommended intake of sugar… in one drink!
