Maybe try drinking tea to get a little caffeine, but much healthier than soda. Also, if you love the fizz of soda, you could try drinking seltzer water. I hated it at first, but now I’ve gotten used to it and it helps be drink much more water because it’s a little more exciting than just flat water. I also got a really nice Tervis tumbler cup that I carry around or have at my desk or on a side table with water in it. If it’s in front of me, I will just keep sipping it without even realizing.

Drink water.  Stop drinking so many sugary drinks like juice and soda.   If you really want something different, try the Mio flavor enhancers or something like that which won’t add a ton of sugar.

I second the PP- I drink iced tea and seltzer.

Drink diet? Are your trying a liquid fast, or just trying to avoid drinking your calories? If it’s the latter, wean off the soda and replace it with water. If you mean you’re not eating solid food, I can’t support that.

Ap2010:  You need WATER.  Not juice or coke.  WATER.  I bet if you drank 8 glasses of water in one day you’d feel so much better the next day.

Ap2010:  In small quantities, espresso shouldn’t be harmful unless you’re really sensitive to caffeine. If you notice things like trouble sleeping or headaches, I’d try to cut back and see how that affects things.

One shot of espresso has less caffeine than a cup of black coffee, but it’s concentrated.  One shot of espresso (say in a tall latte) has about 70mg of caffeine, while your typical tall black coffee has about 120mg of caffiene.  Espresso is also less acidic, because the water is pushed through finer grinds at a faster rate than brewed coffee.  Like anything caffeinated, it should be consumed in moderation.

Definitely focus on drinking more water and less juice and soda.  Try adding fruit to your water- lemons, limes, berries, frozen mango, grapefruit, mint….you can do wonders with a boring glass of water!  🙂

These days there’s no excuse not to drink water with so many good enhancers.  Crystal Light has a large variety of them.  You need to cut the soda and juice and drink more water.  Also, be physically active; that’ll keep you energized and energy generates energy.  I don’t see anything wrong with a little espresso.

Ap2010:  It is normal to feel tired as part of caffiene withdrawal. Drink more water. Tea is also a good choice, and there are lots of caffiene free options if you can no longer have caffienated drinks.

My New Years resolution is to cut down on my soda intake as well as atrificial sweeteners. Its day one, and I am already jonesing for a diet cherry coke! I’m going to try and limit it to when I go out to eat, which a couple times a month.
