Why you should be drinking water.

June 5, 2008

Well, the reason you should be drinking water, rather then your favorite drink that isn’t water, is that water is better for you then any other drink.

Water has 0 Calories and in fact burns calories, Any liquid other then water that you drink will contain at least a few calories. Even if your in great shape, as a tricker you need to have as little weight on you as possible, because your going to have to throw whatever weight you have into the air. And, you need to get your calories from foods which contain other things you need a lot of, like protein.

Aside from that, the reason drinking fruit juice, for instance, will quench your thirst, is because it has water in it. So, what has more water in it then actual pure water? when your eating/drinking think of this, food+water=energy. If your body doesn’t have enough of either it won’t be able to produce the maximum amount of energy.

In addition to this there are few drinks other then water that don’t have HFCS in them. As i recently noticed, even frozen fruit juice is totally loaded with the stuff.

So the long and short of it is, when you need to drink something nothing is as effective as water is.

Food Busters I:Milk, Should you be drinking it?

February 27, 2008

Well, I’m pretty sure that most people think milk is really good for you, and in some ways, they would be right. However, if you are an aspiring tricker, or a serious athlete of any kind, you might want to avoid drinking too much of it. Milk is known to be an anti-performer, it’s hard for your body to digest it (particularly non-organic milk), and it can even temporarily stop intestinal function, naturally this is in large quantities like, for instance, 8 glasses a day. If you really much have your milk to survive, make sure you drink organic milk, and don’t drink it before a workout. Small amounts of organic milk CAN be very good for you, but it is still an anti-performer so it’ll slow you down if you drink it before tricking, working out, or any other sport.


EDIT: This information is a little out of date and un-informed. So take it with a grain of salt please. My opinion now, is drink only organic milk, and only after work outs. other then that, it’s fine, although I don’t like it myself. ^_^
