I'm wondering because we switched my father-in-laws soda from regular coke to an organic 'real sugar' version of soda and he's drinking allot less... Like, from 12 a week to about 8 a week, with no nagging from us. It's also caffeine free, mmaybe... (more)
So, I started using baking soda for all of my cleaning, it's great stuff!! I even use it instead of shampoo. Now my drains are clogged with it, we had to dig the septic system up twice to unclog it, and it is clearly baking soda. Does anyone... (more)
Bad idea? I just went pale about five days ago. Up until then I drank redbulls and soda constantly. Figured I would quit the beverages first and then my pack a day habit. It seems like nicotine cravings have some sort of connection with blood... (more)
So I stopped using shampoo and soap. It has been a week and a half, and I have used baking soda and ACV every 3 days or so (I'm male with medium length, ultra fine hair) to deal with the intense greasy feeling in my hair. That 3rd day I wouldn't... (more)
I ran into something called "Zevia". And actually looks Paleo... enough. Lol. What do you guys think? Is there possibly any way to concoct a "Paleo soda"? Thanks. Zevia ingredients: Paleo...enough or not even close? http://www.zevia.com/cola (more)
I concluded that Coca Cola tastes great in 8oz servings with ice cube during a hot summer. Delicious and refreshing. Any more than 8oz and the popular flavors of sodas made by Pepsico and the Coca Cola Company begin to taste like the poisonous... (more)
Been following a strict VLC/ZC for a long time now but haven't kicked the diet carbonated drinks habit until recently. I usually drink 1-2 of them a day including diet cokes, diet red bulls, diet sodas. Kicked the habit this week and noticed a... (more)
I have been fairly well committed to Paleo since mid November, but I wasn't feeling as awesome as it sounded like I could whenever I read the blogs that inspired me. I FINALLY cut out artificially sweetened drinks and BANG, that was the problem.... (more)
I got a soda stream for Christmas. Agree about the flavoring...they are gross! But I love a good squirt of lemon juice. My other fall back is Kombucha. Thinking about brewing my own!
I get so bored on just water and coffee but will not drink soda. Today I got carbonated water, dumped out 1/4 of the can, and poured in a bit of POM juice. It is delicious and a great soda substitute. Sure the 1/5 cup of POM isnt the healthiest... (more)
I just discovered this: http://gawker.com/5960224/new-fat+blocking-pepsi-will-soon-render-all-non+soda-liquids-redundant I hate the food industry so much, but . . . What I hate the most about it is when they try to modify foods that are... (more)
I hate when they say "New improved taste". I just HATE THAT!!! How can taste be new and improved? Give me the old traditional lamb taste or... my iron level must be low. I am getting irritated.
Hi! New to Paleo but really trying to throw myself into it. I've a bit of a celebration this weekend and my go to drink is normally spiced rum and coke. I've read that rum is Paleo (enough to get away with) so I'm just looking for some... (more)
As the title says, I like Zevia and it seems to be a fairly naturally based product that shouldn't cause a crazy insulin response or dissolving your bones. But it isn't water or tea either so....? Drink it or not?
Does anyone know what can be done for the horrible desire to drink a soda? or at the very least some juice? I don't really like fruit so that isn't an option. Or where there is at least some somewhat paleo friendly juice? In addition does anyone... (more)
I'm weening myself off diet soda by drinking a lot of the Poland Spring sparkling water that has "mandarin orange essence.". No calories, carbs, sodium, etc. the ingredients are: spring water, natural flavors, CO2. My questions are: 1. Is this... (more)
Please only answer my question if you have constructive input (I know that NONE is the best answer. I know that it is bad for me. I know that there are better options). So if I am out with my friends and decide that I want a mixed drink (I dont... (more)
Ok, so I've been enjoying the benefits of a paleo-style diet for a while. I foray into more neolithic diet only in a few areas. The first of those is dairy. I do eat some fermented dairy (raw-milk yogurt, Greek-style), cheese (mostly hard... (more)
KeVita is a great option to traditional soda and works really well with the Paleo style diet and for anyone choosing vegan, dairy, lactose and gluten free foods. A Sparking Probiotic Drink, KeVita's packed with nutrients and a proprietary four... (more)
Hi all, I am wondering why baking soda has apparently been the cause of fatigue and lassitude I've been experiencing lately. I had decided to use it as a toothpaste substitute as I can't purchase any of the "special" toothpastes(such as TOm's of... (more)
Ok, I'm eating paleo, have lost a lot of weight without too much difficulty and more importantly feel much better, have introduced IF into my week, again with positive effects. However, I like diet coke. Not gallons but at least a can a day,... (more)
Hey guys, quick question. I am of the belief, as nearly all of you are, that sweeteners are not healthy. Insulin secretion, and a lot of chemistry I look forward to understanding but currently don't. Anyway, I was telling someone (not... (more)
Isn't Paleo about real food. Diet Soda isn't real food. I would suggest if you are sleepy get up and go for a walk outside in the fresh air and drink some water.
I've noticed recently then when I sit down to have a nice plate of warm turkey bacon, I get a strong hiccup on my first couple of swallows. This usually stops happening as I continue eating. Hiccups are not a normal thing for me, since I have... (more)
I have the same problem. I get one strong hiccup as soon as I swallow cold soda. sometimes food makes it happen too. Well, at least im glad to know that I'm not alone. I stay away from soda now, or drink it extra slow and careful.
I made my own soda tonight using sparkling water, lemon and lime juice, and powdered stevia. It tastes exactly like diet Sprite. I understand that plain ol' water is what all the cool primal kids are drinking these days but it's nice to have a... (more)
