A week sans Soda: The End.


As you all know, I attempted to drink just water for a whole week. The rules were simple. Nothing could not be consumed that was not water in any shape or form. No Juices, Milk, sodas, energy drinks, beer, wine... Jesus the list can go and on.

Here's my final report:

1) Did I feel any healthier?
No. Honestly. I felt exactly the same. The only effect this could have happened is that now I am more thirsty. I am drinking more water than usual. I also can actually give a shit if my Diet Coke supply is running low. My skin is another matter. It looks better than ever, trust me. It is more soft and pink. And trust me, I spend a fortune on face creams so I know it is all about the water...

2) How did it feel?
At first, easy breezy. Then... it got just boring. I have to say that I didn't suffer at all, didn't look at a soda or a juice and go berzerker wanting a sip. I did miss milk a lot.

3) Would I recommend this experiment?
Yes. In a second. It changes your drinking habits a bit. Now you suddenly think water when you are going out to eat instead of the usual Diet Something.

4) How much did I last?
I think it made it to 8 days. One day I said fuck it, I'm bored, and drank Diet Coke. At first it tasted a bit harsh, but then it just seemed usual. Now, I have not sipped anything sugary: Coke, Pepsi, Red Bull. I am still trying not to taste that until at least two weeks more. Let's see what happens after that.

So, there's that. Water is cool but boring. That's why God invented all other liquids. If you have any other interesting ideas let me know, I'll see if I can crack them.

Much love; from the now not so watery Me.

Not to split hairs, but "A week sans water" is exactly the opposite of what you're trying to convey here.

I'm sorry, but I think you need to include beer on your list. It's refreshing, calms you, and lowers your cholesterol. :)

Go two weeks without coffee

Duly noted and corrected my friend. You're right, the experiment was a week sans soda. That's what happens when you write at 2am... LOL.

Sorry Res... I seldom drink coffee. Only when it's less than 35 degrees! :-)

Try 7 months without wine! Holy moley, I'm going to bring a Merlot into the delivery room...
