How one soda per day makes you fat

If you are like most sedentary Americans who do not walk at least 30 minutes per day, one soda/day can make you fat. By regularly drinking just one can of soda and living a sedentary lifestyle, you will likely gain fat. How much fat will you gain?

One can of soda/day = 150 calories x 365 days/yr divided by 3500 calories/lb is 15.6 pounds of fat per year. On the other hand, if you stop drinking one soda/day, you can lose 15.6 pounds of fat a year. However, if you consume more than one 12-ounce can of soda/day, you can gain a lot more.

Consuming a 20 oz bottle of Cola-Cola/day (or other soft drink) equates to gaining 26 pounds of fat per year. Furthermore, if you stop drinking two 20 oz soft drinks/day, you could lose over fifty pounds of fat a year!
