What Do You All Drink?

Hello all



I used to drink a lot of diet coke but since following the bulletproof diet I have cut this out due to the sweeteners.



If you want a cold soft drink, what do you have? I get bored with water, raw milk and cold herbal tea.



Any ideas?

  • Um... they have those Zevia sodas at Whole Foods that are made with stevia and natural flavors. Not sure if those are ok or not, though.

    After many years I have finally managed to get my parents drinking sodas like these instead of more damaging products.



    Personally, I don't drink anything except water, freshly made vegetable juices and protein post workout.
  • I drink sparkling water with fresh lemon squeezed in. They have many sparkling water brands with, "natural flavors", but a plain one with fresh lemon/lime juice, is superb. If you give it a try, let me know.
  • diet iced tea? Thats always nice and refreshing..
  • Also after being off of diet coke for even a month, I found when i tried it again it made my mouth sore. There are various pieces of research talking about how bad it is for your teeth.
  • water with lemon juice and stevia-sweet, large variety of herbal and green tee with lemon juice, redbush tea, not much else available when trying to go the healthy way I guess. its not always super tasty but we need to drink so I get it in
  • Thanks all for the suggestions. I think I'll try some sparkling water with lemon juice and add some stevia if necessary.



    Apparently in the states, you guys get diet coke made with stevia - is that true? We don't get that in the UK, or any stevia based drinks.
  • I love La Croix sparkling water when I want something cold and refreshing other than plain water. I especially love the coconut flavor. I try to avoid all sweeteners (including stevia) and it has none.
  • They don't sell La Croix in the UK but just found a specialist website that imports it. image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />



    I'll give it a go (coconut flavour sounds good!)
  • Try some Kevita or something for a little change.

    water, green or white tea, rooibos (red tea), unsweetened coconut milk beverages.
  • How about kombucha?
  • In Eastern medicine, it is thought that cold drinks chill the liver. Bad idea at any time but especially on a program like this. I try to never drink anything cold, period. I drink hot/warm tea, room temp mineral water, kombucha once in a while. I take flushing supplements (charcoal, fiber) with at least 2 cups of warm/hot water. Finishing a meal with a glass of hot water or tea is also a great choice. Ive never been big on cold drinks, though. People would be horrified if they offered me a can of lukewarm soda and I said "No, its ok. Im good with no ice."



    If you really want a cold drink, sparkling mineral water with citrus or berries liquified in a blender and some stevia sounds good.

    kombucha, often mixed with water, black, green or herbal tea

    It doesn't get easier... It's you who gets better.

     

    Is your social worker in that horse?

     

    Success has a price, not a secret.

    Agree totally with CSp8 regarding cold drinks, I have lived in Asia for most of past 17 years and drinking cold water with or immediately after meals is seen as stupid, the norm is not to drink at all with meals and to drink warm water or tea after. Everyone seems to have the understanding that cold drinks and food don't mix.



    I've also found that drinking warm water shortly after bulletproof coffee helps (I often get a mild ache in my left lower back after bulletproof coffee especially if I up the butter and coconut oil content). Other than coffee I drink, green tea, water, fresh coconut, chamomile tea sometimes for sleep, and that's it (apart from occasional social alcoholic drink)
