    I have been drinking dietcoke before being pregnant so no calories, but now pregnant again dont wasnt to risk the caffine, so i am drinking ribena but the sugar content is high and so are the calories

    I would drink water but it makes me sick everytime i drink it, and cant drink sugar free versions as the saccarin or aspartamine causes me problems and hurt my throat so cant drink it

    dont know what the hell to do i do not know what to drink

    help !

    I have started drinking more G2 Gatorade (it is the lower calorie version of Gatorade). Like getting water, but tastes better. Juice is high in Sugar, but I drink that too. I also do not like water, but force myself to drink at least 2-3 glasses a day inbetween my decaf tea and gatorade.

    Herbal teas? Peppermint might help with any nausea

    I expect so! Most low cal soft drinks will do I think Hun! Have you tried drinking water with some high juice cordial in it? Or flavoured water? I'm a diet coke fiend! I've been drinking caffine free! Xxx

    Sorry babe, I was a pepsi Max addict but now I can't stand the taste.

    I have been drinking a small amount of apple and blackcurrent juice mixed with sugar free lemonade and it is YUMMY and low in Cal cause I am only having a small amount of the juice. Since you can't drink the sugar free I am not sure what you could have.
    My neighbour likes Ribena mixed with soda water.

    You can always use the Diet lemonade with juice instead of the sugar free.

    Could you try adding lemon or lime to your water? Maybe it would make it sit better with you...

    I'm avoiding diet pops and regular pop so I drink a lot of water and a tiny bit of juice. Not very exciting!

    sprite zero, or fanta z? or 7up free?
    I always go for those but they're harder to come by
