I made millions through lottery spells with the help of Doctor Odunga. I contacted Doctor Odunga through his email: firstname.lastname@example.org to perform a spell for me to win the Powerball Lottery in Florida. After I contacted him, he replied to me and said I should only pay $200 for the spell and I should trust in him. It was hard at first to let my money go but I had to keep faith. I was surprised when he gave me the winning numbers to play the Saturday Powerball Lottery. I bought the ticket and truly speaking, the winning number emerged the Powerball numbers and I was the winner of the lottery. I won $1,203,834.00 USD as the Powerball Lottery Winner. I am very happy to share this testimony of Doctor Odunga and want you too to meet him at his email: email@example.com OR Whats app +2348167159012
10/15/2020 TODAY'S TIP
Last Saturday evening the nearby resort held a family movie night by the beach. And in the process I made an interesting discovery. No Popcorn!
That's not the discovery. The discovery was when we were watching the movie, sans mays praecox, we drink less. Well obviously that's dew to the lack of melted butter and SALT. HASAH.
When we go to a sit down restaurant what is the first item served? A nest of SALT incrusted loaves of bread (that could be salted by a cheese topping also). And following the starter bread...Alcohol.
What about when we go to a tailgating party or our favorite bar? What is plopped before us. A basket of SALTY snacks.
Ok here's the deal. Sort of/ When relaxing or celebrating we will repeatedly reach for the salty smacks before reaching an extra few inches for the nutritious snacks. Fruits and Vegetables.
Then following that Sodium Smooch we assume we are parched sooooo? We will drink more empty liquid calories.
Now movie theatres, restaurants, and bars do it to pad their bottom line. HOWEVER, when we do it all the Salt/Alcohol cycle does is pad our bottoms.
Dining out can kill your hard-earned weight loss wins—and so can boozing too hard.
To stay on track with your better-body goals, order your glass of wine or cocktail near the end of your meal. That way, the sweetness can act as a faux-cal dessert.
Plus, it won't lower your inhibitions before your meal. Which may prompt you to nosh on something unhealthy off menu.
So thankful nothing came from my younger years of drinking. Even then could not stand the taste of wine , or beers. Would tolerate something else for a while then react violently to it. Many factors had me stop. Most important one getting back to church and my God. Discovered that I am allergic to it.
good info for people that drink (I have not had a drink in many years)
I'd rather eat my calories than drink them!
Good need- to- know information, thanks!
Of course, my favorite Margarita is one of the highest calorie drinks.
this makes me evaluate my drinking. I used to drink red wine, 1 - 2 glasses with cheese & crackers every night. the alcohol makes the snack go straight to fat? I recently changed to scotch & water, but still snack. I didn't see whiskey on the chart. ??
i have more than the occasional drink... during winter months, i drink a glass of red wine in the evening with dark chocolate and berries... antioxidants! in the summer, i enjoy a chilled glass of rose' with a salad a couple of times a week... on some weekends i do a celebratory tequila shot or two... i am not a "cocktails" or mixed-drinks drinker... those have too many calories... too much sugar... too much hidden alcohol... i like to know exactly what i am taking in... i don't drink beer but on rare occasions--i might have a Guiness... the last time i had one was in January 2016... one thing i will absolutely not do is drink alcohol when i am sad, down, depressed...
in any case, none of this has had an effect on my weight... i am 55 yrs., 5'5", 119 lbs., size 4 to 6... in excellent health... my last full physical was in January 2020, and my blood work was in the good range in every area... the physician assistant said that from my blood work, she can tell i am active, eat good fats like olive oil and avocado... CHEERS, Y'ALL!
Good advice. Thanks
A good read. I think that one can have an occasional drink and lose weight, but it isn't beneficial.
I can do without the booze if I have to
