    i drink water all day long at the office.

    at home, i needs my juice, but it adds up to buy so many bottles of grape juice lite.

    considering crystal lite - cause i can just mix it with my existing water bottles.


    does OT FN approve of crystal lite and is this shit available at costco?

    I buy the tubs that you mix with 64 oz of water and put it in a pitcher. I personally buy the Walmart brand since it's half the cost and just as good. It's the one thing that gets me by when I'm craving something sweet

    water is the best, use brita. nothing beats that seriously

    crystal lite is full of sugar. glucose fructose ...lite or not. id stick with water or pure 100% juice but mostly water. it has the highest impact liquid for bb.

    i agree with you on water being better, but crystal light doesn't have any sugar in it. it has sucralose, which supposedly doesn't get recognized by the body as a sugar so it is still 0 calories.

    Seconded.

    There's much more documentation in regards to aspartame being bad, but even that is arguable.

    i don't use it because i'm "bored" of water. I use it to cover the nastness of BCAAs

    i'm not advocating sucralose or aspartame, just wanted to clarify that there's no fructose or glucose in it.

    This was in the range of several kg for a rat, somewhere on the order of 2000 times the average daily intake of a human being.

    blah blah blah, OMG youre consuming a whole 45 calories of sugar in half a gallon of crystal light!

    better than the hundreds of calories id drink of fully sweetened drinks or of candy looking for something sweet.

    fuckit i dont have the willpower of zues, i drink it, coke zero, diet ice tea, coffee, tea, and a fuckton of WATER

    just dont make it your main and only source of beverage, but having it at home after work isnt gonna kill ya.
