    Re: Health or Taste?

    I try to eat healthy for health's sake, but when I indulge, it's all about taste. Beignets are one of my favorite foods but they're super super unhealthy and so I make them sparingly. But when I make 'em, I go all out: homemade fruit toppings and mounds of powdered sugar deliciousness.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I never got the whole thing with diet drinks.... Whats the point of it having less sugar if it has twice as much caffeine? Whats the point of ordering the diet drink if you are still ordering the largest possible size for it? Whats the point of the diet drink if everything else you are eating is about as unhealthy as radioactive waste? Someone who wants to lose weight should not have soda at all, it is that simple lol. As for me, soda overall does nothing for me. I'd rather have a beer which is actually healthier than soda and as long as I don't drink a six pack every day I won't really get weight (I also don't drunk light beer, that is just awful).

    Soda tastes good. ._. And it's addicting.


    But I don't understand the whole diet fad either. It's been said that artificial sugar is worse for health than real sugar and that it is better at fattening you.

    Honestly, some people! Misled by "diet" or "sugarfree" label. :\

    Personaly I'm not a big fan of soda. And I don't understand why cola is so much popular. All these chemical taste are just not my thing at all. Plus I like sugar less and less. The only soda I drink with pleasure is orangina
    And I don't understand how you can drink some while eating a meal. It overtakes all the taste of the other food

    Well, I am not much of a soda drinker myself (I actually rarely drink it at all) but I have to admit there is just something awesome about drinking coca cola while eating pizza.

    Sugary taste is just so good. Plus, many colas also have caffeine in it, which makes it even more addicting. I love sodas because of their sweet taste, otherwise I do wanna stay away and have tried.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I've been staying away from sugared drinks for three weeks now, except for homemade juices and isotonic drinks.
    It's not that hard for me maybe because I like cold drinks more than sugared drinks so cold water replacing my sugar drinks is an ok for me. Although I have to admit, the urge sometimes can't be controlled, in this three weeks I've drank two bottles of sugared drinks to treat myself and after that I wanted more then I reminded myself that Self-control and discipline is important.

    Anyway, for me it'll be Taste over Health. I used to have KFC or Mcdonalds twice or once a week every time and I wasn't eating anything healthy or close to it and after being introduced to healthy food, I can never enjoy the taste as much as fast food. I think I got used to having them in my life that kicking them out will take sometime to get used to. Its been one month since I touched fast food and all I've been eating is "healthy" food, I don't hate them but I know I love fastfood more.

    It's easy to like sugar but little by little my preference has come for sour and bitter tastes. I trade 1 liter of grapefruit juice against all the cola of the world :-). I even start to really dislike when it's too suggary. Last week-end I made a brownie with only half of the sugar portion and I still feel like there was too many

    @Zeltrax
    I don't think that cold drink are that good. That was also one of my nightmare when I went to US. Why do people there put so many ice in the drinks ?

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I meant chilled drinks/drinks that are cold.
    I can't stand water or sugared drinks warm, I like to drink everything cold.
    Doesn't need to have ice, just in the fridge.

    That's like me as well. Accept with food When I'm not particularly hungry and I just want to eat for the sake of it, I just go to the refrigerator and grab something and say 'screw the microwave' and eat it the way it is. I don't really like waiting for the microwave to heat up my food. My policy is, if it can be eaten the way it is, screw the microwave and eat it from the fridge.

    Re: Health or Taste?

    I understood and my point is still valid cold drink is not really good and the warm drinks are generally better.
    In asia they drink a lot of tea and in the desert they do a lot too. As for me, I'm the opposit since I prefer warm drinks during the day, I still not drink them during lunch except for sups.

    @Freid
    That looks more like laziness than taste. And it's not like microwave was the best for heating. So far i didn't find better than the traditional saucepan. And it's not like you can everything raw but I guess if it's pizza it's ok

    Re: Health or Taste?

    Well, I would say it's a combination of both. I genuinely do not mind the taste of cold food, and at the same time, waiting for the microwave is a bit of a drag for me. However, when I'm actually hungry, I don't mind enduring the few minutes. You know, when you are hungry you want to taste food at its best

    On another note, I only recently started eating candy again after I took a sabbatical from eating them over a year ago. Man, I've missed out

    Re: Health or Taste?

    Wahahaha, shame on us, no one voted for "health"! XD
    The perfect answer, obviously, should be health. But I can't deny it that I almost always pick taste way above health. Last night my mom made me an apple juice, and since I'm a no-no when it comes to fruit juice, I had a hard time drinking it. But give me a choco milk and everything would be perfect. I wouldn't even care of getting fat or my acnes would act up or whatever. XD
