I love water, I sincerely prefer water
over any other beverage. But it was not always that way.
I used to love Pepsi and Coke and Sprite and so on. When I discovered how much sugar that these drinks contain and so many other drinks, as well, I tried to wean myself off sodas and replace them with water.
Each soda that I could give up daily meant another pound of weight loss (see Lose Weight Without Dieting), so cutting down or cutting out soda made good sense.
I still like Pepsi, Coke, Sprite, etc., but I really want water and not the other drinks. Somehow, water became delicious. I do not know why or how I came to love water, but I understand that I am not alone. Many others have had the same experience, so I hope the same will happen for you.
Water has so many healthful benefits and most other beverages have harmful benefits, so I urge you to give water a chance.
Water Filtration Systems:
For our planet's sake, I opted to get a water filtration system.
I have well water with iron so I opted for a Water Logic System. It was being advertised on one of those TV sales networks. They promised that it would make the best water that I had ever tasted or my money back. I tried it and I do love it and the water that it makes is the best that I have ever tasted.
I also love the fact that I am not using thousands of plastic water bottles each year.
I thank you for reading and wish you success on your weight loss journey.
