According to Dr. Mercola, " One 20-ounce bottle of cola contains the equivalent of about 16 teaspoons of sugar in the form of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which will cause your insulin to spike within 20 minutes of drinking it.

Your liver responds to this insulin burst by turning massive amounts of sugar into fat, most of which is stored — hence the weight gain associated with a high-sugar diet."

Fruit Drinks Raise Diabetes Risk
 
Do you drink fruit drinks because you think they're a healthy alternative to soft drinks?
 
A recent study found that women who consumed two or more sweetened beverages a day were twice as likely as those who drank soft drinks to be diagnosed with diabetes.
 
Plus, sweetened fruit juices put on the pounds because they contain more calories.
 
What to do?
 
Drink unsweetened grapefruit or unsweetened orange juice.

WHAT SHOULD YOU BE DRINKING?

Plain old water, distilled or put through an under the counter reverse osmosis filtration system is the best. Be sure to drink 8-10 glasses a day to prevent constipation, muscle aches, headaches, joint problems, aid with digestion, heart action, thinking, and just about all other body processes. Drinking two glasses of water will even help reduce or eliminate pain!

Squeeze in some lemon and 3-4 drops of Sweeetleaf Sweet Drops, Stevia Clear. It has no calories and will lower blood sugar and blood pressure.

WHAT SHOULD YOU BE EATING?

Slowly switch to a plant based diet of fresh or steamed vegetables and fruits, brown rice, plain lowfat yogurt, cheese, saurkraut, nuts, seeds, and beans (black, adzuki, kidney, etc.), chickpeas, veggie burgers.

The fiber in a plant-based diet will lower you blood sugar, help you lose weight, and protect you against constipation, heart and other chronic conditions.

For snacks, carry rice or oat crackers with cheese or nut butters.

Other foods that will help regulate your blood sugar are berries (these will help with your vision too), brewer's yeast, cheese,
egg yolks, fish, garlic, kelp and sauerkraut. Go easy on the cheese; it's constipating.

Another way to obtain vital minerals that can help heal and relax tight muscles is to soak in an epsom salts bath (for whole body) or soak your feet or hands in a small tub or container that hold hot water and epsom salts. Refer to the label for instructions and amounts of salts to use.

You can also obtain high quality calcium by grinding the shells from baked or boiled eggs. Put them in a shaker and add them to the bottom of salads. The finer you grind the shells the quicker your body can use them to provide calcium. Choose eggs from free-range chickens and make sure the shells are brown and the yolks a golden yellow for the most calcium-rich experience.

WHAT KIND OF EXERCISE DO YOU NEED?

If you eat as suggested and exercise daily, you will lose weight and regulate your blood sugar. That means no sugar or diet drinks or foods, and no white bread or pasta.

One of the most revolutionary exercise programs, which is also fun and anti-aging is Classical Stretch, developed by Miranda Esmonde-White. You can find her on many PBS stations. If your doesn't cover her, ask them to and also go to her web site for some tips and information about purchasing her DVDs, which are not only helpful in getting your body into shape, but in a gentle way, but also are anti-aging and will make you look and feel many years younger.

Here is a link to some of her short videos: http://www.essentrics.com/mirandaeducationalvideo.html
