*sigh* Mountain Dew is crack

But I can't get enough of it! I love Mountain Dew- I just can't figure out how to break the addiction! Heeeeeeeeelp!

P.S. Don't tell me it has too many calories. I ride rolling hills to work every day for over an hour each way, and I teach 14 aerobics classes a week.

hands !

I'l never be so broke that I can't buy a mountain dew... and even then, I'd find a way to get my hands on $1.25 for that 20 oz bottle!

Mountain Dew is the jam! I think I'll always be addicted to that stuff.

Go for the DEW !!! You can burn off the calories in 15-minutes of riding anyway. Anyone like the new Code Red?

Get a juice weasel and make your own homemade juice. Make enough to bottle and take w/ you. You'll save money and it'll be healthier for you.

My friend who drinks it all the time can have one right before bed and still go to sleep! Something about bikes and Mt. Dew I guess, he owns a bike shop. He can't quit, his friends bring him Dew at the shop.
If you have frozen lemonaide down there try adding a little Dew to the lemonaide on a hot day.

He tried to quit once, the doc said it may have contributed to his kidney stones I believe. He can't quit either. I'm afraid to even taste it.
Did you try to quit? Did you try a little less every two or three weeks?

At first I didn't like it, but somehow It really is addicting. Code red and original are great.

Code Red is da bomb when it's ice cold. But if it's not ice cold, then I don't really care for it.

I don't think I'm going to get kidney stones. I drink a lot of water, and I don't eat a lot of protein, thank goodness. I just have this thing for Mountain Dew. I wanted to quit, but I always go back to it. Always. I do have to go to the store tomorrow. What I should do is get lemonade and those 8 oz packs of Mountain Dew and just make lemonade for a while and add tiny bits of Mountain Dew and try to really wean myself off that crack.

I dunno why, but the meth addicts around here really dig it. You see guys walking around with effed up teeth (if any) walking around with a bottle of mountain dew.

I could never really drink it. It's like carbonated syrup.

Koffee, its not calories, it the chemicals and things that will get you. Free radicals causing pre-mature aging are the price you pay, not getting fat.

My friend was dehydrated almost all the time. I don't think he even drinks water. And he eats too much protien too. I would have guessed you are doing the right thing. Good luck, I heard that it takes two weeks to make an adjustment to a lot less caffiene.

I'm going to get a hot coffee now..........

My granddaughter is ADHD. Her parents have her a Mountain Dew handy at all times.

I like Mountain Dew. I like Dr. Pepper even more. My doctor doesn't want me drinking either one. She is always telling me "Carbs are crack".

A good deterrent for the guys is that all the Yellow #5 in Mountain Dew causes shrinky-dinky.

Tell your doctor she's on crack. Any doctor that dissuades their patients from eating carbs is definitely sniffing something... unless she specifically pointed out refined vs. natural and went into the nutrition. Uuuugh.

Mountain Dew is great, I used to drink it a lot at work where it was free (to us)

Now I don't have it as much, since I don't have any money most of the time and when I do get a drink, the machine I'm at doesn't usually have Mt. Dew

Soda machines in stores and restruants mix soda water with concentrated syrup. For a real fix just drink the syrup.

All this discussion of Mountain Dew is making me want one. (Or any similar drink will do, really, right now, if I can't conveniently get a Mountain Dew.)

Okay, offline I go, in search fo a Mountain Dew.

Dew sucks. Dr. Pepper is the carbonated beverage to drink.... when I drink one. Recently went from 10-12 cups o' joe a day down to 2 and started drinking water. No my body has a chance to flush the crap out. Feels good!

How about this?

Go take a look at the label and see that one of the ingredients of Mt Dew has Brominated Vegetable Oil.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brominated_vegetable_oil

Whenever I drink one now I think about sucking down a bottle of veggie oil. Bleh!
