Default Is flavored water allowed?

Hey…
I was just looking for if it’s ok to use water flavoring packets in my water? I love water, but sometimes I get tired of just plain water

I don't know why not--they have 0 calories don't they? However, like diet soda, some folks may find that the sweetness sets off cravings for other sweet foods/drinks.

Regards,
Michael

For a change of pace I buy Lime flavored Seltzer water. Zero calories, lightly flavored and not sweet, and along with the fizz it's quite enjoyable.

I drink flavored water all the time. Plain water can get incredibly boring, and I find that if I just try to drink unflavored water all the time, I start craving something with flavor. If that something is flavored water, I will give into soda.

I use flavor packets, and drink a lot of Sobe Lifewater and Vitaminwater. I just make sure to get the Zero calorie kind, which actually doesn't taste like "diet" drink.

I also check what they use to sweeten it. I try not to drink anything with aspartame or other chemicals that are supposedly harmful. Instead, I look for things like blue agave nectar, and stevia extract which are supposed to naturally come from plants.

Good tip. I'll be on the lookout for beverages containing these.

Plane water is my favorite--rather pricey, though, and those pat-downs make it hardly worth the effort.

Tristanan, if you're about to start spamming, just don't even go there.
