How you can use water to make you stop drinking soda

Although water won't necessarily curb your soda addiction…

2 steps I personally followed to stop drinking soda…

Step 1: Slowly stop drinking soda

Each week you want to drink less & less soda until you stop completely and the best way to do this is to…

Start off the first week drinking 1/4 or a quarter less sodas than you do now - so for example…

If you're drinking 10 sodas now… You would drink 7 sodas the first week… 5 sodas the 2nd week and so on until you're not drinking any sodas at all and by the way…

When I say "sodas"… I'm talking about 20 oz. cans of soda so… If you drink 2 or 3 liters of soda a week - just remember about three 20 oz. cans of soda equal 1 liter of soda.

Use the calculator below to figure out how many sodas you need to drink each week to eventually stop drinking soda completely…

Type in how many sodas you're drinking now and click "Enter"
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 1st week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 2nd week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 3rd week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 4th week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 5th week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 6th week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 7th week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 8th week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 9th week
  • Drink 20 oz. cans of soda your 10th week

The reason why you don't start off NOT drinking any soda at all is because it's going to be real hard to do so and you may suffer painful caffeine withdrawal headaches and…

Cutting back little by little every week will keep the headaches from coming but eventually… You're going to have to detoxify your body and flush out all the toxins causing your withdrawal headaches.

Step 2: KILL your cravings for soda

When you're to the point where you're only drinking about 3 cans of soda a week you want to start detoxifying your body by…

Eating like this not only flushes the toxins out of your body but it also help kill the sugar cravings you have for soda and other fattening foods and guess what…

That's how I personally stopped drinking soda and this method may not be scientifically tested or researched but it worked wonders for me.

You should look into The Makers Diet by Jordan Rubin. It's not really a diet, it's more of a detox/body cleansing. But one of the benefits is weight loss . We did it 2 years ago and as a result my Dad lost 20 lbs. and our bodies felt better and we had a lot more energy.

The website is: www.makers-diet.net

I am an older person, 63 and I have been drinking soda since my twenties. I am lucky it has not rotted my teeth out and I am not obese (5'6" and 132 lbs). My hips are large and my stomach is flabby. I had two "C" sections in my younger years and have had problems ever since. I plan to use some of your exercises and I quit drinking soda, cold turkey, a month ago. I have had no adverse problems from it. I plan to get a nice stomach back as I still have some good years left in me. Thank you for your site....I do drink LOTS of water now and green tea.

Hello, just wanted to say thank you for your helpful site! Usually when I see posts containing content that warns just how bad types of food or drink are, I get frustrated because a lot of them go overboard. But I think that this post was insighftul and made a lot more sense to me. How do baby animals come off their mother's milk? They are weaned off it. This post outlined that stopping an "addiction" as such takes time, and realises that it is not easy. I also searched the net for sugar-free gum containing xylitol (regarding whiter teeth post) and am very pleased that the first site to pop up in the engine was Trident's. Now this reminds me of when my friend and I chewed Trident gum quite often back in secondary school. Would you recommend Trident? Around that time, another friend asked me "how do you get your teeth so white?" I thought nothing of it - just put it down to genes. But now I realise it could be that the gum chewing did have other benefits besides helping me to relax in class (very nervous person here); just had to make sure I was quiet and didn't get caught by the teacher (that would be an ultimate embarrassment for sure)!

The posts for whiter teeth and how to stop drinking fizzy drinks have given me the motivation I need to try to do something about my bad fizzy drinking habit. Especially since my dentists are constantly advising me to cut down. Funnily enough, mum has been on a mission to try to get the family to cut down on fizzy by hiding the six pack of cans, and only revealing them at the weekend so that we don't finish the six pack off quickly then go buy more during the weekend. Whilst I think mum's method will help money-wise, I think that all it does is make us grumpy and miserable (and slightly mad as we go on a hunt around the house for hidden fizzy drinks)! So I have faith that your method will allow me to finally give myself the upper hand over fizzy drinks! :) This post reminded me of a childhood best friend who never had fizzy drinks. Whilst at the time I thought it was weird and felt sorry for her missing out on the tasty fizzy drinks, I think it was a brilliant idea from her parents to prevent her from getting hooked on fizzy drinks. So mums, if you are reading this, maybe this will make a possible future battle between the addictive fizzy drinks and your child need not happen. ^^

... did you mean 12 oz cans instead of 20? Or did you mean 20 oz bottles (which can only be purchased in vending machines -- 16 oz bottles are most common in the grocery store)? It's hard to do any of this when the measurements could be all over the place.

just use whatever oz cans you are used to

New drinking game... Drink one soda every time the word 'and' appears in the article above. Drink one Energy Shot every time there is a Grammatical Error. And...... GO!!

Last winter I was around 135-140 pounds. I quit drinking soft drinks around February. It was really hard at first, so I replaced all the soft drinks I usually drank with orange juice, then slowly I started drinking pure green tea. By the end of July I was 115 pounds and I feel better than ever. So, who ever says that you can't lose weight by cutting off on soft drinks is rather stupid.

