Water



Recommended Posts

I have been getting enough Water in me here lately. Is it ok to drink flavor water and do it count as our water intake?

I wanna say yes! You mean like with Crystal Light? My sister had bypass 7 years ago and she always said that that counts because after all it is water!

When I went in for my pre op class, my nutritionist said to include all Clear Liquids towards your liquid intake. I counted Water of course, but then also clear protien drinks like Isopure, Vitamin water, Powerade zero, propel, sobe lifewater, crystal light, and even broth. I plan on trying out TrueLemon, I heard is like a water with lemon, just like at the restaurant :P

I was overjoyed, because I knew I would get tired of plain water...So I went shopping...

Like MM said all liquids count except alcohol & possibly caffienated drinks

In addition to Water, I use flavored powder mixes, iced T, iced coffee (decaf), even watermelon (yep it counts :P). And I use splenda (all are sugar-free), also, I like the s/f popsicles too.

Hope this helps you out :)

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
