Hammock Rider is right, Vitamin water is really not that much better for you then soda. It has over 100 calories a bottle and has almost as much sugar as a coke does.

I'd reccomend you try some sugar free flavored water, which can taste pretty good.

Vitamin Water Zero has . . . wait for it . . . ZERO calories.  But it contains vitamins and antioxidants.  I sometimes drink it instead of regular water when I'm working out.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

Nothing feels better than cold, fizzy soda going down my throat.  No beer, occasional ice water.. but Coke, RC and Dr. Pepper are my favorite imbibables.

I really need to lower the soda.  I did switch to Energy Drinks like Red Bull and Monster.  Just as bad but I don't like coffee and they give me energy.  Meanwhile, I'm sitting here with a beer.

So I guess you no longer have a Coke problem, then?   Wink

Soda is poison for the most part but so is alcohol. Caffeine is terrible for you period. Water (clean water) is the best thing you can drink plain and simple. Different types of juice (apple, V8 fusion, health break mixtures) I do enjoy as well. I also drink Lacteeze milk.

it appears that I have to find a new soda substite, after a bit of research it appears that the level of insulin in the vitamin water and has been running wild on me, I'll just leave it at that, and resulted to very irregular sleeping patterns in a related note

If you really want to be healthy, drinking just water (nothing in it, excepting negligible things like a dash of lemon) is the way to go.

Juices are not so great either, for the most part.  I had a label-reading apotheosis once -- I told my wife that Hawaiian Punch had fewer calories in it than the Fred Meyer apple juice does.  (it does, by the way.)  That floored her.  :)

Not that either of 'em are good for you.

At work, I drink nothing but water -- I keep a cup of it full and cold all day and I probably drink six or eight of those during a typical day, maybe ten of them.  But at home I mix in a can of pop most days.  :P  That's my only serious food vice -- I like simple carbohydrates.  No alcohol, no particular caffeine problem, no tobacco... but I do like carbs.  Fortunately I like to run and swim too.

I can almost live on sodas as I don't drink hard liquor (a beer once in a while, nothing more) but energy drinks and mineral water are rarities for me. Tap / faucet water in South Africa is safe to drink so why buy expensive water?  Drink

I drink maybe 8 cans a day of caffeine free, sugar free Mountain Dew.  I can't drink regular pop, the sugar just coats my mouth and it tastes gross for hours afterwards.

I drink way too much of it. Not that healthy but I figure we live once, enjoy it.
