    Just wondering during the high heat and humudity,are you cutting back on caffeinated beverages?

    Even though I do not go outside much I find myself drinking more Gatorade and spring water.
    Soda pop just does no seem as appealing. Ok I stil manage to drink about four cans a day.LOL

    Yeah,
    I know what you mean. What I find really enjoyable is taking an empty gatorade bottle filling it with kool-aid and putting it in the freezer until it is about half frozen. Then shake it up and you have a super cold super tasty kool-aid slushy.

    I used to take 1.5 ltr Aquafina bottles and fill them up 1/3 of the way and freeze them at a 45 degree angle. I would then fill the bottles the next day before work with water. Always kept me satisfied. Those were the good old days. Ate what I wanted and still couldn't put on weight. Now it is the opposite, watch my diet and my pants still get tighter by the day.
    Now I work in an air conditoned office all day and sweat my A$$ off when I go outside.
    Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

    I have always chilled my drinks, whether it's summer or winter (although in the winter I wear a sweater when I drink them). It differs on the drink, i.e. Mountain Dew from a can is perfectly chilled at 40 minutes in the freezer for me (just bordering on slushy but still able to get it out of the can), colas require less freezer time to get the same result (only about 15 minutes) and anything that's bottled I prefer in a semi-slushy state. With anything, if it's meant to be cold, I like it really cold - if it's meant to be hot, I like it really hot! I'm a "just so" kind of gal!

    You're talking about 40 minutes in the freezer (0 degrees F), after taking it out of the refrigerator (40 F), aren't you? (I had estimated 35 minutes for this in the past, and about 1 hour and 20 minutes for starting from "room temperature".) Of course, I suppose refrigerators might vary.

    Well no humidty here in Colorado, but it is plenty hot!! (A dry heat some would say)

    These days I am drinkning seltzer water from 2 litres with pure lemon juice adde. No calories, very tasty, and keep me hydradted. I have been shying away from Gatorade because of the HFCS. But that's another topic.

    Here in Aguascalientes is dang hot!, specially in the afternoon, is so hot that I have to drink around one or two daily liters of Ciel water (BTW, a new Ciel water dispenser arrived at the office where I work)... but also it rained a lot here during these last days...

    I am a blue collar slob that has to work out in the heat and caffeine doesn't seem to affect me. Of maybe it does and I am too stupid to notice. I do drink a lot of lemonade, Gatorade and water this time of year, but still drink plenty of iced tea though.

    I've actually upped my caffeine consumption.

    I'm averaging 3 cans of Hype a day.

    In fact, yesterday I had 2 No Fear, a Tab, 3 Hype and a 4 pack of Red Rain.
