New Golden Oldie Spot - If you have some nutritional Golden Oldies like this one please give us a tip off

What happens in your body when you drink a soda, particularly cola and caffeinated sugary fizzy drinks.

  1. # In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.
  2. # 20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment)
  3. # 40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.
  4. # 45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.
  5. # 60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and/or artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.
  6. # 60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.
  7. #60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, urinated away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.

"In clinic we advise avoiding all caffeinated drinks, fizzy sugar laden drinks - If you really love coffee then drink it occasionally for pure enjoyment and savour the moment but never as tool to rehydrate yourself - if you are feeling tired your body probably needs better fuel, rich in vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, and minerals not glucose and caffeine" says London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston

Great post, I love this sort of information. If this is what coke can do to you, what might redbull do?
I have started some blogs of my own, why don't you add your feedback on diet shakes, exercise for weight loss or weight loss in general.
