Don’t believe me?  Tune in and see if I can convince you at least a little bit.

    I am doing an LTB marathon today, catching up on all the old ones I have been saving but have not been able to get to.
    This was an excellent one dude. This is a subject I think about all the time. We have all of these modern conveniences that theoretically make our lives easier but there result is the opposite, more stress, feeling like we have less time, more to do. We have things we think we “have to do” that we really DON”T.
    Pamela and I live in a huge city right now with a bazallion services and things at our fingertips. and my very very favorite time is when we leave here, get out in the country, put away the phone and the laptop, and head outside.
    (especially when I get to clip in and head out for a ride 🙂

    Here, here, I liked everything you said about slowing life down to what it used to be. Life was even much slower before you were born. Great job.

      Thanks Dad. I’m surprised more people don’t realize how many more benefits there was to doing things the old fashioned way.

      Cool….it was a last minute one put together on the way home on Tuesday. But the message is something that I hope gets through to at least a few people. I appreciate you checking it out, Dariece.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
