    I guess I am the minority here, but I would much rather have water than CL..and I have never tried Propel. I just think that the taste of artificial sweeteners is terrible!
    I only drink water now...with the very rare glass of sweet tea. I am a girl of the south, so I cant totally cut out the tea!

    I drink crystal light because I don't like the taste of propel and I am not proud to say it but I hate plain water. What I am proud to say is that now that I started Phen I started drinking more plain water.
    I think it doesn't matter which one you drink as long as it is not soda or juice

    Staceyrella,

    I know you say you do not like the taste of water. How about drinking it extremely cold so it will be refreshing to the body...Just a simple idea...I do it!

    I absolutely count it! I would never get my water in. I do drink plain water, but more with the Crystal Light.

    I have the HARDEST time drinking just plain water. I always have. Lately I have been drinking tea... and if I am really thirsty and hot at work, I can drink plain water but it's easier to drink it room temp. and not real cold. Am I weird or what? LOL

    I drink Crystal Lite everyday...and yeah, I count it. IMO, it's still water. I think you can count that, tea, coffee, etc...it's better then sodas!

    weight watchers told us that it counts but it isn't idea to just drink that and not plain water.....not sure why, maybe because of the chemicals in crystal light. I"m sure if Heinz corp. owned it then they would surely promote it.

    i don't drink either one, but they do count. tea and coffee count, too. i could be wrong, but i think diet soda even counts toward your daily intake.

    I drink Crystal Lite in all my water b'c I can't stand plain water... so I have to count it. I'm trying to wean myselt off of it though... so now I only use 1/2 pack per water bottle. Hopefully soon I'll have it down to 1/4 and maybe even none.

    I was told this in nursing school...

    Our body is like 90% (maybe more) water. Water being H2o. When we add chemicals to it, we change the chemial make up of the water, thus making it something other than H2o. So when we drink Crystal light (And I DO!) we shoudn't count that as water.


    I'll get you, my pretty and your little dog too!

    I drink both, but I only have 1 Crystal Light or Propel a day. I drink over 100oz of water a day (including the one Crystal Light). When I went to Weight Watchers, they said you could count one of your Crystal Lights toward the recommended 64oz of water. Hope that helps!

    I drink crystal light, but I try to limit it 2 one or two packs a day. It still has a little caffeine in it (not a lot) but yea I try to drink regular water for the most part. I drink Propel every once in a while and I wouldnt count that as water b/c the full bottle has 50 cals i think & 7g of carbs..
    The proof is in the pics!!! <3





    Starting over again!!!!

    Hey, I do drink crystal light and I do count it. I think I end up drinking about 50/50 of that and plain water. My doctor didn't see anything wrong with drinking it when I asked her. I drink at least 100 oz of water/crystal light a day. Hope that helps.
    Keep on Keepin' on!
