One twelve-ounce can of Coca-Cola has 140 calories, all of them from refined sugars. Replace your soda habit with a glass of ice water — add a squeeze of lemon, cucumber slices, or mint leaves for a nice refreshing flavor.

Make this change once a day and you’ll slash 51,100 calories a year, which adds up to more than 14 pounds!

Diet soda isn’t any better. It’s been linked to increased risk of stroke and drains calcium stores in your body.
