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.....

I squeeze a lemon into it.. It tastes great and I get Vitamin C as a by-product ;)

Crystal light is disgusting! It's like I'm drinking 8 oz of chemicals. Not for me. But I like the fruit juice, lemon idea. Very cool. Thanks!
