how sweet it its


when i was growing up my mother use to make
sugar syrup whenever we ran out of regular syrup
for our pancakes and homemade biscuits

she would boil water and add sugar to it
to get this clear sweet sugary syrup

it was good on homemade biscuits or pancakes

(why is sugar white anyway
i googled that
whoa that doesnt sound healthy-phosphoric acid
sulfur dioxide calcium hydroxide
maybe i want mine brown from now on)

so i tried to mix up sugar water
i took 10 tsp of sugar and added it to 12 ounces of rainwater
(at least the rainwater is good for you)

no matter how hard i tried i couldnt get it to all go
into a clear solution
was nature trying to tell me something

so i thought
what would happen if i drank that 12 ounces of sugar water
every day for a year
what would happen

lets see
10 tsp of sugar every day
that would equal about 3 lbs of sugar a month
35 lbs of sugar a year

how many lbs would i gain in a year if i drank this
sugar water or sugar syrup if i could get it all in solution
and didnt burn off the calories

i would gain 15 lbs in a year

well how many calories are in that 12 ounces of sugar water
theres 130 calories
if i drank this solution and then went for a run
how far would i have to run to burn off all those calories

40 minutes

so what if you filled a quart jar with this sugar water and drank
it every day
thats 400+ calories a day 200,000+ calories a year
thats over an hour or two of running a day to burn those calories off
you do the math for the weight gain in a year time
hint multiply 15 x 4

so guess what ill do is just not drink that sugar water but
instead will drink my pure rainwater

if you dont want to no mix this solution yourself
just drink a coke or soda a day
worse drink a big gulp a day

but either way plan time for running or
get a much bigger belt

maybe mr bloomberg knew what he was doing
why is coke doing all those healthy ads now
feeling guilty huh
