I don't like the taste of water.

I know I should drink it, many glasses of it, but I dislike the taste of water. I used to live in NYC, where the water tastes great, but I moved to D.C and I can't stand the taste of it. I can't describe how awful it is. I guess I should drink bottled water but there are so many brands and I don't know which is worth it. Suggestions?

Brita Water pitcher. You always have cold good-tasting water. I change the filter religiously.

Bottled water

As a former New Yorker I can relate. I use a Brita when I am home and keep a bottle by my side where ever I go. Have you tried adding a little lemon? It does take that edge off.

beware of drinking only bottled water - my dentist says it can ruin your teeth; I think because it doesn't have fluoride.

Another thing you can add are crystal light or tea "on the go" flavors. They are individualy packaged for 8 oz. bottles of water. And only 5 cal. I use only 1/2 of one to add just a touch of flavor.They are in with the powdered juices in your grocery isle. I love them.

I've added a few drops of fruit juice, like fruit punch in mine. I also use the Brita filter pitcher.

I also second the Crystal light "on the go" packets. They are a little strong IMO, but it works great to fill an oversized bottle with 1/2 water, 1/2 ice and one packet - lasts an entire morning and it tastes awesome when you're hot 'n sweaty but don't want something as sweet as Gatorade.....

Each day, I fill a big nalgene bottle(32 oz) with water, half a lemon and a little splenda. I start out with a lightly sweetened lemonade and then I continue to refill the bottle through out the day. The lemon makes the water easier to drink.

dasani. I don't think distilled water is your best bet, and there's numerous studies showing flouride is bad for you. But if you can drink green tea instead of plain water, you'd be doing your body great.

Just try a few brands of water or get a filter. Yes, the tap water in DC is awful. With a filter, you will still get the flouride, and I know some people think that is fine and some are set against it.

Propel is great! It comes in different flavors and sizes. I like the ones with the sport top so I don't have to twist off a cap and then worry about dropping it on the treadmill. Propel has extra vitamins and stuff that an active body needs. I did not know that plain water without fluoride would rot your teeth. Seems silly to me since none of the water on earth comes with fluoride. I think all that chlorine is not good for you. Who wants to drink bleach?

Unsweetened ice tea is what I drink sometimes. I drink 8 glasses of water a day but sometimes I get sick of drinking it so I drink ice tea instead. Also I recomend a brita water filter if your water tastes awful.

Brita Filter Caution

Brita filters remove almost alll flouride in the water!! They do make bottled waters now (ex: Nestle water) that has flouride in it. Adding Flouride into the public drinking supply in the 40's has been stated as being the largest ever single advance and contribution to public heath, according to the ADA.

AND you're paying to have it taken out!!

Brita filters are always really good. I personally like Dasani water. It took alot of trial and error to find the water I like the best. Just buy single 16 oz bottles of a few and start figuring out what you favorite is.

The water in my municipality tastes icky though and there's floating white particles in it that I can't get over. Thus the Brita water pitcher. My dentist, knowing that most people around here do use some filtration system, said if I use one to use a flouride rinse in the evening before bed.

It's good to be aware of though and I wouldn't have thought of it if someone hadn't told me.

personally, I've never had a problem drinking water. I love it. A friend of mine used to say that he didn't like to drink water... the taste, and he felt like he was drowning! YIKES.
he used to drink way too much pop, and I was always harping after him to drink more water... well, when we went out to eat, he would always get a glass of water, with lemon, and his stand by pop. He's squeeze lemon into the water, and add a pkt of sugar. I hated the idea of adding the sugar, but that's what he needed to do. it got to be rather funny... servers would offer to refil his water glass,, and he would refuse, saying he had just the right balance going on. LOL
the we found those "SMART" water... water with a bit fruit juice added,... he actually like those. LOL

Fiji

Fiji water is good. It is such a nice surprise. It's PH balance is not 7. It is just a tiny bit on the base side, which gives it this "thick" feeling as you drink. A nice twist on water.

