A British woman who consumed 4 liters of Coca-Cola a day lost almost half her body weight after giving up the drink, according to a report.
Sarah Turner, 27, of Kingstanding, Birmingham, shed 112 pounds and dropped eight dress sizes after ditching sugar — 424 grams’ worth daily, Caters News reported.
The mom of three still doesn’t eat fruit and veggies, though.
“I was most definitely addicted to Coke. I could just drink it all day and not think about the effect it has on my body,” said Turner, who uses the Slimming World weight-loss program.
“I was always tired and had no energy to do anything, but now I can take my children out and run round in the park with them,” she said. “I have loads of energy. I love going out walking anywhere, whereas before I never did. I also enjoy actually going clothes shopping — now I can fit in normal-size clothes.”
She used to weigh 245 pounds and is now down to 126 as she follows the diet, which allows her to eat potatoes, baked beans and protein-filled food.
A spokesman for Coca-Cola Great Britain told Caters News that “all of our drinks can be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet and lifestyle” – noting the options of Diet Coke and Coca-Cola Zero.
