First, you have to be very cafeful which SoBe drink you choose! I have twice gotten the wrong ones and not all are Belly Fat Cure approved. SoBe Lifewater with PureVia is the one you CAN have. It has a white band around the top and says "0 Calories". It is made by Pepsi and says it is sweetened naturally. Looking at the label it is a S/C of 0/1 per serving and there are 2.5 servings per bottle. But even if you had the whole bottle it is still a 0/1!
The first time I tried it the drink was not cold and it just tasted like very watered down Kool-aide. I was just starting the diet and eliminating sugars and was used to a super sweet tastes. I bought one of each flavor, even flavors I didn't really think I would like and put it away in the refrigerator.
Since then, I grab one if I'll be in the car for long periods and haven't had lunch yet. They take up one of my precious Carb Servings so I don't want to waste those! I have grown to really like these drinks as a special snack! The longer I do the Belly Fat Cure the less sweetener I need to make things taste sweet. (Have you all noticed that too?)
I am not having these with meals or drinking them like water or Gatorade. I usually have half a bottle and save the rest for another day or time. My favorite flavor so far is the Black and Blueberry. Other flavors in the 0 Calorie line include: Yumberry Pomegranate, Fuji Apple Pear, Mango Melon, Acai Fruitpunch.
I don't taste anything artificial or chemical in it. Just a light sweetness. I found my SoBe Lifewater at Target and they were 10 for $10 on sale. Usually they are more like $1.29. They are also available at Amazon and Costco has them in a large pack with three flavors.
I am giving SoBe Lifewater 0 Calories 5 out of 5 stars! A nice sweet treat when you really need it, available nationwide and fairly low cost.
