How Much Sugar are you drinking with Coke?

Did you know that just one stupid can of Coke is 10.91% high fructose corn syrup?

Let me do the math for you ….
That is about 45g of sugar,  which is just about same as 8-9 tsp of sugar!

If you aren’t familiar with high fructose corn syrup then i suggest you watch a great documentary
called King Corn!

High Fructose Corn Syrup is basically a sweetener that is produced from un eatable corn that the Government pays farmers to grow!

To be perfectly blunt about it… this Crap is completely horrible for you and the worse part is ….High Fructose corn syrup is in almost every processed food you eat..

Don’t believe me? Go look at the ingredients of the jiffy peanut butter that almost everyone has in their cabinets!

ANYWAY ..lets get back to the Coke!

I just had a client do one of my programs and she told me he used to drink 5-6 cans of coke a day.

6 CANS A DAY!

That is an addiction and it’s scary and will definitely lead to some health issues fast!

If you are serious about your health, fitness & your life this crap has no place in your life.
Stick to black  Coffee, Water, Green Tea( the kind you make with a tea bag in hot water)

By the Way ……

If you think just because you drink “diet coke” you are off the hook?

WRONG! Read this article!<—-Click here!


Tell me about your experiences with coke and soft drinks.  Know anyone that was addicted or have any crazy stories to share with me.

Would love some feedback so feel free to comment below!

@Patty ..You are NOT wrong… It’s totally has addictive qualities.

This is a legal addiction allowed because of profits, that benefits the government of course..watch the movie King Corn!

I grew up on coke and pop tarts. That’s a testament to the resiliency of our bodies. As I started to learn in my early 20s about diet and its impact, I began making small adjustments. I quit drinking coke first and then all sodas after that by not having them in my home. Then I’d only get one if I was out splurging on pizza. I began to notice that the taste of coke became sickeningly sweet. Yet, still had a mental craving for it with certain foods. Weird. Every time I’d take a swig, my reaction was “nope, still tastes awful”. So getting it out of my house was the first step.

I WILL BE 42 IN JULY AND HAVE BEEN DRINKING COKE SINCE I CAN REMEMBER… I DRINK “ALOT” OF IT, I’VE TRIED MANY TIMES TO FIND SOMETHING HEALTHY THAT TASTES GOOD TO DRINK BUT I NEVER HAVE, I CAN’T STAND THE TASTE OF ANY WATER, I WAS DRINKING CRYSTAL LITE BUT IT GIVES ME HEARTBURN, TEA MAKES ME SICK AND IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE IS AS BAD AS COKE… I DID SWITCH TO CAFFENINE FREE BUT I KNOW THAT’S NOT MUCH BETTER, I KNOW I AM ADDICTED AND IT IS ADDING MANY POUNDS ON ME.
I HAVE LOTS OF HEALTH ISSUES THAT THE DOCTORS CAN NEVER SEEM TO FIGURE OUT, I DO WONDER IF THE COKE IS MAKING ME SICK.. I HAVE MIGRAINS DAILY, SIEZURE LIKE SPELLS, STAY DIZZY, I GET THE SHAKES AND LOTS OF OTHER PROBLEMS… I HAVE GOOGLED A COUPLE THINGS ABOUT COKE TO SEE IF IT CAN BE CAUSING ANY OF THIS BUT HAVEN’T REALLY FOUND ANY ANSWERS SO IF ANYONE HAS ANY INPUT ON THIS I’D LIKE TO HEAR IT…. THANX & GOD BLESS!!!
