Home brewed Iced Tea sweetened with Stevia instead of artificial sweeteners. I also buy the premixed tea when I am feeling lazy, Turkey Hill brand diet green tea with Gensing and Honey isn't too bad...their other diet teas are too strong or too sweet IMO.

I have also developed the habit of drinking hot tea. Pre-band I never drank Hot drinks but I find that a cup of hot tea 30 minutes after each meal seems to relax my stomach.

I have a glass of milk with sugar free carnation instant Breakfast ( I can't stand plain milk), a cup of hot tea-with no sugar, but mainly I drink plain Water sometimes with a slice of lemon or lime added. Oh, yes, and I drink a beer 3 to 4 nights a week after work.

I found Lipton makes individuals packets you can add to your Water - in a lot of different flavors - and they do NOT contain aspartame - they are made with splenda. HINT - I also find that one packet in 32 oz of water is plenty sweet enough. They are difficult to find sometimes -- Target is where I get mine and they are with the coffee/teas NOT where the Crystal Lite and other drinks are located. We really like them. Also, my GNC carries Protein packets you can addd to water - you get Protein, plus the flavors are good. I don't use any of it regularly as I am one of those weird ones that actually likes drinking water.

I like Water with a wedge of lemon or lime but for a change of pace I have been making homemade fruit waters. Just plop a handful of frozen mixed berries, cherries, peaches, etc into a pitcher of water and let it sit in the fridge. :thumbup: You can also add orange slices or whatever else suits your fancy. Nice change of pace and healthy as I hate artificial sweeteners, they give me headaches.:rolleyes2:

Once in a while I like Life Water - the 0-calorie fuji apple pear one. It is refreshing, a nice change sometimes.
