I just tried cucumber slices in my water today and I really enjoyed it! I also love mint in water. Lemon is good too.

Any liquid is okay as long as you count the calories, etc. I just read that again after a similar question this week.

You have received many good ideas, and yes those little artificially sweetened flavor packets do "count" as water. Many other type beverages also hydrate the body too: milk, juice, pop, diet drinks, coffee, tea,...but each as a limit for health regarding daily intake.

Erin, what a great idea about the frozen fruit! I usually don't have a problem getting all my water, but I like ways to mix it up!

How about seltzer? It's just water with bubbles. I find it quite refreshing.

I use frozen fruit. I bought a klean kanteen (insulated) off amazon that keeps my water really cold (it HAS to be cold or I won't drink it) I throw some frozen raspberries, blueberries or strawberries into the bottom and then add water on top. I reuse the same fruit until lunch then have it as "dessert" then toss in some new fruit.

I also really like the true lemon (and lime, grapefruit and orange) crystal packets. Great for when you are out and about!

Alot of people add cucumber,I personally like to do lime and mint.Also I read that if you use crystal light,you can count that as water because it doesn't have caffiene or sugar but you'd have to do a little more research on that to see if I'm right.

Hi folks,
I've been working on increasing my water intake. Some days I do ok, some days awful. I admit that I just don't like plain water and have a hard time. I don't want to drink ONLY water. What are some other options of things I can drink that might not be SO bad, but can give more of a variety? or something I can add to the water (besides lemon) to make it taste better/different somtimes?
