    Default Do you drink soda?

    So, do you folks drink soda? If so, what kind? Do you drink a lot?

    Heh, to be honest, I don't get it. We, as humans, have evolved through time, a great deal of time, and we're biologically in-tune with what's best for us for the most part. We have plenty of instincts that help guide us out of harms way, even as infants. We have strong immune systems, and a powerful mind.

    Now, here's what I don't understand. Why is it that almost everything we need to eat that's healthy for us, tastes bad? Why is it that our biological tuning is wired like this? It just makes no sense whatsoever to me, that our bodies are wired against it.

    Should food that is bad for us, taste good, and food that is good for us, taste bad? It's like, for some reason, mother nature saw fit to challenge us. Like it's sentient, and has a childish grudge against us.


    Yummy.

    I've actually found that if I actually focus on the taste, sugary foods and processed foods do not taste good at all, whereas a piece of fruit will taste delicious. Maybe that's just me though.

    EDIT: I don't really fit any choices in the poll. I still eat unhealthy foods, and enjoy them. If I really think about it though, I don't.

    The don't, your taste buds just get messed up eating manufactured crap.

    Why are we atuned this way? Because until the last few centuries food was scarce so high calorie foods taste great to us so we'd have the instinct to seek them out and eat them!

    So the flavours which represent high calorie foods(which we find tasty cause of nature) are put into candy and stuff.

    So our taste buds adapt to what we eat frequently?

    If I eat nothing but fruits and vegetables, for a year, then tried to eat some manufactured stuff or donuts or sweets, you're saying it would taste bad? I have a hard time believing that to be honest.


    Yummy.

    They do. ACQUIRED TASTE is the term I believe.

    This isn't just about the poll or thread title, if you read.

    I love Diet Coke.

    Alot of people get confused with me liking Diet because it is a diet drink. I actually like how it taste more than a normal coke, or for that matter any other soft drink.

    Try it. And define 'bad'. A donut won't taste like a shit muffin if you eat healthy for a period, but it will be sickly sweet. I remember going back to whole milk from soy milk, it tasted so rich with fat that it was unpalletable for quite some time.

    I suppose much like exercising, it's all about starting and staying consistent with it. I just can't bring myself to give up soda. Has anyone managed to do it?

    I drink soda every few days or so but I'm not some fiend.

    When I game I usually drink coffee or Earl Grey, don't ask me why but I love Earl Grey.
