Coke… honestly

The idea of a Coca-cola anti-obesity campaign is so laughable it sounds like it should be a story in The Onion. Sadly though, it’s true.

Watch this fantastic video, a spoof of the actual Coke commercial, which speaks the truth about soft drinks and their contribution to the obesity epidemic as well as other health problems.

I think soda is by and large tastes pretty gross. The only sodas I do like are Root Beer and Ginger Ale. If I had to guess I probably have each of those one to two times a year.

If you don’t want to be obese here’s one thing you can do; don’t drink soda every day. Heck, don’t even drink soda once a week. If you like Coke, or any other soda, drink it once in awhile as a treat.

  1. Wow. I had NO idea that Coke had an anti-obesity program going on… and I’m kind of appalled by that, especially since everything in this spoof of their commercial is true. A few years back, I started cutting my consumption of soft drinks significantly, and while I cannot say that I have completely stopped drinking them all together, I only have them every once in a while as a treat. And I’m happy that I’ve made that progress. šŸ™‚ And a little jealous that you only like Root Beer and Ginger Ale.

      Don’t be jealous because while I’m not a soda drinker or a huge sweets eater, I can pretty much eat my weight in carbs!
