Patient discussion about difference

Q. Is there any difference in sugar. Is there any difference in sugar between flavored milk and fruit drinks or carbonated soft drinks?

A. Yes …Flavored milk contains both natural and added sugars and has less added sugar than carbonated soft drinks. It has been found that flavored milk just contributes only 2-4 % of total added sugar in kid’s diets as compared to 50-60 percent or more by soft and fruit drinks.

Q. Are there any different exercises I would have to do? I’m due any day now (hopefully). I am 23 years old and am 39w 5d with my first child and I used to be 5'7 160. I am now 5'7 208: I wanted to know from the people on this site if they have any diet/exercise tips on me trying to get myself physically fit again. I dream to work for FDNY as an EMT next year so being physically fit is a strong requirement to be hired. Are there any different exercises I would have to do?

A. congratulations!!!
