I have started drinking something new recently. In the morning I have a mug (latte size) of hot water with a spoon full each of lemon juice, lime juice and coconut oil, a packet of sweetener. It is good hot and sometimes I have it cold without the CO. I just use the real lemon type 100% juice and the spoon I stir with rather than a measuring spoon.

I used to drink and eat a lot of products with aspartame, until I learned about all the horrible effects. I use stevia now in tea, coffee, and sometime Zevia (soda sweetened withs stevia).

I love drinking water with lemon squeezed in it too.

I have tried to use stevia, but I cannot stand the chemical taste. It's going to waste in my pantry--in liquid and powdered form.

the only one i was able to stand was by the brand that makes sugar in the raw. it's called - stevia in the raw *go figure* and i think it is more palatable.

Yeah, I've bought that too, and it's a little better, but Splenda is the only one I like.

I asked for and got a Soda Stream for Christmas but haven't had the chance to try it yet. We're going away for a couple of weeks and I figured I'd use up the diet sodas I have around the house before I switch over - I really want to stop drinking the diet sodas but love love love carbonation.

Soren - is your super ginger tea something you buy or is it your own concoction? I LOVE gingerale and figure giving up the diet Canada Dry is going to be one of my tougher challenges.

Penguin- they sell regular and diet syrup ginger ale (and a ton of other flavors) at target and other stores, for the soda stream. Some I can't get in Canada (diet dr Pete is the dr pepper-like flavor), but regular and diet ginger ale are available and taste just like canned.

That said, my super ginger tea is from David's tea, you can find it online easily. It's herbal tea, and I'll try to remember to brew some and fizz it, and report back tomorrow. It's a dd, nothing better to do! Lol.

I also use davinci syrups in my soda stream - well actually, I make the fizzy water, then add the syrup (but you can fizz anything, except dairy).
I love the watermelon flavor- sooo refreshing, and tastes like real melon juice to me. I like peach, and of course grape. Didn't like the kahlua coffee as a soda.
But chocolate is great, and reminds me of the diet chocolate waist watchers soda.

Oh, and torani has a diet black cherry syrup that is very very good as a soda. Again, similar to the waist watchers flavor.

I had caffeine today, can you tell????

Lol

It definitely took me a while to get used stevia. Its a different taste. The only one I like is the powdered 'Better Stevia' from NOW foods. A little goes a long way!
It cannot compare to splenda, but in my opinion worth getting used to

Thanks Soren! I can't wait to try the SS and appreciate all the tips.

I'm not usually a tea drinker, but all these yummy-sounding teas have me intrigued.

Does this seem to satisfy you for long periods?

For the last 2 or 3 weeks I just have the lemon lime drink for brunch each DD and pretty often on UD, too. It holds me about a couple of hours. Then, I might have an herbal tea, an iced tea or a boiled egg. By that time I am prepping dinner. Sometimes I will have it again a couple of hours after dinner. I don't like coffee at all and I now like this lemon-lime drink a little more than herbal tea. Sometimes after dinner I will have an almond milk or coconut milk hot chocolate with splenda instead.

I have cut way back on Diet Mt Dew now...less than one every other day.

I've always thought truvia tasted great.

I tried Diet Cran Cherry, and it is delicious! Thanks for the tip, Carol. I'm always learning great tips from the JBs.

Not sure you can get it over there? but Dandelion and Burdock soda or cordial. Interesting side effect, you will lose weight drinking it! it has an interesting natural diuretic effect, and I usually drop 3 to 4 lbs when i drink it.
Just make sure it is actual dandelion & Burdock extract, not just flavouring

I need a soda stream. I got rid of a lot of clutter on my counter tops recently, so I could add something.

skinny girl brand also had flavored diet mixers that you can have on the rocks with or without alcohol for those UD or DD. I think Jose Cuervo also had margarita mix like blood orange or strawberry you could do virgin as well and they come SF or low calorie. We have Beverages and More (BevMo) out here. Maybe you could find something like that?