There are so many grammatical errors in this article that I have cancer, now, so I think I'm going to replace this article, with soda, instead of any of that scare tactic bullshit you wrote. Honestly, what are you, twelve? You rival the Truth campaign in retarded scare tactics, you know that? So thank you, for hinting at the fact that, if I don't want to become a moron like you, I should, if anything, drink MORE soda. By the way, I drink soda like a fucking fish drinks water, and I'm 160 pounds, male, and there's very little fat on my body, WHATSOEVER, and I barely work out, so what's your response to that? Wait, never mind, I don't want to hear it. It'd probably be too grammatically fucked up to read.

You and your abuse of commas should not be complaining about grammar.

WTF, shut up crackhead. This is advice that the writer is giving. It's a suggestion and a damn good one at that. You don't HAVE to follow it. If you're in such good shape why are you even looking at anything in this site. This site is for people who are interested in getting better. Not for cocky punks like yourself. This advice will work for MOST people. While not all people, if they are a special case, but most people. So mind your own business and stop being rude to people who are just trying to help others. Freaking imbecile. And I can testify to this information as I am not fat. I'm 22 years old at 5'2 and I fluctuate between 122 and 118 lbs without working out. After I attempted working out for 6 weeks, I was able to get down to 114. But I did not cut out soda or change any of my eating habits. As soon as I quit soda, I know for a fact I will lose MUCH, MUCH MORE. My skin will get better and all excess fat should drop off. I eat bread once a week but I eat 3 big meals a day and am not shy about eating. So I am not doing all I can do to lose weight at all. But as soon as the soda is dropped I will be in the best shape of my life. I know this because I am studying to be a doctor and am also studying nutrition and this is common sense in our field. If you do not know what the hell you're talking about, you should not spit your two cents where it isn't needed unless you're 100% sure you're correct, or you just look stupid and upset people. Do not just use yourself as an example for everyone because you aren't everyone and the world doesn't revolve around you. So shut up.

Your post looks like you didn't even try to really put up any facts. I've lost pounds and pounds just by switching from Coke to Coke Zero. Artificial sweeteners making you more hungry? Well since I'm the one actually drinking it and your just posting things you Googled, who has more of a solid here?

People shouldn't be able to write things like this if the only evidence they have is other peoples say so. Write about things you've actually experienced and went through. This garbage about what things can and can't do is ridiculous.

Who is buying your panic story? I'm watching the weight come off and laughing with a diet soda in my hands.

Are you serious??? You are an idiot...do you know that DIET anything is NOT good for you and diet soda actually causes diabetics more problems than regular ???!!! I applaud Adrian for his courage and motivation to actually help people...most people don't have time to do the research he does so what if he cuts and pastes it is actually good solid medical info so who are you to put him down. BTW I am a medical professional who is finally feed up with you lay people thinking you know it all. Go ahead keep drinking your diet stuff and when it finally does you in then who will you have to blame ? I say KUDOS Adrian we love your spirit and keep it up!

I quit drinking regular soda in April of 2010. I lost 30 lbs by April of 2011. I stopped drinking soda because my doctor told me it was going to shut my kidneys down. I quit cold turkey. I traded the soda for the yummy goodness of concord graper juice and water, and within 6 weeks I was only drinking water. In June of 2011 I quit smoking cigarettes, cause I thought, if I can quit 1 thing I can quit 2 things. But I gained 20 lbs in 3.5 months from quitting the cigarettes! I couldn't stop eating, I traded the nicotine craving for the dairy & chocolate craving. I started smoking again and lost 15 lbs. I'm going to try to quit smoking again this spring, I hope I can't quit without packing on the pounds. I still haven't had a sip of soda since. If I crave it (twice yearly, it seems) I smell, -rather huff it instead of actually tasting it, since all the other people I know I drink soda. But the really good news is that since I've started drinking water, several family members have traded at least one soda per day to a 16oz bottle of water. And I urge anyone reading this to pay attention to their lower belly & lower back the next time they drink soda... if you feel any discomfort during or within 45mins of ingesting the soda... Stop Drinking Soda! Your Kidneys Can't Take It Anymore!

I am working on quitting the soda now. Quit smoking earlier this year using a refillable e cig can order on line (Charleston e cig) stepped down the nicotine until I reached 0 that way I had no side effects. You do have to be mindful of what you eat when you quit smoking as your taste bubs were somewhat damaged by the smoking as they come back food taste much better so be careful how much you eat.

Just wanting to drop by and say quitting soda was awesome and helped play a part in losing most of my weight in the beginning.

I'll admit the nausea from quitting nearly broke me but damned if I didn't pull through anyway.

i am drinking an excess of 3lt a day!!! i have only had one glass today and already bam headache. i suffer from severe migraines at the best of times :/

HI,

Try and quit if you can. It can bring on migraines (I get them) and also heighten anxiety which can bring headaches. I quite cold turkey a few summers ago and lost a stone in 3 weeks. I am back on it but I am buying the small 250 ml cans and when I get the craving having one of them or a zero. Its crazy how addictive it is. Wish I was never given it as a child but hey it was the 80s.
