Kick Your Afternoon Soda

Of course you know you should stop—but how? Frank Lipman, MD, founder of New York's Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, weighs in: "Those who drink at least one soda per day have a 31 percent greater chance of becoming obese. Diet soda is just as bad. Why put those extra chemicals into your body? The easiest replacement is club soda with lemon. You could also try herbal iced tea or coconut water. But do it cold turkey. In a couple of weeks, you won't even want the soda anymore."
