With the latest report on the damage drinking diet soda can do to the body, I’m please to report that I essentially gave up my 30-year Diet Coke-a-day habit about five months ago.
Sure I still partake of the cola-colored-carbonated beverage now and again – but it’s no longer “my thing.” Come to think of it, there are many things that are no longer “my thing,” some by choice, some not. But that’s perhaps another blog on another day.
Today, I rest easy knowing that when at work, dining out or at home, enjoying that meal with a healthy glass of water is the best choice I can make. Hydration, afterall, is one of the most critical components to having a healthy, fit, working body. In fact, if your pee is anything but a really light yellow, you’re probably not drinking enough water. And if you can smell the coffee or asparagus or whatever you last ate in your pee, you’re body is screaming for hydration.
So drink up people. And while you’re at it, save your money and screw buying the bottled water stuff. There’s more plastic in our world than Al Gore could shake a stick at requiring recycling, which uses up additional resources. Instead of buying a Dasani, dispense your next glass of deliciously cool water directly from your tap at home. And enjoy!
