Food Challenge

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 11.12.59 AM
Tomorrow starts our next “Guilty Pleasure Give-Up” Folk Food Challenge and runs until Saturday, October 4th. Sunday is always our off-day! Our Schulenburg Bootcamp Folksters are giving up soda & white bread; our LaGrange Bootcamp Folksters are giving up soda & candy; and our Stephenville Bootcamp Folksters took an oath (please see below) and are giving up  juice, sweet tea, ice cream & cereal this week! Anytime you reach for either of these, please think about us and put it down. It’s just one week of your life. #folkfoodchallenge

The Oath!  

  • “I solemnly swear to practice portion control, eat more fruit, and steer clear of the foods we listed above until Friday” -Stephenville Folksters, September 29, 2014

Why Soda?

  • Dehydration. Because caffeine is a diuretic, it leads to an increase in urine volume. So, when you drink a caffeinated soda to quench your thirst, you will actually become thirstier. 
  • High calories. A can of regular cola contains over 150 calories. Not only are these calories devoid of any nutritional value, but they also deplete your body of vital nutrients
  • Acid. The amount of acid in soda is enough to wear away at the enamel of your teeth, making them more susceptible to decay. In tests done on the acidity levels of soda, certain ones were found to have PH levels as low as 2.. To put that into perspective, consider that battery acid has a pH of and pure water has a pH of 7.
  • Weight gain. Researchers at the University of Texas say artificial sweeteners can interfere with the body’s natural ability to regulate calorie intake. This could mean that people who consume artificially sweetened items, “diet coke”, are more likely to overindulge.
