Why is it that some days you may feel like you have a limitless amount of energy and other days you can hardly find the strength to get out of bed? Perhaps, it’s time to check in with your beverage consumption. You’ve heard it before: you are what you eat. But what if we told you: you are also what you drink!
Let’s take a look at some of the damaging liquids that may be affecting your energy, mood and focus.
1. Diet Sodas
Diet soft drinks may seem like the healthier option, but these bubbly bevs are loaded with chemicals including artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose . People who regularly consume diet soda often report issues including headaches, mood swings and even weight gain. Most importantly, these so-called ‘diet’ drinks have ZERO nutritional value.
2. Juice From Concentrate
Fruit juices are typically sold in concentrate to increase its shelf life in your local supermarket. Advertising has done a really good job of making these juices seem like a healthy alternative to eating fresh fruit, but as juicing experts we care to disagree. These processed juices are proved to have fewer nutrients and are high in fructose and acidity.
A cup of coffee is probably the only thing keeping you awake throughout your day – we get it! But caffeine works on the adrenaline centers of the brain and can lead to anxiety, insomnia and adrenal exhaustion. Caffeine is also very addicting, often causing irritability and cloudiness of the mind.
