Sodastream To Increase Water



Using a Soda Stream home water carbonator helped me to abandon soda entirely and increase my water intake.

I finally broke down and purchased a Soda Stream home carbonator after hearing the Nutrition Diva (podcast) rave about it. It changed my life. It is the one appliance that I will throw in the back of my car on a road trip to bring with me so I can keep drinking water. It carbonates home tap or filtered water. You can add syrups (reg or diet) or flavor essences to your own water

More Information:

At first I bought flavored diet gingerale or grapefruit juice. Then I graduated to flavor essences, then found I preferred plain carbonated water. After my lap-band surgery, I went back to the diet syrups (they make a mean peach iced tea) without carbonating the water. It's awesome! emoticon

  • I'm not someone who raves about much, but this machine requires no electricity, you can use your own filtered water. The only 'disposable' is a large CO2 cartridge which is available at many kitchen stores (and can be exchanged).

    am kind of sad that I can't have carbonated water for a while since my lap-band. I'm glad I figured out that the syrups (especially the diet peach iced tea) still taste good even without carbonating. - by MEINI002
