How to Stop Drinking Diet Soda – Straight from the Horton’s Mouth

So, I’m hanging out with Tony Horton today (yes, the creator of the P90x series and the new p90) and I tell him, “Man, I’m trying to stop drinking diet soda.”  And here’s what he said…

MEETING TONY HORTON

This week, Tony Horton’s empire just got a little bigger. His food service, Tony Horton Kitchen, has teamed up with 7-Eleven to stock healthy alternatives for their customers.  Everything from fresh salads and sandwiches to wraps and a variety of cold-pressed juices.

It’s a wonderful idea and it’s rolling out in a select (100) 7-Eleven stores across the San Fernando Valley.

So, back to my story.  Like I said, I’m chillin’ with Tony, just the two Tony’s, having a conversation about some stuff. And I say, “The thing I’m working on now is trying to stop drinking diet soda.” He says, “Get some mineral (carbonated) water, whichever is your favorite, Perrier or Pellegrino, and pour some fresh juice into it for flavor.”

Wow. Nice! Hadn’t thought of that!

I had tried this with some of that Crystal Light Liquid water flavoring stuff, and he said, “Well, we just don’t know what’s in that stuff. We KNOW what’s in the juice!”

Of course, I also talked about having O.I. and still doing the P90x workouts, and about the BLOG. He called me a rockstar and said to keep it going!

Then, we had a flex off.  I came in 2nd. But I’ll be back for a rematch!

Teemaree - Tony Horton - Tony Jacobsen

Teemaree and I spent a short time hanging out with Tony at the 7-Eleven just down the street from our house where he was doing a promotion for the new THK foods, giving away samples, and just hanging out and talking with people.

Such a friendly, funny, and down to earth guy.

So, now I’m off to the market so I can get my Pellegrino and THK Fresh Juice mix on!

And later today, we’re actually workout with Tony! Post coming soon!
