if you drink it in moderation you can have hot chocolate with diabetes. It's better to make your own with unsweetened cocoa powder and then use artificial sweeteners to make it taste sweeter. You can use packet hot chocolate but you must read the nutritional information at the back so you know what's in it. You can also buy low-sugar versions.

Yes. Women are generally recommended to cut down on their caffeine intake during pregnancy but the amount of caffeine in a cup of hot chocolate is much less than you find in coffee or even tea.

So keep drinking your hot chocolate. Obviously an excess of anything isn't good for you, so just aim for a balanced healthy diet.

No, the human body does not need special teas, poultices, witches brews, enemas, flushing fluids or other daftness to run.

If you like the tea - awesome - but the only way it would "detox" you, is if you just drink the tea *instead* of something like alcohol.

Water is about the best - and is cheap too.

Any potions, pills, liquids or powders claiming to "Detox you" are basically selling you snake oil.

I am not going to pussyfoot with you. The typical American diet is the absolute worst on the planet. Double that if you adhere to a Southern diet, ie, lots of fried food, butter, dairy, sweets, high sugar. Continue that and DIE YOUNG.

"Seltzer water is water that has been infused with carbon dioxide under high pressure, which creates the bubbles," says Toni Marinucci, MS, RDN, a registered dietitian with a master's degree in nutrition and dietetics. "In simpler terms, seltzer is carbonated water therefore the ingredients should just read carbonated water. If it is a flavored seltzer then the ingredients should read: carbonated water, natural flavor."
As long as it doesn't have large amounts of sodium or sugar, you can drink as much sparkling water as regular water - no limits.
