    It's feasible to cook in a way that you are controlling your calories. However, most drinks we consume are premade (barring smoothies and shakes, I guess), so we have less control over their nutritional value. People opt for 0-calorie options because they can quench their thirst without worrying about the fat, sodium, etc content.

    You're lucky. They only sell the sugar packed version of the vitamin water here in the UK icon_sad.gif

    Depends on the type of artificial sweetener they use. Red Bull Sugar Free tastes fuckin awful. But Red Bull Total Zero tastes better because they use a different sweetener.

    But yeah, if a person is trying to lose weight, the easiest step is to stop drinking soda or switch to the the diet version. Most soda has about 150 - 200 calories in a 12 ounce serving. And most people definitely drink more than 12 ounces.

    My solute? A lemon cut in half so I can squeeze the juice, some water and a couple drops of liquid stevia. Instant vita water and damn close to 0 calories.

    I actually like SoBe's lifewater 0 or low calorie drinks. If you mix half of a bottle with your pre-workout before the gym, it tastes really good and doesn't have the nasty taste of the pre-workout. They also don't contain Ace-K as a sweetener, so I prefer it over some other zero calorie drinks (Gatorade and powerade here's looking at you)

    It is simply a matter of taste. I really have not found any good ones. Being diabetic, I do get tired of water and plain tea, but the artificial sweeteners all taste bad to me. Those sweeteners also tend to make your body respond as though you have had sugar and to cause insulin swings anyway, so why bother.

    A few drops of citrus in water can add variety, but there is really no getting around what will quench thirst.

    Try making a pitcher of iced green tea. One tea bag, a pot of water, steep for 2 hours. Drink over ice. Very cheap, good for you, caffeine, no plastic involved. Ever notice that plastic bottled water has an expiration date? Know why? Chemicals used in the making of the plastic leaches into the water. If you must have a portable drink, make the tea, put it in your own container, drink, wash.

    The only things I drink when I am on a training diet (48 weeks of this year) are protein shakes and water. For a treat, I have sparkling water (lol).

    BIG Fan of 'SportTea' a zero calorie, no caffeine, herbal tea from Colorado. Sweet enough that you don't have to add any sweetener. They do an oversized bag specifically for doing iced tea. Satisfying, delicious and provides various electrolytes. I can't say enough good things about this product. Check them out online.

    I have absolutely no fucking idea why someone would buy "vitamin water", instead of just drinking, you know, water (as in normal water), and getting your vitamins from vegetables.

    Corporations make and market these things to people that don't know jack shit about eating right and exercising.

    Sometimes people crave something sweet, like Coke or Pepsi or 7UP or lemonade, but the sugar is fattening. So, you buy a diet version which contains artificial sweeteners. It's not just for diabetics.

    So, getting a diet "recreational" drink (like diet sodas, diet iced teas, low-cal beers, etc) makes sense. You crave the sweetness, but don't wanna get fat from it. As for "vitamin water" ...it's a ripoff for lazy people with no will-power that can't steam some broccoli to supplement their dinners.

    lol way to work around admitting that ultimately giving into that sugar craving is still pretty weak on the will-power front
