  • I dont drink much soda at all. I started buying bottled water and those falvor packs to go in it. I like the Crystal Light ones. I can go through about 10-12 bottles of water with the flavor in them. They dont have sugar either.

  • You could also buy one of those pitchers that have a filter in it. That could help for the future, but for right now, I'd add a bit of lemon juice to the water. I love my water like that.

  • Get a Pur filter for your kitchen faucet. The tap water in S. FL is horrible too so that´s what I use and the water tastes the same as bottled.

  • unsweetened tea (though I think that the caffeine will dehydrate you more). Bottled water?

  • I've had some kidney issues and my doctor said other than water-just for a change that I could drink the Lipton Diet green tea. They make a citrus flavor one that is REALLY good. No sugar-with 100% Vitamin C and antioxidants!

  • I secong the Pur filter. We just hot one and now even the dog drains his bowl. As for sweetner, have you tried Truvia (stevia)? It's all natural, calorie free and wont affect your blood sugar plus it tastes great, no funky aftertaste!
