Are you drinking coffee and soda every day? Did you know that your body is craving water. Our body is 70 percent water. All your cells need water to work properly. The immune system needs water. If you are not drinking enough water, your immune system weakens and you will be prone to illness.
Sugar is another issue in regard to your health. Sugar weakens the immune system as well. Ever notice how some people never get sick and others are getting the next cold or flu bug going around? More than likely, that person is drinking sodas loaded with sugar and caffeine. Caffeine also weakens your immune system.
A tip if you want to make that change and move towards a healthier body. Slowly decrease your intake of caffeine. I did when I quit coffee and soda in 2000. I was doing a pot of coffee at home and then had some when I was out in social settings. I cut my consumption down by one fourth and in four weeks, I was caffeine free. Same principle applies with sugar. I eat a pear for my dessert at supper every night and it satisfies because of the natural sugar.
