Your Body On Soda

So you want to stop drinking soda! You know it’s not great for you, and the reasoning makes sense: Sodas are a concentrated form of simple sugar that provides empty calories, which can lead to weight gain and poor health. Naturally, this doesn’t happen in one day, but regularly drinking sugary beverages can send your blood sugar and mood on a roller-coaster ride (and it’s not always fun!).

If you’re curious about how soda affects your body, read on to see what happens to your soda from the time it hits your tongue until, well, you get the picture!
