I add fresh mint or sliced cucumbers to my water from time to time.
I also will have a flavored seltzer water on occasion or add an electrolyte tablet to water.

I really like Zevia which is a stevia sweetened soda. I find that it tastes the same as diet soda to me.

Fruity carbonated water. Most I've seen are 0 calories or low calorie.

Homemade iced tea or lemonade (I prefer green tea, sometimes fruit teas)

I have found that the fizz is not as important as the caffeine

however, iced coffee can do some good
or green tea.

I'm with MLAN, you need to figure out what spot it hits before you can figure out how to replace it. Adding raspberries to your water will do nothing as far as a caffeine fix goes. I will also say to start where you are and play around with one diet soda a day until you find something that you like. This way you're mostly keeping everything else the same and then just trying alternatives until you find something you like.

-google first. ask questions later.

Water is your friend. Eight glasses a day is oh so good for you. Here's what SparkPeople says: https://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_articles.asp?id=1014

Unsweetened ice tea with lemon is worth trying.

It may be helpful to figure out why you like the diet drinks. That may be key in figuring out a substitution. Is it the fizz? try sparkling water. Is it the caffeine? Try tea (black, green, white, oolong have caffeine) or coffee. Is it the flavor or the chilled drink? Herbal teas and true teas (mentioned above) have a lot of different flavors and can be served hot or cold,

I gave up diet soda too & I feel much better for it. Cravings are far fewer now. I like to keep a pitcher of water with fruit in it. The varieties are endless from basic lemon or lime to mixes of different fruit. Sometimes I throw an herbal fruit teabag in the mix which makes it look more like a fruit drink. It is really refreshing & even my hubby has come to enjoy it.

I am looking for a healthier substitute for diet sodas. I really don’t like water, I can drink it if I have too. Sodas are really a big expense for me now. I am just looking for some alternatives .
