What Happens in Your Body when You Drink a Sweet Fizzy Drink

What Happens in Your Body when You Drink a Sweet Fizzy Drink   AisleBanners-drinks-SoftDrinks

Once ingested, your pancreas rapidly begins to create insulin in response to the sugar. The rise in blood sugar is quite rapid. Here’s a play-by-play of what happens in your body upon drinking a can of soda:

  • Within 20 minutes, your blood sugar spikes, and your liver responds to the resulting insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into fat.
  • Within 40 minutes, caffeine absorption is complete; your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, and your liver dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. As you could see in the report above, DeNies’ blood glucose level was 79 at the outset of the experiment, and after 40 minutes it had risen to 111!
  • Around 45 minutes, your body increases dopamine production, which stimulates the pleasure centers of your brain – a physically identical response to that of heroin, by the way.
  • After 60 minutes, you’ll start to have a blood sugar crash, and you may be tempted to reach for another sweet snack or beverage.

As I’ve discussed on numerous occasions, chronically elevated insulin levels (which you would definitely have if you regularly drink soda) and the subsequent insulin resistance is a foundational factor of most chronic disease, from diabetes to cancer.

Fructose Turns into Fat Far Faster than Other Sugars, and Fats

Lately, the media has finally begun reporting on the science of fructose, which clearly shows it is far worse than other sugars.

Fructose is processed in your liver, and unlike other sugars, most of it gets shuttled into fat storage. This is why fructose is a primary culprit behind obesity—far more so than other sugars. According to the news report above, drinking two bottles of soda per day can make you gain a pound of fat per week ! Dr Mercola


Make the Choice that Fits You

When it comes to fitness and weight consciousness it can be a noisy and confusing world out there. Many products and programmes compete for your attention and some can take an unrealistic one-size-fits all approach to helping you.

Your FitChoice self-assessment determines both your eating type and your comfort level.


Environmental Eater   environmental_eating-type-colored-circles_250x250

If you’re an Environmental eater, you have a tendency to overeat in social situations or whenever you encounter delicious food that you simply can’t resist. You can be extremely sensitive to the overall eating environment, and you’re most often triggered to overeat by external cues.

If you’re an Emotional Eater, you use food on a regular basis to address your emotional needs, instead of turning to other coping or relaxation methods. These emotional needs can range from stress, disappointment, and boredom to a desire to celebrate something or reward yourself. You’re most often triggered to overeat by internal cues.

Mindful Eater   mindful_eating-type-colored-circles_250x250

If you’re a Mindful Eater, you already do a good job of instinctively eating when you’re biologically hungry and stopping when your body has received enough fuel. However, you may occasionally indulge in Emotional or Environmental eating. You may be finding that your metabolism is slowing due to ageing or a health condition.
