What are some healthy alternatives to drinking pop?
or soda whatever you want to call it. I'm trying to lose weight and in my opinion, I'm doing a great job with exercise but I need to work on my diet (I kinda just eat whatever) and I have often heard throughout my life that pop is very bad for you. To give you an idea of how much I have: while at college I usually have 2-3 glasses a day, and when at home i probably have one a week. So yeah, what beverages that have taste and don't contain artificial sweeteners are good alternatives to drinking pop?

Taste is acquired and most people who "have to have their soda (or pop)" lack discipline. The fact is that carbonated drinks with corn syrup in them are JUST PLAIN BAD. How simple is that? Couldn't be simpler. Because of the millions of dollars big companies make from sales, they will promote soft drinks as if they... More

I would recommend maybe using a bottle of water and you can add like a crystal light on the go or a kool aid thing which is similiar. I also drink some milk for the calcium. :)

If you really like fizzy drinks you could easily get carbonated water and mix it with juice or another healthy flavored drink.

Juice and fruit smoothies. Even though I think one soda a week is no problem. You can allow yourself that much, but if you really want to stop drinking soda then simply start drinking sugar free juices. But if you want to know the world's best and healthiest drink, then nothing beats water. Drink loads of water.
