What’s tickling your gum?

Yesterday, I read Julia’s fitness blog  The one with the artificial sweetener… where she talks about not having had pop/soda/soft drinks (whatever tickles your gum) for a while.

It reminded me that I haven’t had any either since I started on my healthy eating crusade. You may remember my blog on  5 Foods for February. I have been focusing on eating more healthy and working toward a flatter tummy this month.

I didn’t even notice I ditched soft drinks. There wasn’t even a plan around this. It just happened. As I moved more toward whole foods and organic, the soft drink aisle was just not in my path. I remember when I had a Diet Cherry Coke last, it kept me awake all night.

So accidentally, I started pop/soda/soft drink anonymous. 🙂

It seems better not drinking fizzy drinks even for running. I feel much less bloated (maybe the flax-seed helps, too) and the thought of a Diet Coke with or without cherry does not tickle my gum anymore…

The health of people is really the foundation upon which all their happiness and all their power as a state depend.

  1. Hii, I’m Sandi, and I’m a recovering Diet Coke drinker…

    I also found myself drinking less and less Coke Zero as I got further into my diet program. The last time I had one was when on vacation at home in Florida earlier this month… What with getting in a minimum of 2 liters of water a day, there simply isn’t time. I use to consume 3-5 cans a day!

    I don’t miss it… one bit!
