The way I drink is probably the main reason I'm not in good physical condtion.
Every once in a while I get health conscious, then I'll drink 1 gallon of water a day, and maybe a bottle of that watered-down gatorade (propel).
Other than that, it's usually between 1 and 3 liters of coke a day, which keeps me going despite the fact that I only eat 1 or 2 meals a day, and
they usually aren't that big.
When the coke gets me so dehydrated I can't take it anymore, I'll get Arizona ice tea or gatorade.
Then every few weekends I'll actually DRINK. Usually Makers Mark, though if I'm getting Chinese food, Smirnoff Ice goes well with that, then I
switch to whiskey later.
Obviously a corona now and then if I'm eating Mexican, and if I hit a concert I'll usually start with Jack Daniels and switch to budweiser later,
basically in the name of getting drunk economically
(I generally say that if you haven't got enough money to drink the good stuff you haven't got enough money to be drinking at all, but it's
different when you're paying 4 bucks for a beer and 7.50 for a jack and coke)
I've resolved to get back on water and stay on it this summer. God knows if I could just do that I'd probably start eating reasonably and lose 20
pounds before I even knew what hit me. The sad fact is that caffine and sugar ARE habbit forming- you don't fiend for them when you're off, but have
just one coke and you'll want 2 more before the days over, etc.
