I have an iced tea maker...you don't necessarily have to make tea in it...sometimes i put slices of ginger in the filter or mint leaves and then you can add a little lemon or lime juice after it brews for flavor and a sweetener like stevia, agave or Splenda. Fresh and yummy!
Of course, you can always make various teas also-green, black, white, and red. Go crazy! One of my favorites is Good Earth sweet n spicy tea because you do not have to sweeten it at all and it's still delicious.

Addicted to soda? I know I was! Try flavored seltzer water to satisfy your carbonation cravings. Not only does seltzer water count towards your eight cups of water per day, after a while you won't even miss soda! And if you check out the store brand of seltzer water, you'll also end up saving some money, because it's less expensive than soda, too!
Diet soda is nothing but trouble, especially for those of us who become addicted. 234
If you quit drinking diet soda and replace it with water and/or tea with no artificial sweetener, you will be amazed at how much easier it is to stick to your diet plan. I lost 5 pounds of bloating the first week I quit diet soda. I was drinking anywhere from 3 to 10 cans of soda a day. Not good!
