What can I drink besides water and coffee?

Since August I have only drank coffee in the morning and water the rest of the day. Is there ANY low carb juice at all that I can drink? It would be nice on occaision to drink something other than water!!!

Canfields makes some nice seltzer waters that have no caffiene, sugars, fake sugars or sodium. They are lightly flavored and bubbly. Love them! They have lemon, orange, unflavored and lime. I like the Snapple diet teas too.

i take a swig of powerade zero a couple times a day...kind of use it like mouthwash...just to change up the taste in my mouth. the truth is, it seems everything has "something" in it...aspartame, etc...kind of frustrating as i dont drink tea....water and coffee for me. some people do fine with soda, aspartame, caffeine, etc...i just cut it all out early on and haven't gone back. almost wish i hadn't. would love a diet sunkist every now and then.

diet rite if you do soda seems to be the consensus...sweetened with splenda....as is coke zero...??

WOE: Simply low-carb. No simple carbs, except alcohol

I'm partial to Nestle's flavoured water without Splenda or whatever, but these are alternatives you might want to consider: Splash Flavors
Zero calories, zero carbs.

Occasionally (only because I tend to dislike carbonated beverages) I will make a "float" out of a diet root beer or diet orange with a scoop of frozen whipped topping.
Iced tea, love it, but only drink if I go out to eat. If I make it at home with Splenda I will drink up all my carbs

There is a juice that is low calorie and lo carb. I think it has 3 carbs in a eight ounce glass. I use to drink it.Got tired of it. It is Diet V8 splash. The one I drank was orange and some kind of fruit. you might google it.

Dude, I didn't know they had diet v8splash! Love that stuff!

WalMart's brand of Crystal Lite type stuff has an apple flavor that really tastes a lot like apple juice! That and the pomegranate cherry Crystal Lite are Awesome.

I also love doing the "float" thing by adding hwc to root beer and orange diet sodas.

*hijack* Alligatorpie, I love your new avatar! Super fun!

Before consuming artificial sweetners such as splenda/sucralose/aspartame/sacchrin/asculfame potassium research them to see if the risks are worth the consumption and note that some of them still have calories and carbs (like splenda).

We drink Crystal Lite, Diet Soda, Coffee, Hot Tea, Cold tea, green tea, Water, lemonade made with liquid Splenda, cucumber water. There is Hood milk, almond milk, and now they have those flavor enhancers on the market. Bed,, bath and beyond sells them. I don't drink milk but DH does like it on occasion. I am careful with Crystal light because it is made with powdered Splenda which has a carb per glass even if it says no carbs.
