    I can't see why it wouldn't be. If I drink too much fizzy water I get tummy ache from all the bubbles. :(

    For a diet like SW and WW the recommendation is really 2 litres of fluid a day can be made up of anything :)

    Hiya,

    After MUCH research on this matter in the last couple of months I found that sparkling water is fine for the intake of water but is actually really bad for your teeth! I LOVE sparkling water so trawled through heaps and heaps of sites and then asked my dentist - and it's true - almost as bad as fizzy pop believe it or not! :(

    So, I reverted back to plain old boring still water with the ocassional glass of fizzy water!! Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    If you do drink sparkling water don't just sip it through the day - that's the worst way as teeth are constantly soaked in it. Use a straw! :)

    Hope this is of some help.

    Blimey - now even fizzy water is bad for you in some way. I give up. The dentist told me the other day that I should not brush my teeth for an hour after eating fruit because it softens the enamel and by brushing your teeth soon after you can damage it!

    :D I know! What next - apples give you spots?? ha ha!

    I just think it's best to be aware - forewarned is forearmed and all that!

    I don't want my teeth falling out or going yellow because I was trying to get my 2L of water in!! ;)

    aspratame (not sure if that's the right spelling) a sweetener in diet drinks is said to increase your appetite for real sugar! There's no definite on it but a lot of research is beginning to show this so be careful of your choice! Still, it's better than drinking 2 litres of sugary drinks per day so although it's not the best option it's better than some :D sugar free orange squash in sparkling water is one of my favourite drinks, it's like a fizzy orange but has a more realistic flavour to it if that makes sense!

    oh and if you brew a massive jug of fruit tea and let it cool overnight it's lovely and refreshing!

    Slimming World do not discount diet pop in their list of fluids, so as far as that goes, it'd be fine to count it.

    I am totally gobsmacked about fizzy water ruining your teeth. Honestly. Well, i'll have to live with rotten teeth because I cannot abide still water - I'd never get the allocated amount down me.

    I feel as if I'm brushing my teeth to an inch of their lives as it is.

    I'm constantly living in fear of something!! Now it's fizzy water and rotting teeth. Great!!

    I think there is a very split opinion over the sparkling water thing. I am NO expert and was just reiterating what I have read and been told but apparently it is something to do with the slightly acidic nature of the water :confused:- please feel free to correct me if I am wrong ( I hope I am - I much prefer sparkling water!! ) From the reports it would seem that some people have been drinking it for years with no effects whatsoever so it's unlikely it's anywhere near as bad as fizzy pop but maybe best to use a straw to err on the side of caution??
