Sparkling or Still

Ask a Question

Whatโ€™s your favourite water? I never understood sparkling but it is a preference for some.

Iโ€™m more of a still type of girl ๐Ÿ˜‚

All depends tbh.

Most of the day I'll drink still, but I do like a bottle of sparkling every so often, especially the morning after if I've had a bit too much wine the night before ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sparkling with a dash of apple or orange squash and you've got instant Tango or Fanta ๐Ÿ™‚

Sparkling is nice with a touch of fruit, but not on its own.

Still is nice with a touch of fruit as well as on its own. So my vote goes to still.

RegularComper90 I quite like these ....

https://uglydrinks.co.uk/

It's sparkling water with natural fruit flavours and basically zero calories. They are very subtle and very refreshing.

There's no way that I'd pay full price for them though. I bought a pile in using a 40% off code.

I drink tap water at home, so till gets my vote. I don't like sparkling on it's own, but add some squash and it is nice.

Lynibis Very interesting reading.

I drink a can or two of full fat pop a day and some Ugly drinks.

I've got weigh day on Saturday and I'm hoping to reach my goal of losing close to 2 stone since the original lockdown โ˜บ๏ธ

TheChimp well good luck, hope you make it. I too am trying as sugar levels are up. Have had D2 for a few years but have managed it myself without drugs so far, struggling with no sugar again but have managed to lose 7lbs in last 3 weeks.

Lynibis I'm sure I'm heading for D2 with the amount of sugar I consume, but I've done it since I was very young, so quite a long time. I can't drink anything with artificial sweeteners in it, so I'm a bit stuck (along with a large cost of buying the full sugar stuff like Dalstons and Fentimans).

And don't get me started on Haribo ๐Ÿ˜

Congratulations on your weight loss, 7lb in 3 weeks is quite impressive ๐Ÿ‘

TheChimp Please don't think I am interfering, I am saying this from someone who does not want to see another person get Diabetes 1 or 2. My nurse made it plain to me that D2 is as much of a killer as D1 on my first Diabetes check. My life is now a round of 6 monthly checks, blood tests, eye tests and I have the start of retinopathy, and my feet tingle nearly all the time. The podiatrist told me nerves do not heal, it is progressive and started on about amputations etc.

Please please please reduce your sugar intake now.

I have gone from 2 to 0 sugar in tea. I try very hard to not eat biscuits, cakes, sweets or puddings but fail occasionally. I prefer to have carbs with my dinner (they turn to sugar inside you) like rice, pasta and potatoes, then I feel as if I have had a decent meal.

What makes it harder to bear is that a friend has D2 and she eats all day long, quite a piggy really. She eats chocolate, crisps, biscuits and has squash that is 1 part squash and 2 parts water!

She is on Metformin and her last sugar level check she was 55 and mine without the drugs is 54. You can imagine how sick that makes me as she doesn't even try.

I told the Dr I would take the drugs if and when he says to but i know that if I do it will psychologically do me in as my mind will tell me I can eat what I like now as the drugs will keep me well, but that isn't the case and I would sooner use willpower and be drug free.

To anyone reading this who, like me, was a sugar/choc/treat addict, stop and think seriously about this as it is a fast growing disease and LIFE/LIMB THREATENING.

I used to eat several bars of choc a day, sugar in drinks, plus desserts etc but your pancreas can and does wear out. It is not repairable and don't wait for a cure......it ain't gonna happen.

I hope that maybe just one person will see this and decide a bit of sugar is not worth the cost of your life.......please cut down now, I wish I had done so sooner but it was not widely known about when I was pigging out on goodies, young and slim!

I used to hate sparkling, but for whatever reason, one day I drank sparkling by mistake and now itโ€™s my favourite. Iโ€™d pay for a bottle of sparkling, but not still as Iโ€™d happily drink from the tap
