Since I’ve drank a soda of any sort, full octane, diet or otherwise. Instead I’ve been drinking water and green tea. Same thing, really. I’m avoiding Sugars, HFCS, and the chemicals used in diet sodas. So how do I feel?
By the way, I’m also avoiding big doses of meats, especially red meats. Burgers, Steaks, and… God help me… Bacon.
Generally speaking, I feel – sort of – better. But I’m not riding a wave of granola eating, sandal wearing great awakening or enlightenment of greater health. It’s not really helped my legs or feet, and it’s made me feel biter, angry, and somewhat depressed. Last Sunday, for the first time in years I had no pain. Nothing hurt. It felt strange and wonderful. Monday morning, I woke up with all the pain I missed the day before. Still hurts.
You know what I could really go for right now? A Mountain Dew and a Meat Lover’s Pizza.