Propel, it comes in different flavors and has vitamins your body can use. Plus now they have Propel with calcium. Propel helps with the nasty taste factor of water. plus they have twist off caps which make it earsier to drink while working out!

I prefer Arrowhead water when I'm not active and Propel for when I'm playing sports. I don't care for Dasani or Dannon water. During the summer, I will go through lots of lemon for my water. And I love the Crystal Light packages. I recently discovered that Nestle is adding flavor to their water. I picked up two 6-packs of their lemon water and it taste like the Crystal Light. Really good stuff.

Fulfill

There's this stuff called Fulfill. It's like Propel but cheaper and has no sugar added and 0 calories. It comes in three or four flavors with packets that will flavor 16.5 oz (a water bottle) It also has added vitamins and minerals to get you through your workouts. I drink it all the time. It makes my water taste like juice and it gives me extra energy! BTW, Fulfill is sold at Walmart.

I second Fulfill

I just found Fulfill on Friday. We were buying bottled waters, but this saves us buying extra bottles that need to be thrown away or recycled, plus, a $3 box will make about 10, 16 oz bottles of clear, flavored water.

Much cheaper than buying the bottled stuff.

A fellow New Yorker

I lived in NY and love the taste of that water so much that when I go to visit my family, I take empty gallon jugs and fill them and take them home to MD. When I can't do that, I drink Smart Water. It tastes really great and contains electrolytes so it replenishes like gatorade without the extra calories.

I do have to say that Nestle has the worst tasting water every--When I had it, I thought it tasted like dirt.

Usually, I go with Dasani or Aquafina... on the other hand, I am lucky. in the Detroit area, the water actually came up higher than the bottled when they did blind taste tests.

I like the Nestle. What I've been doing lately though is buying a four pack of the 24oz Dasani bottles and adding those little flavor packets(I like the Great Value ones from Walmart) that everyone mentioned. In a bigger bottle, they're not as strong, which I like. I just keep the empty bottles and refill them with normal tap water(or you could use filtered of course) because it saves money and creates less plastic bottle waste. On the subject of the water taste in different areas, I live somewhere rural for school, and it's a normal municipal supply, not well water, but it's soft. When I go home to Pittsburgh, I can really taste the chlorine at first. My favorite water supply that I've tasted was the one in Philly. I ended up filling an empty gallon jug to bring back with me and rationed it to keep it for awhile.

I too will say the Crystal Light individual packets. I don't particularly like the Crystal Light that you make up in a big container, but the individual packets taste better to me. So far I've tried the wild strawberry (which was very good) and the pomegranate cherry. I'm going to stop at the store tomorrow and buy some more. I don't hate water, but if it doesn't have flavor, I end up not drinking enough during the day.

Brita Filter

Get a Brita filter pitcher and fill it AFER you run the water for a minute (rinsing veggies or scrubbing out something so you don't waste) and fill the pitcher. Put it in the fridge and it will taste good. Serve it at meals.

I keep Nalgene bottles and refill them to avoid plastic waste. With bottled water, do you REALLY know what you are getting.?....lots of marketing, plastic residues and waste products, and an empty wallet.

Ultima makes a nice tasting powdered sports drink..just add to your water. It has no sugar and you don't have a ton of waste plastic. I get it at Whole Foods. Package is pricey but it lasts forever.

Mint Water

I definately agree with everyone else that a Brita filter is a must. I can't even tolerate drinking water straight from the tap anymore. I also don't like all the fake tasting flavored waters out there. It just tastes like chemicals to me. A good alternative is MintWater. It's 0 calories and no added sweetners: just water and mint. It is kind of on the expensive side though so an alternative is to fill a pitcher of water (Brita filtered of course) and adding a couple sprigs of fresh mint to it. It's amazingly refreshing. You can also add fresh mint to iced tea and lemonade with terrific results. :)

Herbal tea! I have an entire shelf on my cupboard with different kinds and I drink those all day instead. It's the same as lemon water without the acid which can ruin your teeth. Also, it's easier to drink as the weather gets colder.

