Cut Juice With Water Or Club Soda/seltzer/sp arkling Water
Members Were Sparked
Juice can be high sugars and calories. However, if you cut it with water, it lasts longer, tastes less sweet, but just as satisfying, and keeps those calories in check. Instead of water, use club soda for a great soda substitute! I now only use a splash of juice for flavor.
This works for lemonade, or even sodas cut with club soda.

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!
If you find it hard to give up soda, try seltzer water! Please do not confuse this with Club Soda or Ginger Ale. Seltzer water has no calories, no sweetener (sugar or artificial), and no sodium. With this you get your "bubbles" without the sugar and chemicals. Who needs that?
You can get seltzer water in cans. Not all stores carry it but I get mine at Safeway. My family drinks it plain, but if that's not your style, try it with a squeeze of lemon, lime, or a splash of juice. You'll love it!

People say to drink a lot of water. But water gets boring. So, I drink seltzer (sparkling water) instead! I personally like plain seltzer but there are a lot of different flavors that have no calories. With seltzer, it's a lot easier to drink more water and use everyone else's water-related-secrets
I personally like the Oringinal Vintage Seltzer. But I really like Poland Spring Seltzer for the lime, lemon, and raspberry flavors.
