    It is not fair for me to join in as I have no problem drinking water. I live in a very very hot country ( currently we have highs of 45 deg C ++ and evening lows of around 35 deg C) so you need to stay hydrated. If I exercse (swim) I drink a liter duringthat time alone. I would just like to mention herbal teas taken with no sugar or honey are also mainly 0 calories. I make my own ice tea with "rooibos" ( red bush) tea. You can leave it in the water ( I use 4 bags to 2 lts of water) for as long as you like, it does not go bitter. Once it is strong and cooled I store it as is in the fridge. serve 3/4 tea with 1/4 or less of fruit juice. For me that is enough to sweeten it. You just calculate the 100ml (or less) of fruit juice you used the rest is 0. another thing do not sip water. You need to hydrate your organs. Desert survival 101 teaches take a good drink of water each time you need it. I drink 250 ml to 500 ml in one go. I have my water in a bottle , take a breath and drink! Good luck to everyone, water is the most important thing our bodies need, in my opinion.

    Thanks for your suggestions!
