Nothing.. I think black tea, or coffee would be okay, but I don't like them. I freeze my water, and drink it as it melts. That way it is cold, and I drink it 1-2 ozs at a time. I end up drink =ing 15 glasses a day, evenly spaced.

Mostly water. Coffee in the morning. I just purchased a pretty expensive masticating juicer, so I am able to have my absolute favorite juice in the morning, afternoon and night: carrot, beet, apple and spinach. It is soooo good. I love it. Also, the vegetable juice, because it digests so slowly, does great to kill the appetite. I've also gone gluten free and feel so great since the change in diet. I found out that I am gluten intolerant.
Also, since I've gone on this gluten free diet I've found that anything that is baked is entirely too sweet anymore. I no longer crave baked or fast foods.

In the morning during the work week i get my caffeine boost with black tea. I add 1/4 cup of milk, teaspoons sugar, and 1 packet of splenda to this, because that's how I like my tea. The rest of the day it's mostly my 32 ounce water bottle with a packet of propel zero or a splash of Mio. I try to get in 2 of those.
In the morning I have a coffee (small soy, caramel latte, 150cal) which is part of my breakfast, since I'm not big on food in the morning. The rest of the day I have water. With my dinner I like to have a diet ginger beer (25cal) or a small glass of juice (very rare).

95% of the time it's water. I also drink black iced tea with lemon & stevia and Crystal Light has a product called Crystal Light Pure made with truvia and natural sugar. I use the lemonade flavor to my bottle of water.

Water, green or herbal tea, almond milk, and the very occasional alcoholic drink (maybe once or twice a month.)
Other than water, I drink unsweetened tea -- more because back home tea is drunk with just a splash of milk and no sugar than because I don't like my tea sweetened -- and 1% milk. And, of course, the occasional beer or cocktail!

I've adopted drinking green tea. Lipton makes powder packs in different flavors that you add to a bottle of water. I also make my own green tea and sweeten it with Stevia, Truvia, honey, lemon juice, or a combination.

Coffee in the morning, and water throughout the day. SuperTarget has some very nice flavored waters and flavored sparkling waters (if you need the carbonation fix) for zero calories.
Try sweetening your iced tea with Splenda. You're doing great cutting out soda...now work on getting more water in.
So I've made it my goal to cut out soda, which I'm happy to say, I haven't had one since Feb. 21 (I think..lol..have to check...)...yes, I have been tempted at times..... I have to admit though, I can't give up my sweet tea, cut back, yes...but not totally give up...;-)
but my question is, what do you drink besides water?
