In brief: Agree w Dr. Tucker.

Regular soda contain a huge amount of sugar. So when you ingest it - insulin is released & then your blood sugar levels drop down and you feel tired.
Regularly drinking soda has been linked to Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, Diabetes, heart disease & metabolic syndrome. Other possible risks include: increased weight, decreased bone mineral density (BMD) obesity, erosion of tooth enamel, caries

mineral depletion & dehydration. Increased caffeine in some sodas can ^ anxiety in people w anxiety disorders. If it contains artificial sweeteners & is used daily, this is linked to a 3 fold ^ in dementia & stroke.

In brief: Insulin crash

Probabaly the high spike in blood sugar is giving you a sudden crash after you have a compensatory Insulin spike.
In english, your blood sugar nose dives after the rush. Soda is not good for you. No healthy reason to drink a sugared beverage. Sorry, just the facts...
