Easy Tips to Help You Quit Sodas & Fizzy Drinks
All the caffeine needs to go
Giving up on carbonated drinks and putting them in the trash, yet sipping on your everyday Nescafe won’t do you any good. So why exactly did you decide to quit on all that Coca Cola in the first place? The main reason is the caffeine these drinks contain that do all the dirty business. And what is coffee rich in? You know the answer. It’s caffeine.
Take a considerable breakfast
If you are habitual of skipping breakfast just like most of our young burger awaam does, you need to think twice. Breakfast needs to be taken like a king, no exaggerations! So when you switch to a soda-free diet, the first thing you need to do is take nutritionally rich foods for breakfast, eggs for example. This helps you stabilize your blood sugar level for the rest of the day and clean out all the gunk those fizzy drinks have been storing inside your blood.
Choose an alternative to fizzy drinks
This is something that really helps because in order to get your mind to do something, you need to sort of play tricks on it. Some real psychology that is! So if you have decided to say no to all those carbonated drinks, whenever you get the urge to have them just keep an alternative nearby. It could be anything! From fruit juices to vitamin water. Anything will do as long as it helps you keep your mind deviated.
Start by diluting your soda with water
So you really cannot switch from soda to other drinks all of a sudden? Those taste buds surely know how to get their way, don’t they? Trick them! In the starting days, just add a bit of water to your drink when you take it, just a minimal amount. Gradually increase the water and lessen the amount of soda and it would be easier for you to get your hands off of them. You’d reach out simply for water instead!
Go slow and easy on yourself
Accept the fact that nothing in the world that involves change comes easy, whether it’s changing the Pakistani government or simply changing your diet. Control your soda consumption and work on that on a gradual basis, instead of just waking up one day and putting a halt to it because that is what would make you crave for it even more.
Accept the fact that good health comes at a price! Let your body take its time to adjust to the changes you are making to it. Oh, and good luck!
