I have said before that Paul's UPS job is hard work. And he used to drink gatorade every morning. He thought he needed it.
But, I started weaning him off Gatorade, because of its sugar content. I kept making it weaker and weaker, until he eventually said, "You might as well give me plain water, I can't stand this watered down stuff." Success! He has been drinking plain water for about two months. And, he has lost a lot of pounds.
Are you a product of advertising like we were? Let me encourage you to try to cut out the Gatorade. If Paul can drink only water doing hard work at UPS, and if we can drink only water while loading square hay bales... I think that water is sufficient! I just think our media propaganda has convinced us otherwise.
