Drink more water! Or so the health experts beckon us to do in order to look, feel and be great. But what if you just don’t like the taste of water? What if you need some sort of flavor in your water to make it more palatable? And what if you secretly desire your water do more than just quench your thirst?
Fortunately for the plain water naysayers, there is more than an ample selection of flavored beverages to choose from these days, from sports drinks to energy drinks and from juices to sodas. While these drinks may taste great, most of them are also loaded with sugar, which means, they contain calories, and a lot of them. The average bottle of soda or juice contains more than 200 calories. That’s a lot of empty calories to slug just to satiate a parched mouth. So if you’re looking for a way to drink more water and shave off some calories from your diet without feeling like you’re turning your drinking habits upside down, then you might want to check out the new line of calorie-free aqua-ceuticals, like Skinny Water.
Skinny Water is like a cross between Vitamin Water and a weight loss supplement. But unlike Vitamin Water, Skinny Water does not contain calories and unlike diet pills, they promise to not send you into a heart-palpitating, jittery mess.
Skinny Waters come in six different flavors like Goji Berry Fruit Punch and Lemonade Passionfruit. The beverages starts with a baseline formula of filtered water, calcium, potassium and green tea extact and then fruit extracts like pomegranate, mandarin and acai as well as herbs, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and a dash of Splenda round out each of the six different kinds.
From the XXX Detox, which can help alleviate the pain of a nasty hangover to the Crave Control, which promises to squash the need for an afternoon M & M fix, Skinny Waters are flavorful and may help to give your body just the boost it needs to get through the day.
The other four kinds of Skinny Waters are Shape, Wake-Up, Hi-Energy and Total-V. We review them all in DietInReview.com’s complete review of Skinny Water.
Rumor has it that Fergie totes Skinny Waters around with her as does actress Kristen Bell. But you don’t have to hightail it to Hollywood to get your hands on a few bottles. Target, Walgreens, Albertson’s, ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Acme Markets, Shaw’s Supermarket’s, Giant of Carlisle, Fry’s Food Stores and Wegman’s all carry them.
While Skinny Water provided Heather Ashare with sample product, this review is her own opinion and was not influenced or sponsored in any way.
