Sugar In Fizzy Drinks

I was just visiting a forum while I was surfing the internet, and I came across a forum post which someone had started. Their forum discussion was started with the question “Coke or Pepsi?”

If I must drink one of them

If I must drink one of them myself, which is very rare, I go for diet Pepsi. Now this blog post isn’t about what I think is my favorite out of Coke and Pepsi, what triggered this post was how much sugar there is in a regular can of Coke or Pepsi.

A can of Coke has 39 grams of sugar, and a can of Pepsi has 41 grams. I was amazed at how much sugar people put into their body with one can of fizzy drink. It equals around 7 teaspoons of sugar which would put on a banquet for the Candida yeast in your digestive tract.

How many yeast infection sufferers drink these

It’s food for thought if you’re suffering from recurrent yeast infections, and you’re regularly drinking fizzy drinks, what you’re doing to yourself. I’ve known some people who drink a few cans a day just because there was a drinks machine near their office.
The thing as well with fizzy drinks is they don’t actually taste as though they have 7 sugars in them. If you had a cup of tea or coffee with 7 sugars in it would be undrinkable. So this is probably another reason why you don’t realize how much sugar these drinks contain.

I hope if you drink any of these fizzy drinks that I have made you think about giving them up, or at least switching to the diet versions.
