You tend to skip colas. Yes! Even the diet ones. 

Sodas or any kind of fizzy drinks can add to the woes of a cluster of health conditions, such as high blood pressure, elevated insulin levels, and excess fat around the abdomen, thus increasing your chances of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

Do note that all sugary drinks are not only adding kilos to your weight, but also have a direct affect on your heart. How heart diseases are directly linked to sugary drinks is proved by a research published in the American Heart Association’s Journal Circulation. The research found that 12 ounces of sugar drinks such as soda, or other beverages with added sugar raised the risk of heart disease by 20 percent.

Best would be to switch to tea or caffeine or try lemon water without sugar.
