Carbonated drinks or sodas are one of your worst enemies. They can mess up everything, from your blood sugar levels, and skin, to your hormones and mood. Forget the marketing and the labels that say it’s good for you or it contains vitamins or nutrients. All it has is a bunch of sugar, food dyes, and preservatives. And sugar-free versions are no better as they’re packed with harmful artificial sweeteners. Buy a blender or a juice maker and make your own juice. And if you miss the bubbles, you can always add your homemade fruit juice to some sparkly water.

07. Wheat

Wheat contains a carbohydrate that suddenly and greatly increases your blood sugar levels. This triggers high insulin production and weight gain. Over time, your pancreas will become overworked and you’ll become insulin resistant, and then you can get diabetes. And high blood sugar levels trigger the production of compounds that speed up the aging process and give you wrinkled skin. So you’ll age faster and be prone to diabetes, which in itself is a big issue.
