    Lately Ive been drinking crystal light with water when I eat a meal. Its only got 5 calories, no sugar etc, but is this stuff bad for you in any way?

    I hear its not ideal, but if it helps your drink enough water, I'd go for it.

    It's basically artificially sweetened flavored water, drink as much you want.

    I personally hate it because it stains the shit out of stuff if you spill it on anything. Propel > *

    I keep the Crystal Light Hydration on the go packs in my turnout gear. They definitely help you recover in dehydrated situations.
    The normal ones should be alright for moderate consumption but it's still a processed foodstuff that costs money. I'll stick with tap water.

    Peach Tea or Lemonade FTW

    It leaves a weird aftertaste in my mouth though that's kinda scummy

    I drink the Nesle water with flavor in it :dunno:

    I prefer the Alberson's house brand stuff... their peach tea is great, all the rest of the standard crystal lite-style flavors are good too (raspberry, lemonade, etc)

    I get that sugar free iced tea mix from Walmart, 0 cals, I mix half of the recommended dose though, half a container to 64 ounces of water. If you follow their directions it tastes like shit and you can taste that aspertame crap. Cherry is my fave. I sip it thru the day at work.
