Have you noticed any huge improvements to your overall health like weight loss, improved skin?

i do notice a brightness to my skin but tbh i've never had weight or skin issues so i can't really speak on it. i'm also very active so i guess its a combination of my lifestyle. physically i have to say that i just feel better overall, i'm not as tired as i use to be and i notice that when i drink water right before going to bed and soon as i wake up i have more energy and can concentrate better.

Good thread Maysay! I NEED to drink more water. Hearing everyone say that after a while of drinking only water, and their body begins to crave water, gives me hope. I LOVE sweet tea and juice, but drink too much.

Yeah I noticed that I woke up more refreshed in the mornings when I drank lots of water too.

I do for the most part.

I can go months with drinking only still & seltzer water (without the artificial sweeteners). Sometimes I have a few days where I'll get a soda or juice. But rarely, if ever.

I used to drink tons of sweet tea, soda & juice. All that sugar. Like you said, it's not healthy. Over consuming sugar actually affects your brain & food suppressing hormones.

Most Americans are addicted to sugar and don't even realize it.

when I did used to drink soda back in the 80's I always had to add water to it to get it down.  Same w/  juices. My GFs knew to put some water in my glass lol.

I've convinced myself this is not a problem...but I know I'm in denial and that there is no way that this habit can be good.

But is it really that bad? What if I compensate by not having any other sugar? I can't do artificial sweeteners so that's not an option. And cucumber water and fruit water and all that is no substitute.

Anybody ONLY drink water? No soda, juice, etc. How do you do it?
I drink too much water . A case in 5 days . Water will make your tummy fat after a certain age . I try to drink G2 by Gatorade . Taste great compared to the regular . Dilute your drinks with spring water until you can break the habit .Too much sugar can affect your lupus sweetie . HTH Smile

I think green tea sweetened with a little honey is ok too. if your craving tea. I statrted buying 100% juice and adding a little splash to seltzer water for my soda kick.

sodas like coca cola and pepsi automatically cause my bladder to burn when I pee and i break out something terrible. That stuff is poison.

I used to drink 1 mt dew a day (the bottle that you can re-cap). It was strictly for medicinal/caffeine purposes. When I stopped needing so much caffeine, I stopped drinking them cold turkey. Never looked back. I wince now when I think of drinking mt dews! but it worked.
