I LOVE Zevia! After reading Shane’s book, I went about eliminating most sugar and all artifical sweeteners from my diet. The one thing I really struggled with was giving up my Diet Pepsi. I tried lots of substitutes, but just missed that bubbly soda sensation. When I discovered Zevia, I was thrilled. It tastes just like real soda! Since substituting Zevia for my Diet Pepsi and adding cinnamon supplement, I lost 10 lbs in about a week with no other significant diet or exercise changes. It is now available in my grocery store too!
“Is natural soda now the growing cause of America’s expanding waistline?”
I don’t think it is… there are not enough people who drink this; it’s not like half the population is walking around fat because they drink Zevia. It’s a nice idea, but people who REALLY care about their health are not going to be addicted to this stuff… people like myself may drink it occasionally for a treat but know better than to drink it all the time (I have MS and I’m very careful about what I eat and am a self admitted “health nut). JMHO for what’s it’s worth!
….and now I need to listen to the interview and try some Zevia! I too am struggling to give up the Mountain Dew. I’m thankful there are better alternatives because it makes changing bad habits like this–that have taken a lifetime to establish–easier to implement.
I love Zevia too. A good clean, crisp taste and none of the side effects of soda.
Not sure when stevia was introduced to the US but it seems like I tried it first about 20 yrs ago. It was a powder then and boy, you sure had to be careful about not putting too much in. It was way sweet.
What’s cool today is that you can get flavored stevia and add a little different note to your usual smoothie. Zevia – I’ll give it a try
Surprised it took so long to for such a product to come out. I’ve been waiting for this. I’ve tried many flavors so far, all great. Excellent job working with the stevia. Would love to carry it at my store.
I have to drive about 110 miles to the closest stoer that sells Zevia , looked into it a few years ago when the company first introduced it to the market. Ive been using stevia for 15 years personally.
Shane i have 2 questions about your whey isolate , I read that the isolate form is not as good, since it doesnt help your body create glutathione, but i also read its better than regular whey protein, not sure if the information is true or not about the glutathione production.
also what source is the vitamin C from that you use in the whey product you sell?
thanks shane, and double thanks for your book i bought it about 6 months ago
Try ordering online. Cost is 24 for 27dollars.
I am not a fan of cola’s myself, I find that it would burn my throat and make me burp. But my husband loves his root beer drink, and I would like to buy Zevia for him to replace the root beer. Also, I find that most drinks taste better in glass bottles, such as beer, etc. Does Zevia come in or plan to come in a bottle also? This is really a wonderful creation for cola addicts to get there fix and not feel guilty about it. Thanks for getting the word out about this drink, Shane, keep up the good work.
Is this carbonated? I heard that when you drink carbonated beverages it blocks calcium absorbsion in the body.
Glad you enjoyed! More stuff to come. Thanks for your participation!
Zevia definitely is different at first, but it’s not a struggle to get used to it. It’s awesome. I love that I don’t feel my blood sugar surge after I drink one, or feel the chemical-induced headache after a diet soda. I love all the flavors, especially Dr. Zevia.
I’ve heard of stevia but had never heard of Zevia until this post. I dont drink soda pop very often but when I do I avoid diet because of the flat aftertaste. Does Zevia have that as well? I’ve never seen Zevia in the stores but will look for it.
Wow, what a timely post! I’m forwarding this to everyone, especially my extended family after a gathering last weekend where I kept getting asked “what’s that cola you’re drinking?” and “why don’t you just have a coke?” I was drinking Zevia, recommended by Shane in a post awhile ago. The taste is good, though a little different from diet pepsi or coke, but it doesn’t take long to adapt your tastebuds. Every no-sugar, organic change in our diet is a small victory that adds up, which we’re trying to educate our families about. Haven’t tried Dr.Zevia yet; that’ll be next.
