I have tried to make this decision before, but now, I am going to put it on this blog, so that I have a better chance of sticking with it. I am going to stop drinking any fluids except water with the occasional milk, coffee, tea and 100% fruit juice. My kidneys have been bothering me lately and I know that it's because the bulk of my fluid intake involves artificial dyes, loads of sugar, and other bad things contained in sodas. The only reason that I drink soda is for flavor... definitely not nutrition. I want to make this a permanent change. No soda. Only water. Has anyone else made this change? How are you doing on it?
