HELP! Struggling with water

#1
Im really struggling to drink all my water every day. Ive never liked water and its a real chore to have to drink this amount every day. Soups, shakes, bars no problem but having NOTHING that I can drink and enjoy is really getting me fed up :(

Are there ANY other options available :cry:

I really wish Exante did water flavourings like Cambridge

hey you!

each day i have:

2 cups of tea with a splash of semi skimmed, 2 litres water from one 2 litre bottle which i refill and keep at work so i know i have to have it whilst at work IYSWIM? then i have fizzy water, coke zero or dr pepper zero when i feel the need.

i could not only drink water, as a smoker i need some flavouring between meals as i cant have gum or mints.

HTH :)

apparently, diet coke has citric acid which can knock you out (although atkins has always said any diet drink is fine?) but coke zero has malic acid which doesnt affect it...

also if you read the flavoured water labels and find one without citric acid and no sugar cals then theyre fine to!

I know strictly it's not allowed but i drink diet coke and it's never stopped me from going into ketosis or taken me out of ketosis, i think it's more to do with the diet coke causeing cravings than anything else, im not a big water liker myself so the odd diet coke here and there is a lifesaver for me. Before i did any VCLD i think i must have been a kid the last time i drank water alone, i tend to drink it at room temperture now though as i can get a lot more down that way.

Honestly? I drink quite a lot, as and when i want it, im a diet coke junkie and could never go without my diet coke, im not saying it's right and it is going against the rules a little but it's never did me any harm and i don't seem to get cravings either, mabye im just lucky.

Be careful with the fizzy drinks because they can induce hunger. That's why Cambridge doesn't advocate Coke Zero any longer.

If ever I have fizzy, I just have Coke Zero and only one 330ml can a day.

I drink 3l of water a day and break it up into two 1.5l bottles. I make sure I have drunk one before my 2nd shake, and the other before my final one. Then I know I have had it all and can relax in the evening without being up on the loo all night haha! :p

Yeah I hate the water. Out tap water tastes minging and I can't afford to keep buying bottled water. As a rule I never drink water. I'm hoping it's a habit that will stick!!! x

I don't really like anything fizzy so feel stuck with water or black coffee/tea. Is there any option that is non-fizzy? I might be ok with the sparkling flavoured waters if they are allowed as I do drink the plain sparkling water now.

I bought a water filter today so hopefully thatll help with the tap water. Least when Im back at work we have a proper water cooler.

There might be, it took me literally hours of googling etc to discover the Asda cola is ok to have, there may very well be something.
