Hey folks, i am having an issue with finding something to drink besides water. I drink a lot of water and get sick of it at times. The catch to my situation is that i can't find something that does not have artificial sweeteners. Pretty much any of them i find have a aftertaste that i do not like and upset my stomach. I have tried multiple things. Looking for some help thank you.

If you are not adverse to stevia, you may want to try SweetLeaf water drops.

I also enjoy Safeway's Refreshe flavored seltzers - don't expect the syrupy potent flavor you would from a soda in these cans, but it gives a little flavor and the cabonation provides a nice change from time to time (and it does not contain any artificial sweeteners, as far as I'm aware).

My favorite that I drink all the time is Zero Clear American found a Walmart. Comes in many flavors that taste like the real thing and it's sparkling as well. Highly recommend you try it. I drink it every day.

Look at the LaCroix drinks there are different flavors but no calories, no fats, no sodium, no carbohydrate, no Sugars and no protein. They do take some getting used to but my wife even likes them. Lime, Grapefruit, lemon, orange , peach, cranberry and berry flavored carbonated water no sweeteners.
What ingredients make up the ‘Natural Flavors’ in the LaCroix flavors?

The flavors are derived from the natural essence oils extracted from the named fruit used in each of our LaCroix flavors. There are no sugars or artificial ingredients contained in, nor added to, these extracted flavors.

I just squeeze lemon into my plain water. You might even try a tiny drop of pure vanilla extract to give it that sweet taste. Or a bit if Grenadine syrup (just a little, though, it's sugary!)

if you like carbonated water, you can buy a machine which will take your tap water and carbonate it.

Take a small bottle of gatorade and add it to a gallon of water—it's my fave in summer. I can't do artificial sweeteners either—and my aunt also suggested some flavor tricks from her major diet days, like the flavorings you find in the seasoning area—real flavors, though, not artificial. You can use tiny amounts of various fruit juices to minimize sugar but get the flavor.

I like LeCroix flavored waters. They are not sweet, kind of like a tonic, but there are a lot of flavors to choose from. I like grapefruit, lime and orange.

I just bought something at Target yesterday (recommended by a friend). It is the "Simply Balanced" brand and it is "Ginger Peach", although they also have lime, orange, etc. It has a hint of the flavor with no sweetener. It has a pleasant fizz, but a little too much for me. I like to add a little water with it. I tried a squirt of regular ginger ale with it, too, and it was especially tasty. Not something I'd want to drink all the time, but a nice change.
