Sounds yummy!

I know whenever I dine out I ask for a wedge of lemon for my water. Otherwise it's straight ol' H2O for me, no ice, no nothing. Doesn't matter if it's 90 in the shade and it's been sitting in the car all day or if it's ice cold...I'll drink ANY kind of water...except our tap water...ugh! Terrible sulfur taste from our well!

Every now and then I'll taste someone else's soda just to see if what my taste buds say and 99% of the time they give it a BIG TWO THUMBS DOWN!

So I'm sticking with my water for now!!

Don

...oh! in the morning I'll have a big cup of black coffee and I always make sure to have at least one plain green tea every day. Beyond that? Water water everywhere...lol!

and the diet stuff is no better...in fact the sweetners used trick your body into thinking something sweet is coming (calories) and when the 'calories' don't show up, the body starts looking for them in the form of appetite and cravings.
I was totally addicted to Coke Zero...diet coke too. I thought OK, I've given up all my crappy eating habits, I am not giving up my evil pleasure...diet coke. Until a sparks group I belonged to urged me to try.
It was MUCH easier than I thought...I hate water...but I tried this and have only had maybe three diet cokes in the last nine months...(only when I was out at dinner and still mostly water.) Here it is
I keep a one gallon pitcher of water in the fridge...to this I add one sliced orange and two sliced lemons (sometimes I squeeze in the juice of a lime, but never sliced, the rind makes it bitter soon) You can add water as you take it out..but really you need to trash it after two days and start again.
It worked for me...TRY it!

Why Are We Fat and Ill? The Answer's in the Coca-Cola:

Well, I must say, we've really managed to screw ourselves over in this country food-wise. Left and right there's tainted meat and salmonella-laced lettuce, BPA-lined cans and chemically enhanced food-like products that will give you "anal oil leakage."
Now there's evidence that the reason for our obesity epidemic is that something we consume a lot of at least 60 pounds a year is actively damaging our ability to stay healthy. Yes, my friends, apparently high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) alters our body chemistry, causing it to grow more fat cells around vital organs and to spark early stages of diabetes and heart disease.
The problem isn't just that we consume too much of the corny sweetener though surely we do it's that HFCS actually damages human metabolisms in ways that promote the specific problems we've got.
In a UC Davis study, sixteen volunteers ate a diet with high levels of fructose for 10 weeks, during which time new fat cells sprung up around their hearts, livers and other digestive organs and their bodies developed symptoms of impaired food-processing associated with diabetes and heart disease. The control group, on the same diet, but consuming glucose sugar in place of fructose, showed no signs of these abnormalities.
I thought the market was supposed to respond to consumers' demand, but since when did we all demand to be poisoned in eighteen different ways? I, for one, plan to think twice next time I feel like an ice-cold Coke.
