Over 2400 Calories & 600g Of Sugar Daily...

Just by drinking soda alone. That doesn't include the food I consumed in a 24 hour period. That is strictly the Pepsi that I consumed from the moment I woke up until the time I went to bed. I drank on average 6 liters of Pepsi a day. 6 LITERS. As the title says, that is over 2400 calories and well over 600g of sugar a day.

That was about 6½ months ago. I quit drinking soda. I had to. It was empty calories, and my teeth were paying big time for it. I am 23 years old and only half of my teeth remain in my head thanks to the acid and overall junk in the soda.

I now drink water, vitaminwater, juices, etc. I quit soda. For good. I never want to be so consumed in something like that again.

I had never heard that term before. Then again, my dentist was not up to date with anything, old school all the way.<br />
Looking back, I don't know if I necessarily really enjoyed/liked the soda so much, as it was more routine for me to drink it everyday. It tasted better than juice or water, I think that's why I drank it so much. I had a sip one night over at my mom's house and it was just so yucky tasting.

I believe it. That acid is a killer. No matter how often I brushed my teeth, they just slowly decayed due to the acid. My dental hygenist thought that I had an eating disorder because of the condition of my teeth. I am so glad I don't drink it anymore.
