Can you tell me the health risks of mixing energy drinks and several packets of kool-aid?

What happens if I want 6 pack abs, I can not even have one glass of kool-aid?

What happens if I want 6 pack abs, I can not even have one glass of kool-aid?

Understand why: Forget complicated rules. You need to lose almost all your body fat to see your definition. That's a good thing and a worthwhile goal in itself. Losing the fat is calories in and calories out. Kool-aid is fruit-flavored sugar water, loaded with calories. Why not a glass of tap water and a nice apple instead? It's what the gym heroes do. Follow your dream. ...Read more

Can I get the same amount of hydration if I mix water with kool aid?

Can I get the same amount of hydration if I mix water with kool aid?

Yes.: The potential difference in the amount of "hydration" between pure water and kool aid is very small. Depending on sweetener you may get a little extra sugar, but that does not substantially effect the amount of water you get. If you are really sweating up a storm this would not be a good "hydration" solution as it does not contain enough salts to replace losses. ...Read more

I just found out I'm about nine weeks pregnant. Before I knew I was out drinking...A lot. I've stopped but am scared. Will my baby be ok most likely?

In this situation: Your baby will be best helped if you have no more alcohol until after the delivery. There is little to do to change the past. There is also no guarantee that there has not been harm. But, healing is real and brain development will be ongoing as the baby grows inside of you. Now is the time to take your prenatal vitamins, to eat well; and to be in fellowship with expectant mothers not drinking. ...Read more
