POP Goes the Weasel….What are you pouring down your gullet?

August 1st, 2014 No Comments Tags: , , , , , ,

So a study came out a little while ago touting soda pop’s help with weight loss. Guess who sponsored the research? Those who follow me have heard me recommend eating your calories rather than drinking your calories, as explained in Skinny On Slim, The Little Black Dress of Diet Books. True! I made that transition in my journey decades ago from regular pop to diet. In time I thought about what I was pouring down my gullet more deeply, hmmmm. Now I keep it simple and sip on water all day. But that’s just me…

Let’s take one step back on food and drink and remind ourselves that there is more to our food than simply the calories. Food contains macronutrients – protein, fat and carbohydrate and a myriad of micronutrients from Vitamin A through zinc all needed to help our “body as temple” function optimally.

Notice I used the word “food”. Brown bubbly fluid chocked full of sweetener and caffeine concocted by a chemist to tailor a bliss point just right to tantalize your tastebuds made in a great big vat in a factory isn’t food. Not to mention the addictive qualities of this. For some being hooked on it may make it doubly difficult to kick the habit when you feel your body crave for something so unnatural. Get hooked on phonics, or love perhaps!

So folks treat your body as a temple the way it was meant to be treated. Be mindful of every sip, nibble and nosh that goes into your pie hole. It all ends up in each and every cell of your being in no time…
