Stop Drinking Sugar!

Want a quick way to shed a few pounds? Stop drinking sugary or sweetened beverages! The empty calories can really add up and can do damage to your health. This includes soda, sweetened teas, energy drinks, coffee drinks, and fruit juices. Even if you are making your own coffee and tea at home, try and move away from adding sweetener to them, even "better" choices like honey or maple syrup.

Luckily, more and more people are becoming aware of the harmful effects of sugar and sweeteners. Here's an article about Coca Cola trying to come up with new products in an attempt to stop their loss of earnings.

"More than just ‘Coke’

Long gone are the days when boxes of Coke quickly vanished from the shelves of grocery stores. Coke is now trying to build its products to fit consumer demands for less sugary drinks. One example is the European launch of the billion-dollar Fuze Tea brand at Zurich’s Giardino Verde, the tropical-style greenhouse.

Investors, so far, have been encouraged by a push from CEO James Quincey, who came on board last May. Quincey is trying to transition the company into more than just a carbonated drinks maker."
