rethink the drink, seriously, bye


when you are thirsty you should drink water
thats what your body is programmed by nature to drink
to satisfy your thirst

if you get up and drink a latte then have a soda for lunch
then have a sweet tea for the afternoon then have a
ginger ale for supper
you have consumed close to 800 calories of sugar

do that for a month and youll get 24000 calories from
that means for you
fat on your behind and belly and thunder thighs

its this excessive sugar in many forms that is contributing to the
health problems in america
ie obesity
just look around its easy to spot

sugar comes in many forms
many times its hidden in the ingredient so us stupid consumers
wont know its there
heres some
high fructose syrup
fruit juice concentrate
corn syrup

honey sweety its all sugar no matter what you call it
it is what it is

heres some sugar calorie content of things you drink in 12 oz
fruit punch 198
apple juice 192
orange juice 168
regular soda 136
sport drink 99
bottled sweetened ice tea 135
bottled water 0
organicgreen doctors rainwater 0

drinking a regular soda every day for a year can make you gain
14+ pounds
stop drinking that soda and youll loose 14+ pounds
what if you stopped drinking all those sugar watered drinks everyday
how much would you lose
you do the math
could it really be that easy

just stop the sugar drinks and drink water
and lose weight

dont drink fruit juices
eat the fruit instead
youll get more nutrition and fiber that way

it really is simple to do

rick perry is thinking of running for president in 2016
hasnt he embarrassed us enough in this state
although he did provide a lot of material for the news and comedians
none of it good for him the state of texas or the republican party
surely he wont do it will he


well miss you
dick clark died
remember those days of watching him on american bandstand
got to see all those bands and singers
we didnt have the internet and all those cable stations
his show was watched by teenagers and young adults everywhere
and he did this for more than one generation
the show brought  all of us together with all of the new bands
miss you dick clark
