Updated on November 2, 2012

Not "out in the cold" but "in with the cold."

How to not stay "hot under the collar."

TIP FOR THE DAY: Here's a 2 for 1: if your goal is some weight loss, here are two steps you can take today. (1) eliminate as much sugar as possible, especially the liquid kind (sodas and other beverages which are not 100% fruit juices or water;) and (2) locate water bottles where you typically spend significant portions of your sip during the day (it will stave off the temptations of some hunger pangs which are no more than actual thirst signals)...and try to make those handy water supplies COLD. Now doing so could mean rotating the water back and forth to a refrigerator, or watering a nearby plant when it has warmed and is no longer cold. Cutting out sugars importantly eliminates those "empty calories" and allows the good calories which come along with the good nutritious foods the body actually needs. Proper hydration, besides eliminatng some of those false hunger pangs, helps clear and hydrate the body's internal equipment. Drinking that water cold, means that the body will warm it to an average of 98.6 Fahrenheit by "burning" some of those fat calories you are trying to bid goodbye. Try this 2 for 1. It works, a tool in your arsenal; getting you further along toward your goals for fitness.

      funny you mention Stevia in soft drinks etc. We bought some penny stock for stevia in other products....It would be a great addition as it is highly alkali which is a good thing. Obesity is a major issue today as you well know. You can cut the sugar out of ads but you an't stop moms from buying sugar produts.

      The newer Stevia, which has no licorice-like aftertaste, and no glycemic index, is a wonderful supplier of the sweet taste of sugar which by now most Americans crave. The sugar lobby has fought its wider use for years, but has only succeeded in keeping it out of manufactured items, including soft drinks, cakes, cookies, cereals, and the other store aisles of sugary "stuffs". Frankly, if we wanted an immediate turn-around on childhood obesity, we'd defy the lobbyists and allow its use by manufactuers. That's another thing a "right thinking Congress and president could do tomorrow. As for hydration, by the time you know you are thirsty you are already under-hydrated.

      Hydrating is good for diets but also just general good health. Getting dehydrated is very dangerous and sometimes we are not warned by thirst. So you say it right on...and of course eliminating sugar is always a good idea.
