    Was in Meijer over the weekend and I'm always looking for something healthy to drink throughout the day other than just plain water or Crystal Light. I was drinking 2 20 oz. Mountain Dews away but realized I have to get away from that. Meijer had these huge bottles of flavored sparkling water for $.62. Bought a couple and they were awesome. No calories, no carbs, no sugar. Is there really anything in them that's bad for you?

    I don't see why this is any worse than drinking plain water. It's water...but carbonated. Note that there is a difference between soda water, seltzer water and club soda. Refer to the nutrition label on the side and compare.

    I didn't mean for it to be a full time replacement. Just something different to drink throughout the day. Especially instead of a second Mountain Dew.

    Most likely has aspartame as the sweetener. :dunno:
     
  13. Must be something to make it taste good. :dunno: I just bought a Brita filter a few days ago so I dont have to keep buying bottled water, plus then I'll drink a lot more water as it doesn't cost like .25 a bottle.

    How do you like it so far? We buy bottled water and when they're empty I fill them up with tap water and back in the fridge they go. My wife always knows when it's tap water and hates it.
     
  15. So far it actually seems to work. The tap water around here is not horrible or anything, but I dont like the taste it has. Putting it through the Brita tastes better definitely. The filter works a lot faster than I thought it would too, I thought it was like one drop a second but its a pretty good stream and you could fill up the pitcher in a few minutes. Just buying a case of water a week seemed to get a little ridiculous and a waste of money. :dunno:

    Only reason I bother is I live in the country and water is SHIT.

    i heard carbonated water/drink with food is no good. triggers a part of your stomach, letting undigested food into your intestines, resulting in food digesting in your intestines or decomposing in your intestines... may cause abdominal bloat? :hsughno:

    I drink club soda when I go to bars :dunno: if anybody asks I just say it's vodka and 7up then I pretend to be drunk and do inappropriate things. that's as close as I get to mineral water.
