Photo Gallery: 10 Tasty Soda Alternatives ("10 thirst quenchers for hot summer days other than soda")

Photo Gallery: 10 Tasty Soda Alternatives ("10 thirst quenchers for hot summer days other than soda") | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it
Do you always reach for a soda when thirst hits?

Americans continue to guzzle extra calories through sugary drinks likesoda. And teens may be among the biggest offenders: Roughly one-third of high school students in the U.S. drink two or more sodas, sports drinks, or other sugary beverages per day, according to the results of a national survey released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The health dangers of soda are not new. Soda consumption has been linked to an increased risk for heart disease and diabetes, as well as to rising rates of obesity. Recent research from the University of Bangor and Bristol suggests that drinking soda can actually trigger sweet cravings by dulling your sensitivity to sweet tastes, sparking a vicious cycle of eating sweet foods and drinks. “As taste satisfaction levels drop; the more sweet foods are consumed,” Dr. Hans-Peter Kubis from Bangor University’s School of Sport, Health & Exercise Sciences, who led the study, said in a statement.

Isn’t it about time you and your family kicked the soda habit? Get started with one of these healthier low-calorie thirst-quenchers, sure to still satisfy your taste buds.

The Most Effective Way to Trim the Midsection May Surprise You

The Most Effective Way to Trim the Midsection May Surprise You | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

"Sit ups, planks, and ab machines won’t get rid of your belly bulge. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the abdominal exercises that do the trick. They can strengthen, tone and pull in a waist line underneath your fat, but the fat will remain. To flatten your stomach and lose the fat for good, you have to attack the belly fat from the inside out."

 

Sneaky Fat Layer:
The “inner tube” sitting around your midsection is not just an indicator of extra fat under the skin. Unlike other areas of the body, fat is not only stored underneath the skin, subcutaneously, but also in and around your organs, viscerally. This type of fat is dangerous and leads to many health problems, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. For women, there is an increased risk of gall bladder issues and a higher risk for breast cancer. Getting rid of that sneaky and dangerous belly fat will take a good clean up of your diet and a well-rounded exercise program.

There may be a diet to help children with ADHD sleep better. The symptoms of attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which include high levels of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, are most effectively controlled with pharmacotherapy and behavior management.
