I drink iced tea in the summer, espresso in the winter and wine every day. I don't waste calories on soda or fruit drinks - they just taste like syrup to me.

I like the Crystal Light lemonade and iced tea to go packs.

I just bought Lipton's Green Tea to Go. It's sugar free and taste pretty good.

I drink tons and tons and tons of water but I also like to enjoy a nice cup of Hot Black tea in the evening or morning or whenever I feel like relaxing.

I actually just saw white tea in the store for the first time - looks "interesting".

9 - 10 glasses of water a day..I have one cup of coffee a day (in the morning). I have hot green tea at least twice a day and for a snack around three or four times a weeks I have a V8 Fusion Strawberry/Banana drink. Or just a V8 Vegetable juice. I like it because not only does it taste good, but I get a serving of vegetables...or a serving of vegetables and fruit. Also, I like to have a glass of red wine at least 4 times a week with dinner.

I'd heard or read the same thing somewhere, MGIRL22, about the water, so I've been averaging about a gallon a day. Don't know if its doing anything weight wise but it sure is helping to keep me running to the restroom! (lol)

Alcohol every few weeks, but that's it.

Oh, and I have learned that you will ONLY lose weight if you drink 9-10 glasses of water or more a day. For example, if your only drinking water, but only drinking 4-5 glasses a day like I was, you wont lose anything. So, youve got to drink alot of it. Dont go overboard though, but 9-10 glasses a day is good.

I do drink skim milk occasionally when I have cereal - I forgot all about that.

IN ADDITION TO WATER, I DRINK 100% FRUIT JUICE, DECAF TEA/COFFEE, AND THE OCCASIONAL GLASS OF 1% MILK.

OF COURSE, I DRINK WATER MORE OFTEN THAN ANYTHING ELSE!

I get so bored with water but I continue to drink it. Someone on another team told me about Water Sensations which is colorless water flavoring, no sugar, no calories. It comes in several flavors and makes the water taste great. (to check it out, go to www.watersensations.com).

Other than water, I'm drinking Arizona diet and regular Green Tea, and white tea. Also drinking grapefruit juice

Same with me, CAT - I am definitely more aware of my thirst since I made water the number one beverage. Strange how that works!

Tons of water. But I do allow myself a diet coke once in a while. Loose tea is my replacement for coffee. I only put a tsp. of cream which drastically cut the amount of calories I was getting from my coffee. I also indulge in a small latte light. It's skim milk and splenda but this is only when it's been a really good week. And when I can't deal with water any longer...crystal light.

I never really thought about it but yes, mostly all I drink is water. I occasionally have a suger free drink but hardly. Other than that the only other liquid I have is skim milk in my cereal.

Water is my main drink. I gave up pop/soda over 4 years ago. If I even drink a Ginger Ale, when my stomach is upset, I have to really dilute it, because it's too sweet. I have to do that with juice as well. It is extremely too sweet. However, that Lipton Citrus Tea is very good! I try to drink only the serving size in addition to not drinking it too often, because of the sugar content. So, this is what I do!

Thanks!

I was glad to see that I am on the right path, I won't worry that I am not drinking anything else. I also noticed since I started drinking water, I am a lot more aware of my thirst.

I don't drink water exclusively, but, like you said, keeping up with the 8 cup guideline(and a lot of times more than that), I'm not desiring to have other beverages much -- my thirst is sated and I don't look to juices/teas/etc so much.

I'll have something else if I have a craving for it, but that's it.

I drink water 90% of the time. At dinner I let myself have a Diet Root Beer once a week or so. Sometimes I splurge on an Oregon Chai Tea. I stay away from juice because of all the sugar.

Water only for me, although once in a while I'll get the urge and mix about two tbs of cranberry juice in my water.

Mostly water now, about 10-12 cups a day. In addition to that I drink 4oz orange juice with breakfast, and a large coffee because it's my addiction.

Also note that herbal teas count for your water intake because they're naturally decaf!

I mostly drink water. But I also like hot tea and good coffee (but not cold coffee drinks). I drink a cup of skim milk at least 4 times a week. Also, orange juice.

But mostly water. I gave up soda's and sugary drinks early on.

I drink water mostly. The exception is skim milk with my cereal in the morning. I also drink green tea it is good for you. I don't drink juices. They are higher in sugar content and I would rather have the fruit or vegetable. emoticon emoticon .

I do find myself drinking more water than anything else - that's not so bad, I guess, but I must admit I do get bored with it. That's when I mix in the crystal light. I love cranberry juice and I do drink it occasionally but like you, it's primarily H2O for me!

I am finding that after I drink 12 glasses of water, I am not drinking much of anything else. I have had fruit juice twice since I joined Spark, but other than that and the occ. decaf coffee. I drink water most of the time. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem.
