  • "Flavored Water" .....??? An advertising ploy. All beverages are mostly water.

    I avoid artificial color, artificial flavor and sweeteners. All are linked to ailments. It took some time to kick my diet soda habit and get used to drinking plain water with meals, but now I just think of it as something to rinse the food down. My teen DD was my inspiration. She and my teen nephew made the water switch last summer. He (a football jock) dropped 30#s - he used to drink soda every day.

    Instead of thinking of it as 'boring water', I imagine I am rinsing my insides fresh and clean, every time I take a sip. Now I actually prefer it. Yayyy water!! :-)

  • I can't just drink plain water (I can't stand tap, so that's no good). I had such an addiction to soda, that when I tried to switch to just plain water, that NEED I felt for soda just would NOT go away. I finally picked up some Fruit 2O, and boy oh boy, I do NOT have that craving for soda I once had. It has helped me kick that soda addiction in its butt! Sure, I will still have a soda about once a month (maybe) as a "good for you" type thing, but 3-4 cans of soda a day for 7 days a week...GONE :D

  • I love regular water. Flavored water is all right, but it's nothing compared to regular water, in my opinion.

  • I occasionally drink a Propel or Gatorade, or sometimes use a Crystal Light packet or the Mio drops. I try for 1 serving or less per day though because I know plain water is best for me. I prefer our tap water over bottled water, and use a camelbak or similar bottle most of the time.

  • I don't like the taste of any bottled water. They all have a funny after taste. I just carry a resusable water bottle and drink tap. If I don't like the tap from somewhere I put lemon or some mint leaves in the water.
