    Default Drinks

    Ok so i'm trying to cut pop from what I drink. I know it will be hard though. I've tried but it didn't last more than a couple months.

    What kind of drinks do you drink that are good for you? I'm a Mountain Dew and Pepsi drinker but I just want to cut the caffaine. I've tried Gatorade and Lemonade and while they are good it got old drinking those all the time. Besides those have sugar in them and that ain't good.

    Any ideas out there? I know water, OJ, the usual but anyone got anything I don't know?

    Try Propel if you haven't already, it's made by gatorade, but it only has 25 calories per 16.9 oz bottle. Black Cherry, Berry, and Grape are all pretty good.

    It's sweetened with sucrose, instead of high fructose corn syrup, like most regular sodas have in them. So while it's not completely calorie free, it's a lot better for you than soda, or regular juice.

    They even have them on the little individual serving packets you can pour in a water bottle.

    And as far as lemonade, I drink the Country Time light, it's only 5 calories per can, and it's pretty good.

    Hell, a pitcher of Kool-Aid is always good at home, as well. Or even Capri Sun.

    I broke the SODA (sorry I'm a west coast dude, "pop" sounds funny) habit by eating some sort of fruit every time I had a craving. It's a very healthy way to break that habit.

    Gotta go with Iced Tea because it has almost no or a very negligible nutritional value without sweeteners but you can always and a little Sugar or even some artificial sweetening if you'd like. Also the antioxidants are supposed to be good for you but I don't drink it for them...

    I'm with Iced Tee (tha sounds kinda Hip)

    This sounds funny but I really like the carbonated water we get at Meijers (it is their brand).....for a flavorful water try adding an individual packet of Crystal Light to a small bottle of water....people around my office are addicted to that (non-sugar variety)...but I really like the carbonated water. Gives ya that same fizziness of soda-pop (compromise )

    Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi

    There used to be some pretty good low sugar caffeine free fruity clear drinks in plastic quart bottles at Walmart, about 10-15 different flavors and they're cheap.
    Don't thank me, I'll kill ya.

    I didn't post it because I thought it was already understood.

    I had an 80 proof Strawberry Lemonade at Ruby Tuesday's this week. Pretty good.

    I love strawberry lemonade.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Vodka and Gatorade/Red Bull is a personal favorite. I also like Jack and Coke.

    And yes, I have a buzz right now from some Killians.
