I know all sodas, especially Dew, do to the high sugar and caffeine content, are just rotten for your entire system (even for healthy people), but I love the sweet taste. In between each can of soda, I do drink a 10 ounce bottle of water, so my water intake is over 1200 ounces daily which is good.
*yes, I tinkle a LOT* lol I have an extremely high metabolism, without all the empty calories I get from soda I'd be struggleing to maintain a healthy weight. I'm a vegetarian and my meals are very nutritious, I only eat organics and I take multi vitamins daily.
With my meds, I feel fairly well daily.
Of course, like anyone else I do have flares and "bad days" but that's to be expected with fibro, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus - among other ailments. I'm a devout Christian, hopeless neurotic cleaner, perfectionist, mother of 2 young girls, wife, volunteer, caregiver for my grandpa who has stage 4 cancer, love to be as active as I can, and so on.
My motto for my life in coping with my maladies is "I try". That's the best I can do, try.
