    Drink nothing but water for 30 days.

    This just a little something I'm doing, not really a new years resolution or anything.

    I consume a lot of mood food, usually impulse buys and it's usually Monster, coffee, soda, beer, liquor, stuff like that. So I'm taking a month to drink nothing but water. I do already drink plenty of water throughout the day, so for me this is more of about cutting out the crap than making sure I'm hydrated. The exceptions to the rule I make are 5hr energy, V8, and milk when it's part of food like a bowl of cereal.

    No soda. No alcohol. No fruit juices. No egg nog. Etc.

    Let's see how it goes.

    Good luck with that, Jerry. I always wondered about the results of that myself.

    So far I try my best to drink water at work with non concentrated lemon juice and when I'm restaurants I drink water with lemon in it.

    I can't wait to read your results.

    It may help to flavor that water with sugar free drink mixes that lack aspartame (like 4C). I gave up soda pop and sweetened tea completely that way. I still drink plain water to keep hydrated while I work but prefer flavored water at home.

    V8- watch the sodium

    I'd cut the 5 hour energy also.

    Nothing wrong with that, just don't go too heavy on the water. You can dilute your electrolytes to the point where you have problems.

    I stopped eating anything containing chocolate, and drinking carbonated beverages 30 years ago.

    Three years ago I became aware of the massive amounts of sugar infused into processed food products and began avoiding as many as possible.

    Meanwhile, I do stretching, calisthenics, and run.

    As a result, as of my recent comprehensive physical exam I have the blood pressure of a 20 year old (120 over 75); normal weight for a healthy male half my age based on height; and normal body chemistry statistics.

    The point is, start the process and stick to it; you will see benefits eventually.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
