I only drink 3 Crystal Light drinks anyway.... so I don't think I will count them. Most of the time they are diluted half water with half the regular mix as well so about 2.5 calories per drink.

Generally speaking, I only count actual water, but some people count all fluids. I think a nice compromise would be to count only zero-calorie beverages.

Thank you. I don't drink soda anymore, and have given up sweet tea ( a huge deal since I am from the South *LOL*) and unsweet tea with artificial sweetener just does not taste good to me.... I can bare the Crystal light in small does so that is why I choose meal time. I just was unsure if I should or could add them to my water count. Thank you again.

It is your choice, but do realize that these artificially sweetened drinks are hydrating your body as does water.

I drink virtually nothing but water.I get my daily intake and then some, most days a lot more due to the heat. However, with my meals Crystal Light tea, lemonade, grape or other flavors. Can I or should I count those with my water intake? I never have, but I was uncertain if I should or could?
