Another study suggests that replacing sugar-laden drinks with water has a dramatic impact on the amount of calories kids consume and may help in the fight against childhood obesity.

The study reveals the social, mental and physical benefits of social dancing for older people and also suggests that dancing staves off illness, and even counteracts decline in aging.

    You also take Herbalife vitamins in the morning and evening, and drink a hunger-reducing tea. You should add sensible snacks throughout the day like carrots, an apple, a few baked crackers, almonds, or low calorie protein bars. Being very faithful and sticking to this program, you will notice a change in your pounds and inches within a few weeks.

  3. I like what you wrote! Some remarks on sweet drinks and obesity:
    Just look at the label of any soda to see 27 grams of sugar per 8 fl oz serving. I know a lot of people (we all know them as well), who daily drink a large bottle of Coca-Cola. 10 servings = 270 grams of sugar! That's over 800 empty calories as high fructose corn syrup! Just a little math and a little imagination to see the effects of such madness.
    I wish you that some people have grown to love the water after reading your post! It would be a few less obese people among us.
