Great article! The way I read this article, a person should limit total caloric intake from beverages to around 200 daily. With Crystal Light being just 5 calories, I'm in NO danger of messing up my diet by having a couple a day!
Besides, the Crystal Light is what has me reaching for the water! I drink one with the mix-in with breakfast, then drink two 16.9 oz. bottles of water (plain) throughout the morning and at lunch. In the afternoon, when I really need a pick-me-up, I pull out another packet and have another bottle of water. My fifth (and sometimes sixth) bottle comes at night when I'm home, which is usually served plain.
I've lost 25 lbs in the past 5 months, and giving up ALL soda (and even icees) to drink Crystal Light and Water has been instrumental! I'm a FIRM believer in the power of water!
