In brief: How big of a soda?

Drinking one soda each day should not hurt anyone.
But are you talkin about big gulp? Then you could adversly affect your health. Sugar soda in a can is 12 oz. Of empty calories. No nutrition provided. Every 20 that you drink will cause you to gain a pound of fat unless you increase your activity level to balance those empty calories. Walking a mile will do the trick.
