    Sparkling Water

    Hey all, I am trying to Up my water intake and find tap water boring so I have been drinking sparkling soda water...but someone said I should watch this as it contains alot of sodium.
    Is 1 litre a day too much?

    I don't know about the sodium levels but it is very gasy! Could you have tap water or bottled mineral water with slices of lemon and lime in it? Or I think sugar free squash is free if you like that

    Some sparkling waters are high in sodium (ever tried Badoit? Yuk!). Best thing to do is spend a little time in the supermarket reading the labels on the bottles, and choose the lowest.

    Be careful around weigh in if it's high in sodium, it can affect losses. I'm not a fan so unfortunately no help.

    Dont know if it would affect weight loss unless the sodium caused water retention. All I know is that if you drink too much, you turn into a balloon and the airs gotta come out somehow!!!!

    I drink sparkling water a lot, have done for years, I don't think it has a negative affect on weight loss. In the SW book where it mentions drinking 6-8 glasses of fluid a day to keep hydrated, and lists the free drinks, it includes sparkling water.

    It takes a while to get used to though... I don't find it bloats me or makes me any windy-er but I think it used to when I started drinking it.

    You can always mix things up and drink tea, coffee, sugar-free squash (as someone already mentioned) or even sugar-free pop.

    I used to be a skeptic about some sugar-free pop as sometimes the taste is completely different however some have kept the taste pretty much the same.

    A few things you can still drink are Cola Zero or Diet Cola (this DOES taste different to the full-sugar equivalent)
    Dr. Pepper Zero (this is spot on and you would have to take a while to taste the difference to the full-sugar equivalent)
    Fanta Zero, most varieties (most are pretty much spot-on but the Orange one does taste different)
    Supermarkets also do sugar-free pop, Sainsbury's do a really nice Cherry Zero which actually tastes like fizzy Cherry juice but is Syn-Free.

    Just be aware that some of the more traditional pop actually tastes vastly different, such as Dandelion and Burdock, he sugar-free equivalent tastes pretty nasty in my opinion.

    As an alternative, if you do drink a lot of Soda-Water, it may be worth investing in a Soda-Stream as you would save a lot of money and plastic waste.
    It's a machine which can carbonate water for you so you know EXACTLY what is going into the bottle itself - they also have sugar-free cordials available, including sugar-free Tonic Water, Diet Cola, Diet Lemonade as well as pretty exotic ones such as sugar-free Pink Grapefruit and Sugar-Free Cranberry and Raspberry.

    You can buy CO2 cylinders and some cordials from supermarkets like Asda and Sainsbury's but also, the company has its' own site which sell different machines, CO2 cylinders, extra bottles and all of the cordials they make, just in case you can't get the ones you want from your local supermarket.

    I probably drink 6-8L of sparkling water a week and another 6 L of tap water a week. I have to say I don't notice any difference in bloating when it's the sparkling water i drink.

    This is something I have been thinking about recently. I started drinking Sparkling water in about January as I find it quenches thirst better than tap water. I drink a lot of sugar free cordial, sparkling water and cammomile tea. I dont drink much coffee or pop (mostly to save me from headaches) I havent been having the best weight losses recently so I dont know if it is having an effect, or if its other things that have been getting in the way (havent had the smoothest start to the year!) like you say I dont see how it could be really. Im not particularly.. ahem.. windy though I do find I bloat occasionally.