Flouride in Our Drinking Water
EPA standards too low for good health
by the EPA
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's standard for the maximum amount of fluoride allowed in drinking water -- 4 milligrams of fluoride per liter of water -- does not protect against adverse health effects, says a new report from the National Academies' National Research Council. According to the most recent data, just over 200,000 Americans have drinking water sources containing fluoride levels at 4 mg/L or higher. The committee that wrote the report concluded that children exposed to the current maximum allowable concentration risk developing severe tooth enamel fluorosis, a condition characterized by discoloration, enamel loss, and pitting of the teeth. A majority of the committee also concluded that people who consume water containing that much fluoride over a lifetime are likely at increased risk for bone fractures.

The report does not examine the health risks or benefits of the artificially fluoridated water that millions of Americans drink, which contains 0.7 to 1.2 mg/L of fluoride. Although many municipalities add fluoride to drinking water for dental health purposes, certain communities' water supplies or individual wells contain higher amounts of naturally occurring fluoride; industrial pollution can also contribute to fluoride levels in water. Because high amounts of fluoride can be toxic, EPA places a cap, or maximum contaminant level, on fluoride concentrations in drinking water in order to prevent adverse health effects.

Although the agency's current maximum contaminant level for fluoride in drinking water is 4 mg/L, a so-called secondary level of 2 mg/L was set by EPA to protect against cosmetic dental effects linked to excess fluoride consumption. According to the most recent data, about 1.4 million people have water with 2 mg/L of fluoride.

In 1993 the Research Council reviewed EPA's maximum contaminant level for fluoride and found it to be an appropriate interim standard until further research was completed. Now that several more studies have been done and because the Safe Drinking Water Act requires periodic reassessment of regulations, EPA asked for a new review.

Most exposure to fluoride in the United States results from consumption of water and water-based beverages, but dental products, food, and other sources contribute as well. Highly exposed subpopulations include individuals who have high concentrations of fluoride in their drinking water or who drink more water than the average person because of exercise, outdoor work, or a medical condition. Relative to their body weight, infants and young children are exposed to three to four times as much fluoride as adults. Children also may use more toothpaste than is advised or swallow it, and many receive fluoride treatments from their dentists. Fluoride accumulates in bone over time, so groups likely to have increased bone fluoride concentrations include the elderly and people with severe renal deficiency who have trouble excreting fluoride in their urine.

When assessing the risk for adverse health effects in populations with water fluoride concentrations near the level of the EPA standards, the committee assumed these populations had the same exposure to other sources of fluoride as populations with smaller amounts of fluoride in their water.

On average, approximately 10 percent of children in communities with water fluoride concentrations at or near 4 mg/L develop severe tooth enamel fluorosis, the new report says. Previous assessments have considered all cases of enamel fluorosis, including serious ones, to be aesthetically displeasing because of the yellow and brown staining of teeth that occurs, but not adverse to health. However, the committee said that severe cases of enamel loss constitute an adverse health effect because one function of enamel is to protect the teeth and underlying dental tissue from decay and infection. "The damage to teeth caused by severe enamel fluorosis is a toxic effect that is consistent with prevailing risk assessment definitions of adverse health effects," the committee reported. Two of the 12 committee members did not agree that enamel defects alone are sufficient to consider severe enamel fluorosis an adverse health effect as opposed to a cosmetic one, but they did agree that EPA's maximum contaminant level goal should be lowered to prevent the occurrence of this unwanted condition.

Earlier studies indicate that up to 15 percent of children in communities with 2 mg of fluoride per liter of water have moderate tooth enamel fluorosis. Although this condition can also lead to tooth discoloration that may be aesthetically objectionable, there is inadequate data to categorize it as an adverse health effect.

