Re: So what do you drink...

I don't pay much attention to what I eat or drink during the wedding, but there is one sure thing: beer afterwards.

My problem was the American diet. I had way too much sugar in everything I ate and drank. The problem with sugar is that it's addictive. When I was hungry or tired, I had to fill myself with sugar in order to feel better...not a good sign. My doctor gave me a treatment plan to cut the sugar and simple carbohydrates, and replace them with protein. It worked!! Today, my blood pressure is 117/68, cholesterol is 180, I lost 10lbs, and my blood glucose is normal. All this happened without medication, and just because I cut sugar from my diet. The bad drinks for me: all sodas, including diet drinks, energy drinks, sports drinks, alcohol, and fruit juice. Good for me: water and green tea. Have you ever been so hungry that you felt weak? That doesn't happen any more once I substituted sugar with protein.

Yes, or a nice glass of Macallan.

Congrats Warren, I'm overweight too, sugar is a toughy, I like tea and coolaid. That's awesome news for you.

Re: So what do you drink...

Thanks Steven! I had to make the change because I learned that diabetes, loss of eyesight, kidney failure, and heart disease goes hand in hand....it scared the crap out of me! How good of a videographer would I be without eyes?? The promising thing is that diabetes 2 is reversible, simply by changing your diet and exercising more. The good news for me was that I caught it before it started, and I began to see significant changes in just 2 weeks.

The bad news is that young kids in the U.S. and U.K. today are diabetics, something we haven't seen before. Watch your intake of sugar, everyone! Sugar can kill you! Here's a great article about sugar:
9 Reasons To Avoid Sugar As If Your Life Depended On It | Popular Science

If anyone is interested in the diet plan my doctor gave me, I would gladly share it with you!

Re: So what do you drink...

I used to take water but I find sports drinks such as Lucozade Sports are far more effective. I can get through 6 or 8 on a hot mid-summer all day job but 3 or 4 is more normal and just 1 in the winter. They are not fattening - not according to the calorie count on the label anyway.

Remember your body does need salt on those hot sweaty days.

Warren, there's no tradition of eating out several times a week in the UK, or of manufacturers pumping up the fat and sugar levels of processed food to anything like the same extent as in the USA so we have a headstart in that sense.

Haha, yep! Yuengling brother.. j/k. I typically drink sprite at wedding & in real life when getting a soda, tho I don't drink much soda. I do like to place a beer in the fridge for when I get home. Gives me a little something to look forward to & celebrate.

If you have a chance, please take a look at this documentary that was produced in the UK. Very informative, and what it contains may surprise you...it sure surprised the heck out of me!

Yes, I forgot that part. During the hot summer, I'll often have a V8 with me for the salt. Maybe a sports drink.

Yep I saw that on terrestrial TV Warren. Fascinating. They've also made a "the men who made us thin" - an expose of the diet industry - but I haven't watched that one.

Re: So what do you drink...

In the morning before I leave for the wedding, and after a breakfast of either pancakes with eggs and sausage or waffles with bacon on the side, I make a double espresso with a shot of sambucca.
I always carry 4 bottles of water in a plastic bag, one bottle was frozen overnight. That is just to keep the other 3 cold throughout the day. When I get back in, a triple shot of bourbon on the rocks makes me sleep tight and stay warm.
