As a motivational speaker on health and wellness I can openly admit that a few times a year I will get an overwhelming yen for a cold, fizzy, sweet pop. It's usually brought on by a sandwich. If I make a sandwich for lunch then I get a yen for potato chips. If I'm going to let myself have potato chips, and I mean full fat, overly salted potato chips, then I've GOT to have a soda! So I do. Delicious! Then it might be 3 months down the road when I feel like a sandwich for lunch again. So 4 sodas a year (and 4 bags of chips) isn't going to do any harm. Agree?
Sadly, most Americans average 2 sodas per day. This overconsumption of sugary drinks is directly linked to the obesity epidemic in America. The Center for Science in the Public Interest created this amazingly honest video so they could get people to reconsider their consumption of soda and other sugary drinks and to encourage people to think critically about the soda industry’s manipulative marketing messages.
