Proper Use Of A Straw



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. :) - by HOTMAMI2010
