People who are looking to lose weight can make a massive step towards their weight loss goal by simply cutting down on their soda consumption.

We all know that pop is not good for us...but I think we forget just how detrimental it can be.

The calories in soda can add up quicker than you think, they are tasty and addictive and contain high levels of sugar.

In just one small can of coke there is 39 grams of sugar, that's 15 grams more than you're supposed to have each day.

Reducing your soda intake will have huge benefits for your health.

Including, better sleep, improved dental health, and a decrease to your risk of Type 2 Diabetes and heart problems.

It can be hard to know where to start when trying to cut back on something you love. But try these 3 delicious alternatives to your favorite drink:

Flavored Sparkling Waters

Sparkling water has been shown to improve digestion, which in the long term will translate in to how easily your body can burn and metabolize calories.

Zevia or naturally sweetened replacements:

Stevia is loaded with antioxidants, and has been shown to help lower blood pressure. It can also help you reduce sugar intake without deprivation.

Coconut water

Sound strange? This is actually a new emerging drink across the world! Coconut water is full of flavor and is a natural source of Potassium and electrolytes. It has also been shown to help improve heart health and decrease blood pressure.
