Here are some health benefits of giving up cold drinks for a month. You can even substitute them with these drinks. If you’re in the habit of drinking a soft drink with every meal, stop right now. We don’t need to wax poetic about the many health disadvantages of drinking cold drinks too much because we’re sure you are aware. So let us tell you what happens when you stop drinking cold drinks, even for a month. Dr Somnath Gupta, a physician at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, said, “Quitting cold drinks for a month can have positive effects on weight, hydration, and digestion. Your hydration levels will improve with your cravings going down because your sugar and caffeine intake will decrease exponentially after giving up cold drinks for a month.” “Your body temperature regulation may also normalise as it’s not constantly exposed to cold beverages,” he added. Dr Dilip Gude, another physician at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, explained that your tummy will stop being so upset as your healthier gut will facilitate the growth of good microbiota and decrease bad bacteria. Of course, this also means an improvement in dental health “as enamel erosion and cavities are known to increase with sweetened beverage consumption,” according to Dr Gude If you’ve been trying to lose weight, there’s good news for you as cutting out cold drinks can aid in weight loss since you’re reducing your daily calorie intake. “Mild early diabetics may even become prediabetic or nondiabetics because of improved insulin sensitivity,” explained Dr Gude. You will notice clearer skin, with less dryness and acne issues. Your energy levels and agility will rise. You will even experience better mood hence a better sleep cycle. What are some substitutes for cold drinks? There are many healthier options you can replace your cold drinks with. Consider the following. Herbal teas: These can be served warm or at room temperature and come in various flavours. Infused water: Add fruits, herbs, or cucumber to water for a refreshing twist. Sparkling water: For those who miss the fizz, choose unsweetened sparkling water. Unsweetened fruit or vegetable juices, smoothies, buttermilk, milk, coconut water with no additives are also decent alternatives. Who should avoid cold drinks and other sweet drinks? Children should avoid cold drinks due to negative impact on dental health and potential for excess sugar intake, according to Dr Gupta. He also explained that excess caffeine and sugar in pregnant women can be harmful. People with obesity issues, pre/diabetic obese people, those with prior heart kidney, liver ailments should also avoid, Dr Gude emphasised.
