Family Fitness Expert Opposes The New York City Soda Ban And Offers Practical Alternative Solutions
Family fitness expert offers people 4 good reasons (and counting) to stop drinking soda; and the secret for how to do this.
Rochester, NH (I-Newswire) September 18, 2012 - Today, family fitness expert Sarah Clachar clarifies why she opposes the soda ban recently passed by the New York City Council and offers a more practical alternative. Instead of randomly offering feel-good legislation, Sarah Clachar, founder of Your Healthy Home Biz and Fit Family Together, offers people struggling to drink less sugary drinks tangible ways to do so.
"The soda ban won't shrink any waistlines – it really only conveniently allows people to feel like they're doing something about a tough problem," says Clachar. "You might as well ban sitting (proven by the American Cancer Society to kill), high heels and old sofas (back pain costs industry $300 billion each year) and limit birthday parties. By the soda ban logic, each of these measures would help save money and lives. Ultimately, people make healthy changes in their lives because they make the decision to change. "
Instead of imposing bans, Clachar urges fitness and health experts to step up their work in explaining why soda is so harmful. She encourages educators and coaches to offer tangible ways to stop drinking as much sugary drinks.
And today, she offers advice on both fronts.
Firstly, soda contains enormous amount of sugar. A 12-ounce can of Coca Cola which has 39 grams of sugar is about almost 9 teaspoons of sugar. This is equivalent to more than half a cup of sugar.
As Clachar elaborates, decreasing the amount of sugar in a person's diet will improve their quality of life and health in numerous ways. Less dietary sugar boosts immune system strength, helps people slim down, results in more energy and decreases a person's risk of diabetes and heart disease.
"The first thing I advise people to do who want to change how much sugar they take in is to consider these points and visualize how their life can change for the better with less sugar," says Clachar. "The most important step towards change is developing inside yourself a strong desire to change that can fuel the rest of the steps you need to take."
Then Clachar offers a significant secret to changing soda intake. As she points out, the average person's taste buds change every two weeks. If people can change their sugar intake for a mere two weeks, they can retrain their body to do with less sweetness.
While some people may be able to do this cold turkey, Clachar advises a more gradual process. Will power can only stretch so far – especially for people already stretched between family and work. By following a four-step process, she promises people can change their sugar intake and taste buds over time.
"This is the process my own husband used to shift from drinking liters of soda each day. He now winces when his drink is too sweet, proof that anyone can make this change if they decide to," says Clachar.
