As opposed to the soda you are drinking, which has unnatural chemicals in it. That's lots healthier. :P

The difference is between adding sugar or not. Most juices have it added.


Then you look for those that don't. :P

Read my other posts.

I have. They tend to be very expensive and have very short shelf dates.

I used to be the type that drank more juice then pop, but then noted the contents and stopped. I mostly drink coffee or tea or water. Pop is with evening meals or tv at night.

I checked out a ton of juices back in the day and found many to have claims of no sugar... to be lies as they were only speaking of added, not the concentrate... which concentrates the natural sugars as well... which is not good either.

Fresh squeezed is the safest... but also the most expensive.

I had the surgery. :P

As a result, I just get full on small portions of food.

As a result of that, if I don't want to feel sick all day, I have to choose what those small portions are, preferably protein-rich.

Drinking soda isn't even a consideration, I drink it once in a while (and drink full-sugar, I don't like the chemicals), but we're talking half a glass and not with meals.

And we try (when we can afford it) to eat natural foods. For instance, we made our own peanut butter yesterday. But that can get tough/expensive feeding a family of five.

Once I started losing weight it became possible for me to actually like, be active and stuff, so I can get exercise.

So all that stuff together, but I really needed the surgery to kick things off, retrain my body and mind to not want to eat huge portions of awful food.

And when I do eat something awful, it's like, half a cheeseburger.

I learned that fries are unnecessary as a side dish to meals at restaurants.

Etc. etc. etc.


cuz of the peanut butter fiasco you and Amy had, amirite?

If you have to worry THAT much about it, you may as well drink nothing but water. :P

But not tap water!

And if you're using well water, better get it tested!

And make sure you replace the filter on your refrigerator's dispenser regularly!

And... :P

That photo is of fruit flavored pastilles, or tiny little candy tablets like chicklets.

NOT a beverage. You fail at google.

(Note the weight too, 2.5 grams. If it WERE a drink--which it's obviously not--that'd be like half an ounce or something.)

I didn't type "pastilles", that's for sure.

Like I said, perhaps you guys shouldn't be drinking flavored stuff, period, since there's so many hazards involved. Image

(I'm not in that part of the convo, for anyone keeping track I drink a lot of water, coffee, and tea.)

Pastilles are uniformly kind of disgusting, they taste like a pill made of perfume. People used to use them to combat bad breath before there were all the more modern products available (and gum chewing was thought of as a bad habit by many).

I first learned of them as a kid reading Chandler, Phillip Marlowe knew a cop named Lieutenant Victor "Violets" Magee. Then I bought some and YUCK! The violet ones taste like you're eating flowers.
