Crystal Light?

That's ok for induction on Atkins right?

It depends. If you're cutting out all artificial sweeteners (AS), then no. If you're only using sucralose (splenda) then no. If you read the book and see where it says you can have artificial sweeteners but you have to limit it, then yes. If you're like me and have to use it sometimes to chug all that water, then yes

You might just try using less. I am now getting 6-8 22oz glasses of water out of ONE packet of CL--just the barest hint of flavor.

Get used to water. All that artificial sweetener can't be good for you.

I myself have learned to love it. I take a 1L water bottle with me wherever I go.

I use one of the to go packets in about 40 ounces of water, which is twice the serving suggestion. Makes me drink way way more, but I feel I have diluted a lot and it still tastes fine. Can't see how people tolerate full strength, actually.

I use to have CL a lot and other AS but I now learned to enjoy just plain cold water. The best thing I EVER did for myself is buy myself a nice cup; 24 oz cup and I take it everywhere. I fill it all day log. Drinking threw a straw makes it just easier for me and I don't miss my Lg. Fountain drink in the mornings. Embrace water...add some citrus if needed. Good Luck!
