Just from the faucet. It costs pennies and doesn't waste a bunch of packaging.

I bought my wife one of those fruit infusion water bottles from BB&B a week or two ago. Works really well and much better tasting than just plain water, IMO. One of these guys:



I can only drink plain water after I've gone running or had a really intense workout. Otherwise, I have to flavor it with something. My company has free packets of crystal light in the kitchens so I typically go with that along with water from the water cooler.

Lot's of people don't like the chlorine taste. A charcoal filter (brita) can take of that. I like it plain but a squirt of lemon juice can add just enough flavor.

I drink tap water. I drink a lot of water, so the tap is the way to go. It's much more cost effective.

I have like 5 or 6 of the liter and half bottles that I have bought from Publix. I just keep them and refill all of them and take one with me to work everyday. Make sure I drink at least that while I work and usually more at home.

Can't drink the tap water where I work. I buy a liter on my way in every day and add a couple squeezes of Dasani raspberry to it.

Be careful with those little squeeze bottles with the artificial flavors. I tried them a few months ago and started feeling weird a few days later. I had leg cramps and I felt odd. I randomly googled the Dasani bottle a few days later because I realized they didn't carry them at Earth Fare where I usually shop, and I was shocked to find all this stuff on the net about many people develop cramps and rashes after using them. It's not just that brand either. I stopped using them and my symptoms went away a few days later. If you want to flavor water, it's best to steep some fruit in a pitcher so you don't get fake chemically stuff.

I remembered after I posted last night that before the actually cramps started I had like a general feeling of tightness in my legs and joints. I initially thought I had pulled something when I was running. Like I said though, I never would have connected the dots if I didn't randomly google the product. There are complaints on the net about all of them. I think I tried Mio had the same issues.

Here's a link from livestrong.

Filtered tap water through the fridge...sometimes flavored with lemon or cucumber

Since I started detox diet, I have dropped all soda and flavored water due to artificial sweeteners for the time being and I haven't missed them one bit.

Relying solely on bottled water, or refilling your plastic bottles daily, is absolutely bad for your health,

I go with a water filter to refill my BPA-free Nalgene bottle. Why anyone would go any other route is beyond me. But, hey- it's your body...put whatever crap into it you want.

Default Re: Flavored or Regular Bottled Water?

Bottled water....one of the worst ideas to come around in a long time. Expensive and most importantly, it is terrible for the environment. One of a single biggest ways for an individual to leave a negative footprint on the world. Good old tap water was fine for us before and it still is. If you want a brita or some crap then go for it.
