    I love Margaritas so I will have to give this a try. When you buy the sparkling water, is there anything in the ingredients that you need to watch out for? I am a huge soda drinker and get tired of drinking water. What other things can you drink to substitute for the sweet soda cravings?

  2. Adam Farrah says:

    Hey Chris,

    Sparkling water tends to be just water, CO2 and “natural” flavors. It’s not really sweet or flavorful though. It’s just got a very mild flavor to it.

    Just be careful of any stuff like artificial sweeteners or – obviously – actual sugar or corn syrup.

    As far as the soda cravings, you’ve got two issues there – caffeine addiction and sugar addiction. They really ARE “cravings” too. As in, addictive ones. The best option there is to just get yourself Paleo and get off the caffeine/sugar. At the least, try and gradually reduce your soda intake and replace it with water.

    Hope that helps!


  3. Our ancestors ate a varied diet according to what was available during
    the changing seasons and different areas of
    the world. – When all the oil is incorporated and the mayonnaise is thick, add the rest of the lemon juice and taste
    your creation. Excellent health of our ancestors was due to the use of natural foods like the wild plants and animals in their food and these foods are now termed
    as the paleo recipes, paleo food, Stone Age or Paleolithic food.

    Author is an online researcher on recommended weight loss.
    Hence, fitness trainers recommend you to have at least 8 hours of sound sleep for healthy body.

    Pick an excellent plan that first preaches healthy eating and 3 to 5 meals
    a day. If you combine 25 to 45 minutes of exercise no less than
    three times weekly your metabolism will continue to be active and
    you may burn off extra calories. Well that was the prevailing thought, however, the final results
    were not even close to successful, with only minimal weight being lost.

  5. Most of the games are indie titles but there are a few notable ‘normal’ games including the previously mentioned Final Fantasy III
    and Sonic 4 Episodes 1 and 2. You have to first make sure you can connect multiplayer server.
    Also, beware the legalities of Emulation, you could be breaking the law.

  6. I do not even know how I ended up here, bbut I
    thought this post was good. I don’t kmow who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger
    if you aren’t already ;) Cheers!
