While people do drink too many of their calories, Coke is like any other food item. It has a calorie content and people are free to decide how they want to budget their caloric intake.

Missing the point.
The body is more complex than calories in and out.
And ingredients matter.

Yep. And in this case, Coke has more added sugar in one bottle than a person should drink in an entire day. It also contributes to calcium loss in bones.

Coke is a great treat. Nothing better than coke in my book as a drink. However it can cause tooth decay, joint pain, cause damage to your upper gi system and of course if you drink too much can cause obesity. I recently gave up coke because my teeth would hurt after drinking it and I had joint pain. Since I have stopped I don't have any. Once a month or twice a month a .5 liter bottle or can is probably alright. But not every week.

Research scientists can be as corrupt as politicians!

Coca Cola Exec's put out an ad: Looking for research scientists to make people believe coke is a good snack! Salary: $100k!

And? With that kind of money dangling in front your eyes, you can be sure their research will come up with the proof it's a good snack!

There's a well-armed, well-funded research center in Paris, their only mission is to continually deny any negative reports on the ill effects of caffeine. Funding coming from the coffee/tea industry and the soft drink makers!

Go ahead and criticize these corruptible research scientists, some time, and see how far you get!

When I had coke for my snack, it turned into a very long dinner.

And there is a theory that the way you feel about what you put into your body, trumps everything else - that nothing is "good" or "bad," just your perception of it makes it so.

If you must, go with the cane sugar coke from Mexico in the glass bottle, avoid high fructose corn syrup.

Best to do it around work out routines so you burn off the excess sugar.


Ive found Lily butter cups a good snack, made wth stevia
