Yeah but your swamp drinks/smoothies have sugars in them.....

I drink Ice tea (no sweeteners) all day myself but a couple times a year will have a Coke just for the heck of it

If you mean my juicing, sure there is sugar in fruit, but the amount of fruit vs amount of vegetables in a juice is very, very tiny. Juicing is one of the healthiest things you can do.

I have had a fair amount of banana smoothies. Just banana, and sometimes water, sometimes no water, depends on my mood. Obviously bananas have a decent amount of sugar in them, but I am not on a no-sugar diet, I am just trying to eat healthy. Bananas are one of the best foods you can eat.

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

If they stay in the health care business and they tell you what to eat, how will that be monitored? Just asking

They couldn't now....but maybe in the future when everyone is implanted with tracking/ID chips the chip may also monitor your blood to determine your sugar levels and cholesteral and so on....

For the record, I haven't had anything other than water to drink this entire year

@Big Mike,

How about that pina colada on your dream island?

If it wasn't for Donald Trump, Michael Bloomberg would be the most annoying person in the country if not the World.

Trump is just a blowhard and has no power over anyone and doesn't tell people how to live thier lives, Nanny Bloomberg however does have power over people and does tell people how to live thier lives.

Bloomberg = bad
Trump = whatever

How about drinking lots of water? It's good for you, fills you up and curbs your appetite.

Okay, so give me a Big Mac, Super sized fries and TWO cokes. This is ridiculous, so are they going to put a limit on how many cokes you can buy per day? Or is this a way to get more tax revenue by having to buy more smaller sizes? I don't personally drink that much soda myself. @ Eric said cigarettes at $10 per pack hasn't stopped people from smoking. It seems like more people than ever smoke. The smell makes me nauseous, yuck!

We need to overhaul the nutrition facts label in this country.

The emphasis on calories is worthless. People shop by calories, and pay no attention to actual ingredients.

Acid is probably low in calories. So it would have a great nutrition label for a soda, because it can get you to the magic low calorie number. Too bad it will kill you when you drink it.