Several studies indicate an increased risk of bone fracture in populations exposed to fluoride concentrations in water of 4 mg/L or higher, the committee added. Although fluoride increases bone density as it accumulates in bone, there is evidence that under certain conditions it can weaken bone and increase the risk of fractures. Most of the committee concluded that a population with lifetime exposure to fluoride in water at concentrations of 4 mg/L or higher is likely to experience more fractures than a group exposed to 1 mg/L. Three of the 12 committee members, however, only supported a conclusion that EPA's 4 mg/L limit might not be protective against bone fractures; they said more evidence was needed before drawing a conclusion that increased risk of fracture is likely. There was insufficient data for the committee to reach any conclusions about fracture risk at the 2 mg/L level.

The report also looks at the risk of skeletal fluorosis, a bone and joint condition associated with prolonged exposure to high concentrations of fluoride. The most severe stage of skeletal fluorosis appears to be rare in the United States, the committee noted. It also said that it could not determine if earlier stages of the disease are occurring in U.S. residents who drink water with fluoride at the 4 mg/L level, and that more research is needed in this area.

The evidence to date regarding fluoride's potential to cause cancer, particularly of the bone, is tentative and mixed, the committee added. A study under way at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, expected to be published this summer, may help identify future research that would be useful for studying fluoride's carcinogenic potential.

The committee's study was sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The National Research Council is the principal operating arm of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering. It is a private, nonprofit institution that provides science and technology advice under a congressional charter.

YOU AMERICANS ARE WASTEFUL CONSUMERS

Is there any one out there who actually realizes what a wasteful thing bottled water is. You all are going on about BRANDS BRANDS BRANDS...make a plan with the water from your tap... PLEASE!!!!!

we have tried to calculate the true cost of producing and transporting bottled water before, and have come up with just vague approximations, which did not take the production of the bottle into account. Over at Triple Pundit, Sustainability Engineer and MBA Pablo Päster has done a thorough and exhaustive study of the cost of bring a litre of Fiji Water to America. He starts with the production of the bottle in CHINA, taking the bottle blanks to FIJI, and confirming that IT TAKES MORE WATER TO MAKE THE BOTTLE, THAN IT ACTUALLY HOLDS. He then transports the bottle to the STATES by ship. Not even including the distribution in the States, the numbers are absolutely staggering.

In summary, the manufacture and transport of that ONE kilogram bottle of FIJI WATER consumed 26.88 KILOGRAMS of water (7.1 GALLONS) .849 Kilograms of fossil fuel (one litre or .26 gal) and emitted 562 grams of Greenhouse Gases (1.2 pounds).

UPDATE: Due to the incredible response to this post, Pablo obtained more information and has recalculated, and it is not as bad as previously stated but still staggeringly bad, 6.74 times as much water as is in the bottle.

Taste test results

My boyfriend and I did a blind bottled water taste test to determine which we liked best. Beforehand we though Voss was THE best tasting water-absolutely crisp and literally no taste compared to other waters.

The results varied between the two of us, and whether the water was chilled or room temp.

Bottom line, the top waters were Aquafina, Poland Spring, and Balance for Women. We still drink Voss on occasion out of loyalty.

Errr no

Floride is toxic chemical that should not be included in drinking water. If you are paranoid about getting the "right" amount of floride to prevent cavities look at your tube of toothpaste, you'll get all the floride you need. I think you should do a little research on the effects of floride.

To the OP, I would say drink Smart Water, which is the cleanest, best tasting water out in the market bar none.

This thread is nearly 5 years old. Just saying.

Regarding fluoride, if it was that deadly as one poster believes, it wouldn't be allowed in toothpaste after all these years.

I have learned over the years that you can find a "study" to back up any argument you want backed up. Doesn't mean it's right or the results are perfect; as a matter of fact, generally the results are what the researcher wanted and not what is necessarily true.

It's a fact that fluoride is toxic to the body when ingested. It is beneficial when applied to teeth and then rinsed off. It should not be consumed. You can read your tube of tooth paste if you're in doubt.

As I stated, you can find any study to back up anything you want to. Fluoride has been added to water for an extremely long time. Oh, and it is NOT the primary ingredient in rat poison either.
