Why You should stop drinking soft drinks

Soft drinks contain insane amounts of refined sugar, just as these foods and refined sugar are known to spike your insulin levels, triggering your body into storing energy which means more fat cells being created.




Here is how many sugar cubes a typical type of soft drink contains, varies according to brand and formula. Now think about it, would you eat that many sugar cubes if they weren't diluted into a drink? Most likely you would throw up after just a few of them. Soft drinks trick you into eating more sugar than your body can absorb.
Think you can drink Zero Coke instead? Think again, aspartame has been found to have the exact same effect as refined sugar when it comes to triggering the fat storage process of your body.
Drink more water, coffee or tea (without sugar), what you drink matters as much as what you eat in order to stay healthy.

Some of the most unhealthiest foods that everyone should stop eating

To fully understand the connection between insulin resistance and other chronic diseases (including cancer), we must first learn what blood glucose is, and how it gets there in the first place.
Glucose is the sugar that circulates in our bloodstream, and is the body’s main source of energy. According to researchers from the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, “in the United States, impaired glucose intolerance [also known as insulin resistance] is an independent risk factor for cancer mortality.”
The results of the study attached to this quote found that people with insulin resistance were 4x as likely to die from colon cancer and twice as likely to die from any other form of cancer compared to individuals who did not have insulin resistance.
Insulin resistance has been linked to the incidence and progressi…

How to lose 2kg body weight in 2 weeks

I always find a good way to switch it up and hope to see a good number on the scale is this simple advice:
-Swap some of your unhealthy habits for healthier ones
-Try to drink a glass of water 10 minutes before a meal, so you suppress the hunger.
-Ensure you drink enough water
The best thing you can do in my opinion is track. Track what you eat and drink for a day, it really opens your eyes of how much food and “liquid calories” we consume daily. Tracking your caloric intake will also help you figure out what your daily goal should be to lose the weight in the timespan. Average weight loss should be 1–2 lbs a week for health maintenance. I suggest the app MyFitnessPal since you can take calories as well as water and exercise. It will calculate the daily calorie goal based on height, weight and fitness goal.
