Sick of Water? Water Enhancers Rock!



Recommended Posts

I purchased a couple Crystal Light Water enhancers to jazz up my water. I love them! A few drops, 5 calories, and BAM! Instant strawberry lemonade or some other great flavor.

They can easily be carried in a purse, backpack, briefcase (does anyone even carry a briefcase anymore?) - okay, a man purse. You get my point. There are several brands and flavors to chose from. I found them in the coffee aisle of my grocery store. Yum! Give them a shot! :)

My local health food store carries these http://sweetleaf.com/stevia-water-enhancer/

The raspberry lemonade is amazing, the peach mango is too sweet. They were $4.99 at my local store, which doesn't have the best prices. They are sweetened with stevia.

I avoided these kind of Water enhancers but I found since surgery, I really only want to drink Fiji or Smart Water plain, and tap water is a struggle. This enhancer is cheaper and better for the environment than drinking Fiji water all day.

I drink Vitamin Water Zero, they have lots of different flavors and are full of Vitamins. I cannot stomach plain Water since my bypass. Don't know why.

I also have lots of tiny 1 bottle powder mix by Crystal Lite . I put it in a water bottle, keep in the fridge and use when I need to drink. Nice change.

I have not tried the drops yet, maybe I will.

@@Madeleine Renee I've had the same experience with plain Water. Water used to be my favorite beverage, and I rarely ever drank sodas. Now, I can't tolerate plain water. It actually makes me nauseas. Weird. I've never been a Crystal Light or Vitamin water type person, but now I am!

Every day I take 1/4 to 1/2 of a New whey fruit Punch Protein bullet, pour it into my 20 oz water container, and add half a Crystal Light -- one of those tiny foil packs. That way I get Protein and water. I like the raspberry green tea and the strawberry flavors. They make the syrupy protein stuff palatable.

Great idea thinside. I also use Water flavorings and have done for years. I especially like a pina colada one I found in PA.

One more thing - hubby just got me a Yeti 20 oz. tumbler. OMGosh. This thing really is amazing. Stays cold all day - ice melts forever slowly if you like ice. Wirth the investment since all we drink is Water and need it to stay interesting!!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
