  • Water has a bad taste in my house. We have a filter. It actually makes me feel ill to drink a daily amount of water. People don't like boring food either, but that's not a daily requirment.

  • Water is awesome, it is the only thing that quenches my thirst, aside for being good for you!

  • It is beyond me why people have to constantly have what they "want", or be entertained- What ever happened to doing what is GOOD for you, and being happy with your basic needs met? Man, millions of people would be THRILLED to have clean water.

  • It's almost the only thing I drink. We have a reverse osmosis filter at home, and I use refillable water bottles (CamelBak) and I love it! It's the best thing for you, and it's not full of calories or additives like many beverages are.

  • I absolutely love ice cold lemon flavored water. If I don't have fresh lemons on hand I always flavor my water with True Lemon. True Lemon rocks!

    The awesome thing about ice cold water is that it helps burn fat plus it's very good for you.

  • Adding to my above post:

    We have a Brita at home. If I'm out and about and wanting to drink some water, I always buy Dasani.

  • We have a filtered water dispenser on our refrigerator, so the water is always very cold, which is how I prefer to drink it and I do, all day long. I prefer water to all other drinks.

    For those who don't like water, they just need to re-educate their palates away from super sweet sports drinks, sodas & "diet" drinks. Once they've done that, they'll love water, too, as it is all our bodies really need (besides food, of course).

  • because lets be real here...would you eat the SAME thing every day? No you wouldn' drinking water which ALWAYS taste the same DOES get boring which is why people want something else every once in a while. Or want flavors to add to their water.

  • There are millions of people who eat the same thing every day- boring rice, boring soup, boring bread, etc but still love it. Also, I know of many many people who HAVE to drink their diet or reg coke every day- they don't get bored with that, but yet they won't drink water.
