Non Plain Water Drink Choices



Recommended Posts

Tea, a personal favorite.

I also have a Water Infuser pitcher I keep in the fridge and flavor my Water with whatever sounds good/whatever I have on hand. If you look around you can get one cheap.

My go-to is Sobe Water. I LOVE it! Zero calories with added nutrients/vitamins. I go through about 2 - 20 ounce bottles a day. Propel and Crystal Light are too sweet for me.

I'm struggling with this too as well now. Can't seem to get Water to go down easily (including Hint) and the artificial sweeteners in most "sugar free" items has become nauseating. Here's what I'm drinking now, but would love any other ideas:

  • Herbal Teas
  • Caffeine free coffee
  • Coconut water (has carbs so can't have it daily)
  • Plain water (yuk)
  • Vitamin Water 0 (but it's beginning to get to me)

I know this could go away in a few months, and I wish I knew the science behind why my brain wants these things to be intolerable... but any hydration hacks? So far I've captured:

  • Watermelon
  • Sugarfree popsicles
  • Watered down juices

Actually - I’m over the Water thing. Severe bathroom issues have now helped my mind cross over to suck it up. I will get watermelon tomorrow though.

I am in Clear Liquids only of my pre op diet. Here are My favorites so far

- hint water! Watermelon and pineapple are my favorite but I haven’t had a bad one. I’ve loved hint Water since before I was even thinking about getting wls.

-trimino Protein water in coconut/pineapple. This has 7 grams of whey protein isolate. Ice cold the flavor was decent, but I hated the apple flavored one.

- a&w root beer packets. I found these at Walmart with the crystal light. I HATE that fake sugar after taste of water enhancers, and while I have never beem a big soda drinker my drink of choice was root beer when I did. This tastes EXACTLY like a root beer minus the carbonation, but still only has 10 calories in a pack (one pack per 16 oz water).

I have some Premier Protein clear out for delivery today, so hopefully it doesn’t taste awful.

I drink.. Water, Minute Maid light lemonade (5 cals), and Powerade Zero.

And herbal teas on occasion.

I've been plopping an herbal tea bag in my massive Water bottle and drinking that. It seems to hit my stomach a little less hard than just the plain water.

I also do hot tea and water down the occasional Protein water. I hate how sweet they are in their 'pure' form.

I like Hint a lot, but it seems to hit my stomach pretty hard still.

You're the second person I read today that likes Hint, I don't think anyone sells it around here.

I dislike hint Water. I’m currently drinking g2, Powerade zero, nature twist, Decaf tea and coffee and Lipton diet teas. I also do water packs all Flavors.

@Frustr8–Target sells Hint if that helps.
Also Gatorade Zero orange flavor has been my go-to drink. I hated any type of Gatorade pre-WLS now it tastes so much better than Water to me.

Why is that?

I am the same way, pre-op I only drank Water, and tea (and a little wine😉). Now I want to drink ANYTHING besides water.

Is it bc we are eating so much less that having flavor any way is helpful?

Having an infused water pitcher in the fridge has helped me a lot, way cheaper than buying lots of potions and drinks. Only problem is that my kiddos want to drink all of mommy's "juice water". 😜

When I want something different I drink a Bai drink. The coconut is awesome and their Watermelon or Blueberry are great too.
