Proper Use Of A Straw


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Have you ever noticed that when you use a straw, you end up drinking more? I definitely have.

My rule is that I can use a straw any time I'm drinking water (or other healthy drinks). Anything else and the straw is forbidden.

    just a little side note, drinking from a straw can cause bloating...we usually inhale extra air when using straws.
I try not to use straws as much as I can but sometimes I have to. :/ I definitely like your little secret. :)

    This is SO true! I know it was with pop, for sure! I never thought about drinking my water that way- thanks!
