I don't know if this is considered a snack, but I have been drinking an awful lot of "Polar 100% Natural Calorie-Free Seltzer". Does anyone know anything about this stuff? Am I doing any harm to my body? Would appreciate any info. on this matter.

It appears to be a good source of fluids with no issues. Keep on enjoying it

I've been snacking on Mt. Olive dill pickle spears. I also make homemade quick pickles and keep them in the fridge most of the time. Sometimes I want something a little different, so I have a store-bought one.

GG, thank you so much for that article. That is just what I was looking for. Now I can enjoy without any worry. Thanks again and enjoy your pickles.

Thank you for that link GG. I drink a lot of fizzy water. I was mildly concerned about the possible effect on teeth, so I am relieved to read that it's not a problem and may have a number of health benefits.

We drink a lot of the Clearly American waters from Walmart. It's the only way I can get Mom to drink water.

Just a cautionary note about volume: make sure you don't drink so much that you flush needed nutrients from your body. I used to be a 100+ ounce tea/coffee/water drinking person back in the day - up until roughly two years ago. At that point, my PCP sent me on over to a nephrologist because my blood sodium level just would not get up to the minimum number of the "safe" range reading. The easiest treatment is to have the patient reduce their liquid intake. When he said he wanted me to restrict my intake to no more than 45 ounces a day I said "but I drink almost that much in tea before I get to my first cup of coffee!" Thankfully, keeping under 50 ounces a day (yeah, I cheated a bit) got my sodium level up to the good numbers. Hopefully drinking an "awful lot" of liquid doesn't affect you in the same way, but I thought I'd send out a warning from my own personal experience.
