    I actually never ever drink plain water, ever! I find it boring and hard to get down. I ususally carbonate my water and add some sort of juicy fruit to it to give it some pahzaz.

    Bubbling up my water makes it feel like a corbonated (pepsi) drink but a lot healthier :)

    I drink a lot of tea. Iced, hot, doesn't matter, I love it all. You can also try infusing your water with different fruits to give it a little flavor with few calories.

    stay away from diet drinks. they aren't any good for you. if you want to pump up your water, get lemon concentrate and put a squeeze in or buy a lemon or lime or orange and put a squeeze in. water keeps you hydrated and it has benefits like your skin looking better. don't give up on water.

    This isn't true.

    Diet soda is 99% water, have as much sodium as tap water, too. And aspartame? It's not as scary as you'd think:

    I make my own lemonade... 1 can of seltzer water, juice of half a lemon and half a lime, sweetener to taste. I use home made sugar syrup, but i have worked my way down to about a tea spoon.

    Also very nice with a sneaky shot of vodka or gin!!

    I never drank as much soda as you did, but I used to have one or two a day. I found that the LaCroix sparkling waters satisfied my fizzy drink craving pretty well. I especially like the Coconut and Grapefruit flavors.

    It's nice to see that the anti-diet soda arguments were just as baseless 9 and half years ago as they are today.

    And I'm always careful to check the dates of threads to make sure they aren't zombies!

    2007, 2017, whatever.

    Quite frankly, I prefer 2007 to 2017. Can we please go back?

    Maybe this thread is a portal in the time-space continuum!

    Jfc. I need more coffee. :laugh: No, scrap that. I need a caffeine IV. A 2 hour sleep night derps me.

    I used to drink at least one and sometimes two whole 2 liters of Pepsi a day. It was very common for me to go several days with no water at all. Now that Im tring to change my bad ways and lose some weight I have only had water and quite frankly Im sick of it. If I never see another glass of water again that would be fine with me.

    Has anyone found a good diet drink out there that you really like?
    Anything to keep me from a major Pepsi relapse.

    I absolutely HATE water and am trying to drink it everyday as well - i have found Mio makes these flavor enhancers for water and the best (no diet tasting) ones I have found so far are the Sweet tea and Orange Vanilla flavors. they definitely help because without them, i probably would only drink water when I take my vitamins in the morning.
