I know I posted this one beforebut I thought I would dig it out again.  I am literally addicted to Coke Zero.  I just bought a 12 pack this weekend and it is almost gone.  It is either me or the kids drinking this stuff like it is going out of style.  I guess I just need to see this again in writing.  I am kicking ass on my plan.  Do I dare think that I will one day fit into a 7 again?? 😀

This is really an eye opener…Water or Coke?
We all know that water is important but,
I’ve never seen it written down like this before.
1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so
weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s
metabolism as much as 3%.
4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger
pains for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a
University of Washington study.
5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses
of water a day could significantly ease back and
joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy
short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and
difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a
printed page.
8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the
risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the
risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less
likely to develop bladder cancer.
And now for the properties of COKE:
1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol
carries two gallons of coke in the truck to remove
blood from the highway after a car accident.
2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and
it will be gone in two days.
3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into
the toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one
hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke
removes stains from vitreous China.
4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub
the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap
aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.
5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals:
Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble
away the corrosion.
6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked
in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.
7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into
the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and
bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished,
remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix
with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.
8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke
into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run
through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help
loosen grease stains.
9. It will also clean road haze from your windshield.
For Your Info:
1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid.
Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days.
Phosphoric acid also leaches calcium from bones
and is a major contributor to the rising increase in
2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the
commercial truck must use the Hazardous material
place cards reserved for Highly corrosive materials.
3. The distributors of coke have been using it to
clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years!
Now the question is, would you like a coke or a glass
of water?
Have A Great Day and Share It With Others



  1. strange thing is that ever since I was in basic training back in 1994 I can not get enough water to drink. I carry a one gallon water jug with me everyday at work. I empty that jug almost every day. That dont include the water that I drink while at home also.
    That being said I relate to most all of the things that are being said about people who dont drink enough water.
    Plus there is the Mt. Dew’s that I cant do without.

    CH…since I started to diet and exercise I am like a plant that needs water. It doesn’t hurt that I am living in the desert as well. Arizona can be a wee bit dry. I never liked diet soda until I discovered Coke Zero and now Vault Zero. That stuff is like crack to me. I am slowly but surely going back to my water. On a side note…I couldn’t comment on your blog so I will say that it is great to put a face to a name.
    Lisa…I am far from being the skinny bitch. 😀 I am smaller than most of the people that I work with and it seems that they are noticing that I am losing weight more these days. I guess it is because of the meat that I am eating…it upsets them for some reason. I guess it is because I am sticking to low carb while they are all struggling with their plans. I think your son is cute …saw the clip. I am so glad that you guys read my blog…I was starting to worry that I had lost all my readers to My Space. 😀
