The links between artificial sweeteners and weight loss (or the lack thereof) have NOT been unequivocally linked to the sweeteners themselves. My personal opinion is that the reason there's a link is a psychological one. You are drinking a no-calorie drink, and you can therefore rationalize overeating since you "saved" calories in the drink. People tend to overeat because they see it as letting them eat more, since t hey're not drinking as many calories.

There's absolutely no evidence whatsoever that just adding some flavor to your water will sabotage your efforts.

I say no to artificial sweeteners and prefer real foods, I feel we have been manipulated by the idea that zero calories is good when in fact the food industry uses artificial ingredients to sell their products. Our local water source is pure mountain runoff and so I like the taste of water as it is. When I want to flavour it I add a squeeze of lemon, lime or orange into my glass.

I'm not wild about plain water, unless it's fresh from a sweet water spring. As an alternative, I use a lightly flavored iced tea with a hint of artificial sweetener. Just enough to take the edge off. I've been doing this for a few months now, and it seems to be helping me stay hydrated.

Artificially sweetened, flavored water will not hinder your weight loss.
Many people use them to help increase their water/fluid intake.
A general recommendation is no more than 4 artificially sweetened foods/beverages daily. The nice thing about the drops is you can use less of the sweetener and still get a tasty product.

I have researched flavored water but there are so many conflicting opinions. I would rather bypass the opinions and get facts from the professionals. What are the facts about flavored water? Right now I am using Dasani Drops. It has Zero calories but artificial sweeteners. If I drink flavored water I can easily get my recommended daily intake - if not I have a hard time. I do not want flavored water to hinder my weight loss. Is flavored water okay?
