Default carbonated water

hi i drink tons of flavored water and they are mostly carbonated water. i was wondering if anyone could tell me if this is bad for me and if it still counts as water. i drink about 4 glasses of it. it has 0 calories and 0 carbs but it does have sodium. and also can sodium cause weight gain? please reply thanks

yes it does cause a gain if you too much of it. you are better off drinking regular water. glen

Luckily, it's just water weight gain If you are sensitive to sodium, or have problems retaining water, then drinking a lot of beverages that contain sodium can be a problem. It can't cause you to gain fat, though. I agree with Glen, regular water is usually the way to go I personally keep a Brita pitcher in the fridge so I always have ice cold filtered water, and a sliver of lemon is nice. Some of the flavored waters would be an equal substitute. What are you drinking?

Hmmm I drink Canfield's flavored seltzer...0 calorie, 0 carb, sodium free La Croix is another one and Whole Foods carries a few varieties as well.

I enjoy LaCroix, but only drink it occasionally now.

All flavored water has calories in it, there just under 4 grams so the Food companys don't have to put that on the tab.
