Another Q...

sorry folks.

sad I know, but my intention is to not over indulge on all the yummy food the voyage has to offer as i have lost a stone and dont want to put it back on :(. Inci has kindly went out her way to see if she can source diet tonic for me but they don't import it all.

aparently they do sugar free diet lemonade, i could drink that with my gin??

thanks

Why don't you take a couple of bottles with you? I didn't like the diet lemonade with my gin! I just had normal tonic in the end!!

I lost over a stone when we went, and went with good intentions like yourself, I was going to do loads of swimming, but pool was too cold and I put all the weight back on, the food and drink is so delicious though, I'm sure a few full fat tonics won't matter too much, just do a few more lengths of the pool!!

Hi Hayles ,i am an insulin dependent diabetic and i used to drink vodka and tonic ,i changed to diet tonic thinking it would be better for me ,but my diabetic specialist has warned me off diet tonic water ,because of the reasons below taken from a website which is recommended by the B.D.A. where i get lots of advise about my diabetes .

Disadvantages of Tonic Water

While you may choose diet tonic thinking it’s a healthy alternative to regular tonic water, think again. Over the short-term, switching from regular tonic water to diet tonic water may trigger some weight loss, but long-term consumption of diet tonic soda, however, may be linked to weight gain. According to a 2009 study published in "Diabetes Care," adult men and women who drank diet soda every day had a higher waist circumference than adults who did not drink diet soda. The consumption of diet soda was also associated with higher fasting glucose numbers.

Although the causes are not known, drinking diet soda every day may lead to weight gain as well as problems processing glucose, which can eventually lead to diabetes.

I switched from tonic to soda water which has no carbs or calories and now love it . As i said before i was told that there was type of diet tonic in the shops in Belek ,but when i went to see if i could get it ,when i was there in June none of the shops i asked in had it, some never even heard of it .

Hope this helps .

Peter

Try Gin & diet coke.....don't knock it until you've tried it! I have a checkout girl at my local Asda to thank for that little discovery!
