I get tired of the taste of water after about a glass. Does it count as my water consumption if I use crystal light in it?

I personally only count water as water.... not when I add any flavorings. Maybe try putting lemon wedges in it?

I don't know
Frozen fruit will flavor water with none of the additives that crystal lite adds

 I personally cannot drink crystal light or any fake sugar drink. But I usually put some fresh lemon or lime in it. My ob told me to dilute tea and drink it that way, not to the point that its nasty, but so that its not quite as strong but you still enjoy the taste. Or selzter or sparkling water.

I personally think that if you put sugar or sweetner or anything like that your defeating the purpose of drinking water. But that is just my opinion.

If it contains sugar then no it doesn't count. No matter if it isn't real sugar it is still sugar. The best thing to do is drink the water even if you do not like the taste. Also using lemon in your water still makes it hard for your body to absorb the water.

I only count water as water. I wouldn't add things like that to it, they aren't good for u. If you want flavor try lemons, limes or fruit

I've tried lemons, and other fruit. Frozen and fresh. They just don't taste good to me. *sigh*

You get used to it. I was a sweet tea drinker for as long as I can remember. I just gradually starting drinking water....
Keep your head up! You'll eventually crave water and the sweet stuff, even crystal light, will be too sweet!

I used to make a gallon of sweet tea every couple days. Then switched to crystal light and I'm drink a gallon a day so I'm consuming more with less sugar but I wasn't sure if I could really count this as consuming more water.
