About Me

My photo
New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Sugar and calories per fountain drinkPosted on June 4, 2012 by nimashLast week, mayor Bloomberg of New York City proposed a law to ban the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street carts to combat rising obesity. The proposed ban would affect the sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces, about the size of a medium coffee, and smaller than a common soda bottle. Here you can compare the sugar and calorie content of different sizes of soda.
