5 reasons to kick your diet soda habit

Recently I read  an article called “5 reasons to kick your diet soda habit” it said:

… “study after study shows that diet soda is likely failing you in its pounds-free promise and putting your health at risk at the same time.

Researchers have linked drinking diet soda with:

Weight gain

Diet soda drinking correlates with both increased waist circumference and a heightened body mass index. What’s up? One possible explanation is that diet soda disrupts our ability to feel full. …

Higher sugar consumption

…Artificially sweetened drinks activate our sweetness response, but don’t completely satisfy it, leaving you craving more of the real thing. This can drive us to eat more sugary foods than we would normally.

Kidney problems

Julie Lin, M.D., a kidney specialist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, studied the soda habits and kidney health of more than 3,000 women for 11 years.

“What we observed,” Dr. Lin says, “was an association between drinking two or more servings of diet soda per day and faster kidney function decline.” In fact, the kidneys of diet soda drinkers declined at three times the rate typical of aging…

 

Increased diabetes risk

“If you’re a consumer of diet soda, you have a higher risk of developing metabolic syndrome than a non-consumer,” says Lyn Steffen, Ph.D., R.D, a professor in the division of epidemiology and community health at the University of Minnesota.

Here’s why that’s bad news: Metabolic syndrome involves a deadly combination of abdominal obesity, elevated blood pressure, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides (fatty acid derivatives linked to heart disease and stroke) and elevated glucose (high blood sugar) — all of which increases the risk of diabetes, coronary heart disease and stroke.

Steffen studied thousands of people over nine years. At the end of the study, she looked at the study subjects’ diets and whether they had developed metabolic syndrome. She found that the greatest predictors of someone getting the syndrome were those who consumed meat-heavy diets, fried foods and diet soda. Other researchers have linked diet soda drinkers with a 67 percent greater risk of developing full-fledged type 2 diabetes.

 

Stroke

A January 2012 study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine found that people who guzzle diet soda daily have a 43 percent higher risk of vascular events — such as stroke and heart attack — than people who don’t drink diet soft drinks. However, light diet soda drinkers — those who sipped diet soft drinks somewhere between once a month and six a week — were not more likely to suffer vascular events.”  Click here to see the article

Why I Love Sunrider Story, Featuring Sheryl Fitzharris

par Sunrider International, lundi 11 juin 2012, 08:53

Recently, I decided to have a physical, which I haven’t had for a number of years because I always feel so great. I found myself a wonderful doctor and she did the blood work and I had the complete physical.

Her assistant weighed me, checked my blood pressure, height, and asked me when my last period was. I told her it was about 10 years ago and she asked if I was in early menopause to which I replied, “No, I’m finished with menopause.” With a shocked look on her face she asked, “How old are you?” I told her 61 and her mouth dropped. She said, “I thought you were in your late thirties!” Maybe my Maui tan helped as well! When the doctor came in she brought my blood work up on the computer and all she kept saying about my organs and different level readings in my blood was “excellent, excellent, and excellent!” She said, “I have never seen anyone with readings like yours and if I had a gold star you would get it.”  I had put down on my paper work that I eat Sunrider® foods, so she then said, “Tell me about these special foods you eat.”  So I proceeded to present Sunrider and all the wonderful things it has brought to my life, my family’s life, and so many others. She said, “I THINK YOU HAVE FOUND THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.”  She said, “Whatever you are doing, keep on doing it, and I need to get on your program.” To which I said, “It would be my pleasure!”

There is no better gift than good health, and the best gift of all is excellent health, vitality, and well-being, which Sunrider has definitely provided for me.

 

For the past 24 years, Sunrider has been a very special part of my life. Drs. Chen have been given a great gift with their vision and expertise creating these wonderful products. I’m so grateful they decided to share them with the world. I feel I was given a gift when Sunrider was shared with me, and how could I possibly keep it to myself when I know it can benefit others.

Sunrider’s Philosophy of Regeneration® is not about curing disease; rather it’s about cleansing and nourishing the body so that it can have optimal health. It has definitely helped me maintain my optimal health. Drs. Chen have definitely given us “the fountain of youth.” We just need to take part with love in our hearts and appreciation for all we have—not what we don’t have.
