It's all about saving money and getting healthy.

  • by Dot Martin

    Everyone wants to save money these days. Here is a suggestion that could save you starting right away –today-and give you some extra to spend on that rising dollar amount at the “pump.”

    You need to stop taking the vitamin and mineral supplements that are supposed to be making you healthy and wise. Forget the “wealthy” part. If you are drinking even one drink per day with carbonated water in it, the vitamins that you take are being washed right out of your body with ever swallow. Never mind the ones that you paid those hard earned dollars for, because included in the mix is what ever nutrients are left in your veggies, fruits and meat after they are cooked.

    We all know what drinks have carbonated water, don’t we? That would be your soft drinks, sodas, pop and includes the name brands that they often go by.

    It is no wonder to me that a large percentage of Americans are over weight starting with our children. Our food is a “waste-line”. Add to that the dirty air we breathe, chlorinated water we drink, pills we take and sugar we eat, how does anyone get to be 50 years of age these days?

    Well, enough of the doom and gloom. There are substitutes for the carbonated thieves.

    It is a well-known and recommended statement by the medical profession that every man, woman and child should be drinking WATER. That would be an 8 ounce glass 8 times a day. If you switch to the water, you will have little room for anything else. But tea, coffee, fruit juice and other drinks that you may prefer can be used in addition while you are drinking all that water. The money you were spending on vitamins will now be much cheaper than what you are spending on soda. I know how it feels to go thru “Coke” withdrawal. I was once a “6 packer” per day Diet Coke junkie. You don’t have to go thru rehab to recover and once they are out of your life, the addiction fades to nothing.

    Remember “Man does not live by bread alone”. Water is a vital part of life.
