An 18% tax on soda would equal 5 pounds of weight loss according to researchers. I have written on numerous occasions about both soda and diet soda and the impacts on health and weight loss. At the Seattle hypnosis and Bainbridge Island hypnosis offices of Slender For Life™ clients learn self-hypnosis to end their desire for soda and to create a healthy new desire for water.
For several years I have talked about how it can take several weeks after stopping Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi for weight loss to occur. Aspartame seems to cause the body to retain fat and toxins.
Researchers found that a 10 percent price hike led to a 7 percent decrease in soda consumption and an 11.5 percent decrease in pizza consumption. More specifically when it came to soda, researchers reportedly found that a $1 increase in the price of soda resulted in an intake of 124 fewer calories per day. As a result, there was weight loss.
From that, the researchers suggest that an 18 percent tax on the price of soda would cause a person to consume about 56 fewer calories per day and lose about five pounds in a year. They say that could lead to fewer cases of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Read 18% Tax On Soda Equals 5 Pounds Weight Loss.
