i say balance is rational. i get sugary pop, & then i'll get seltzer. there's veggies/fruits in my fridge. there's also very marbled steak. i use butter. also use healthy oils, as in olive oil. cholesterol, sodium, fat, sugar, & carbs reside here. you'll find balance in my kitchen. i won't allow caffeine & that's the sum of things.
btw- my b.p. is now usually 90/60-70. they were using an adult cuff to take my b.p. when they're supposed to use a kiddo 1- i have teensy arms.

I don't think we've had soft drinks in the house since our daughter left for college two years ago. And I can't remember the last time I had one in a restaurant either.

I've often wondered why they are called "soft drinks", since the phosphoric acid in them will strip the enamel right off your teeth over time.

The biggest thing to keep in mind if consuming a lot of sugar is not to eat a lot of carbohydrates at the same time.

They both break down into sugars in the body so both is a double whammy diabetes waiting to happen.

Stevia helps your body deal with sugar as well as sweeten food.

Stevia does not help your body deal with sugar...

There is some truth to this PF. Research has been done that proves that Stevia is anti-glycemic, it helps stabilize blood sugars, increases insulin resistance and may even promote insulin production. The same can not be said about other sweeteners though.

Increasing Insulin resistance is NOT a good thing, Snip.
