    Ok granted this is from Wiki ("Soft Drinks") so I wouldn't put too much stock in it. The real culprit may not be the soft drink per se but rather the lack of calcium in the diet. For many North Americans our largest source of calcium, certainly as childen is milk. The real problem is probably children/teenagers drinking sodas with their meals and not milk.

    There has been a hypothesis that the phosphoric acid contained in some soft drinks (colas) displaces calcium from the bones, lowering bone density of the skeleton and leading to conditions such as osteoporosis and very weak bones. However, calcium metabolism studies by leading calcium and bone expert Dr. Robert Heaney determined that the net effect of carbonated soft drinks, (including colas, which use phosphoric acid as the acidulant) on calcium retention was negligible. He concluded that it is likely that colas prominence in observational studies is due to their prominence in the marketplace, and that the real issue is that people who drink a lot of soft drinks also tend to have an overall diet that is low in calcium. (Source: Heaney RP, Rafferty K. Carbonated beverages and urinary calcium excretion. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2001,74:;343-347.)

    well, id cut sugar intake. high sugar stuff is empty calories anyway.

    learn to cook. this is a life skill. In the old days when we were cavemen, fighting and cooking went hand in hard---think about it :)

    someone mentioned chicken breasts. you can also make marinades,soups and sladas with little cooking skill. there are plenty of recipes online or invest in Betty Crocker. as long as you can measure and read they shouldnt b too hard.
    also we have some tutorials on sociocide for basic cooking (with pics) here:

    What does junk food really do?

    for one thing, try looking up diabetes.

    I'm guessing your guardians left you with money?

    Eat Subway.

    Or go to the supermarket and get a healthy frozen dinner (try those diet brands like Weightwatchers/Lean Cuisine/Jenny Craigs). Get some fresh fruits/veg to snack on.

    Easy.

    Read the book Fat Land by Greg Critser.

    We Americans are the fattest with the exception of a few South Seas Islands.

    I see many fat people in China and Taiwan in the past few years with the rise of KFC, McD's, etc.

    Junk food and especially all of the corn fructose and processed food crap are playing hell on a generation of future diabetics.

    Then again - I attribute my own slim build to a good case of worms AND a fairly healthy diet.

    Well. basically constant consumption of soda and junk food can lead to several health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, etc.

    I recommend Don't Eat This Book by Morgan Spurlock and his movie Supersize Me if you haven't seen it. Fast Food Nation is good too.

    Subway is a better alternative if you insist on eating out.
    Pop is shitty for you, I personally don't drink more than a few cans a month.Too much sugar, plus it dehydrates you which you don't want when you are training.
    Chicken and rice, pasta with chicken thrown in ..there are all kinds of easy ways to make yourself a half decent meal on the cheap. Try whole wheat pasta instead of regular pasta, it's much healthier and it is more filling. I don't even eat regular pasta anymore.
    You might as well learn to make a few dishes on your own now, while you are young. Cold macaroni salad with tuna and chopped veggies ( celery, carrots, corn) is good too. It's easy to make and you can prepare lots at once so you have left overs. Spice it up with cumin - it tastes great.
