My goal last year was to drink more water...and it's one goal in my life I've accomplished I find the more I drink (water) the more I want to drink (water)...I sometimes add lemon juice and recently discovered flavored sparkling waters. My daughter really likes Crystal Light.

Fruit 2 0 is really very good. Is actually water with just some fruit flavoring added to it. I like to put mine in freezer and get it nice and icy before I drink it. Zero carbs, zero sugar. Has helped me get rid of the carbonated drinks.

Diet Rite and Fresca both have no calories, no carbs.

Water and more water. I drink Dasani bottled water from Coke as a second choice. It has a fresher taste and is a distilled product with a mineral packet added back to it. My first pick is fresh water from an artesian spring a few miles from here. My favorite way to fix it is to crush a little fresh mint in a cup and pour water in. The mint grows right there at the spring and the taste is incredible. Another trick I use is a few leaves of stevia (South American saccharine plant) in any sweetened tea I make. The leaves give it a sweet taste w/o the fake undertones that most artificial sweeteners have.

Very few things in this world are more healthy than drinking lots of room temperature water. I keep a jug next to my desk at all times.

Ok... drinks:

Poland spring sparkling lime: It's got a great fizzle and taste which really killed my cravings for soda or beer when I was on the atkins.

Iced green tea: very good for you, a great substitute for coffee and with half a sugar packet the taste is just perfect. I have one or two a day at work.
