It's not technically a 'secret' (have any of these blogs?!), but it's the one non-negotiable when training with me.
Cut down, and then cut out, fizzy drinks.
I'm not even going to bore you with the reasons why they're so SO bad for you.*
I don't want to clutter this email with jokes and nonsense, because this one is so important.
You will feel better, be healthier and live longer, fitter, stronger, happier lives if you stop drinking fizzy/soft/whatever drinks.
Anything (usually) carbonated, with a stack of ingredients that you can't pronounce, sometimes in a lurid colour is just a big no.
Here are some alternatives:
- Sparkling water with a squeeze of lemon/lime
- Growing up, pulling yourself together and cutting them out
Pictured is a womanchild who drinks an insane amount of Diet Coke. And you don't want to be like her. So stop it.
Ooh that got ranty didn't it.
I know no one likes to be ranted at, but this is something I feel passionate about. So start cutting down on it, please.
