lowla, there is something you probably know, but it's interesting. The human body metabolize lemon juice as sugar, it convert it in sugar, and so many other substances and excessive fat.
Doctor recommend as an strategy to help with diabetes, lower your body mass and there is a detail that many people don't understand, you have to eat like a bird. And that means you should eat tiny portions here and there avoiding fats and sugars. Ideally I think they recommend five meals a day and exercise.
Contrary to all beliefs you don't need an expensive membership to achieve exercise, a comfortable pair of walking shoes will do the trick and the station mall has a one kilometer circuit, winter and summer.
See your Doctor.

Good morning everyone.

Lowla.. the best answer may be to not drink pop at all. I know that's not easy but that high-fructose corn syrup they use is bad stuff. Then you add in caramel colouring (cola) and artificial flavours which are linked to cancer.
As far as diet drinks are concerned, I've read in a number of studies that they are actually worse than regular because your body actually reacts as if it had sugar.

Maybe buy a Soda Stream machine and you can 'fizz' healthy drinks.

Good morning everyone.


I quit drinking diet coke for almost four years when I found out I was Diabetic,
My son told me it was not good for me, he said you can use it as a cleaner and wondered what it was doing to my insides.

Lemon Juice is a natural diuretic and flushes the toxins from our bodies, it has many benefits and it`s pure.

I still drink diet coke but it`s just a treat now.
Sometimes I make a drink of orange juice, tea and lemon.

dust2 1/31/2014 7:41:29 AM Report

all the rumors to diet sodas are false. they don't cause cancer and they don't case you to gain weight. your body doesn't react like you had sugar, your body is expecting sugar that it isn't receiving, so you crave food/sugar.

the stores of cancer/stroke/weight gain are all bs when it comes to diet soda. the cancer one started from a chain email created by a book author.
soowat 1/31/2014 8:03:43 AM Report

Mrs. SOOWAT was having weight issue, Her doctor advised her to drink a minimum of 10 (8oz,)glasses of water per day. This got rid of the hunger pangs and as something properly spaced out reduced the desire to nibble. She also started walking. At her size,walking to the end of the block and back was all she could manage at first. She gradually increased the distance to a substantial amount. End result was that after a year she was 50 lbs lighter.

Unfortunately all her years of being overweight put her in a situation where she had to have a knee replaced. Even more unfortunately, the operation was botched and the forced in activity contributed to a weight gain.

However, I recommend the water and exercise regimen as something that works

In the old days, I had a summer job at a bottling plant.The manager took me on a little tour of the mixing room.They had these huge stainless steel tanks where they poured in the concentrated "syrup" to be mixed with other ingredients in the formula before it entered the bottle filling line.
He showed me an empty tank that was severely pitted."That never happened before we started bottling diet soda", He remarked.I thought to myself at the time--"if that crap does that to stainless steel, then what is it doing to my stomach!!!!Never touched the stuff again.

Morning All..

Great Posts, and the best advice is Bobbys' to go see your doctor and find out. Weight is a problem and one that if possible addressed, however like all things it is easy to say and hard to do. I gained about 50Lbs when I quit smoking, cardiologist had suggested/demanded that I did that, then started to complain about my weight gain, damned if you do or if you don't...

Well another 4 inches of white stuff fell overnight, and the plow has not been along yet, however I have to go to town today driveway is cleared and will have to go out and do the top when or if the plow comes along in the meantime...

You all have a good day and TGIF...

My teenage days at A & W saw me refilling the pop mixer in the basement...

It used to eat through the tubing every year or so and make a mess. Since then I've never bought carbonated beverages except for guests.

Malloet, my dear piranha from the lake superior... how did you know I have a John Deere snowblower?

I have 60' frontage on one street and 80' frontage on the side street and I have to keep it clean... when the graders move the snow on the street there is a bank left blocking the entrance of about 2' on my frontage because I'm in a corner... and sometimes, like today, I can't remove the snow with the plow, it's just blower and blower and more blower.

Well, you're a mean spirited person and you are taking everything personal... This morning my snow blower had a flat.

That's not nice my dear piranha! ! !

You have no sense of humor and you can't stand a little joke.
Jimssm 1/31/2014 10:50:44 AM Report

I don't do my driveway until my wife complains she can't get the car into the garage OR Canada Post gives me a letter to say my delivery is stopped until I clean it... whichever comes first.... lol
Pink Peony 1/31/2014 11:08:40 AM Report

An upside to not getting home delivery from Canada Post is that we won't have to keep a path clear to the mailbox anymore!

Just slowly cut out the cream and sugar out of your coffee... you won't even notice it's gone.

... and it's so much easier when you don't need to find the cream or sugar.. no spoon needed either.
irishfey 1/31/2014 2:11:29 PM Report

Jimssm, you really know how to ruin a Gals day ,lol.. might try it though, thanks.. might just switch to Green Tea.. I heard thats good for you..... black coffee?? ugh! Did you not read the part that i like a " little coffee"" with me cream and sugar ? That"s where me problem lies ,lol....

Well, I`ll be the first to reply to the Act of Love.

So, are you saying you still get lucky?
It does has many benefits though.
It puts a smile on your face, It`s a natural pain reliever,
It makes you feel and look beautiful.
Keeps you limber, gives you energy, relaxes you, helps you sleep through the night and most of all, keeps you close and dear to each other.
Well, I have to say your`re both lucky,
because some ladies at a certain age couldn`t be bothered.
I should say some men are like that too.

Bobby Nerves 1/31/2014 2:42:52 PM Report

irishfey, you're OK with cream and sugar even a pinch of salt and pepper will set you good.

What you have to do now, is: Stop watching porno!

Unplug the TV altogether.

Bobby Nerves 1/31/2014 2:53:01 PM Report

Oh, then you're a movie star. I couldn't see well through the monitor.

Grab a coffee and tell us a storie.

There is cream and sugar there on the table. Make sure you leave the cream in the ice bowl.

Bobby, please thake your comments to the Blue room.. much more thought of there dear...
celeste5 1/31/2014 3:52:40 PM Report


Well, try something more than cuddling, like petting, pretend your`re a teenager, get the blood flowing, it helps, or will your husband be chasing you around house trying to corner you, LOL.

Actually a massage is very good before bed.

I`m in a good mood, when my sisters and I get together we talk like this a lot, we just laugh and laugh, we all go home with sore ribs.

I also find I look like crap in the morning... but it's been a lot better since I learned not to put my glasses on until I'm away from the mirror.
