    Soda

    Being high in sugar, this is the worst breakfast choice you could make. They will bloat you and slow down your metabolism.With no food in the stomach, this sugar travels straight to the bloodstream. Once sugar is in the bloodstream, it’s quickly distributed throughout the entire body, causing the blood vessels to widen and result in temporary feelings of warmth, temporary decrease in pulse rate, as well as blood pressure. It travels through the stomach, kidneys, lungs, liver, and then to the brain.
