2. Bottled Flavored Water 


Although water sounds like it’s healthy, and many flavored waters make claims that they contain vitamins but it’s what they don’t tell you that can harm you. Flavored bottled water either use sugar or worse, artificial sweeteners as part of their flavoring.

Always be sure to read the label and see if your water contains sugars, artificial colors, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners. Rather than consume all those unwanted things, add a little fresh squeezed juice in some purified water instead.

    I would hate to go places with these person!
    They think that because it might be unhealthy you should never eat it or in the case drink them.
    News flash no one cares ,stop trying to force you no sugar no taste opinion on everyone!

    “500 calories – nearly half a days worth of calories in one drink” umm..what? Please stop starving yourself 1000 calories a day isn’t a diet it’s a death wish. 2000 is average depending on a few factors but for an adult it should go under that really. And for the record you’re calling out a 32 ounce (4 cup) drink as having that much WITH whipped cream – skip the cream, cut it in half to a regular sized drink and its no worse than the average candy bar. Also don’t say to never drink these – it’s just not realistic. we know they are unhealthy so we drink in moderation. never go on a diet you can’t live your whole life with – about the best advice I can give you.

      anything with flavor- to be avoided.
