What we drink


Carbonated drinks are not ideal as they are laden with sugar, leading to a rapid spike in blood sugar levels followed by a subsequent crash, leaving you feeling unsatisfied and hungry for more.

Now, if you’re opting for orange juice, thinking it’s a healthier choice, you might want to reconsider. Surprisingly, orange juice and cola contain nearly identical amounts of calories and sugar.

I hear you say but the orange juice is full of vitamin C well not quite as true as what you think, because juice is pasteurised to kill all the bugs it reduces the amount of vitamins in the juice, even without the juice you can get enough vitamin C from a balanced diet.

Plus, you drink one can of cola or the same amount in orange juice you have blown your days’ worth of sugar.

You think you are being healthy drinking diet or zero cola well sorry to say you’re not these are probably even worse than the full fat cola, the stuff they put in this stuff is crazy.  One of the side effects can actually increase weight.

Coke zero for instance.

Carbonated Water, Colour (Caramel E150d), Acid (Phosphoric Acid), Sweeteners (Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Natural Flavourings including Caffeine, Acidity Regulator (Sodium Citrates)


In humans, there have been reports of premature birth as well as allergic reactions and weight gain in the newborns. Studies involving girls aged 9–10 have shown that aspartame increases the risk of an early first menstruation (<11 years).

Aspartame consumption can cause mood disorders, mental stress, and depression.

Acesulfame K

One study done on mice found that Ace-K caused weight gain and shifts in the gut microbiome, which could potentially lead to obesity and chronic inflammation.


If you drink every day or most days, you need to cut down. For now at least no alcohol Monday to Friday. The weekend moderation please.
