Ok, but I would prefer personally to drink natural lime juice with water over chemicals made in a factory. My water comes from a borehole (water tested) and has plenty of mineral content.

 

My drink is totally sustainable as I grow the limes. I don't really get your point on 'sustainability' in this context.

 

I totally agree with you on the sugary drinks and have quit them a while ago. The sugar-free alternatives are just as bad for you.

 

BTW your lemon & lime drinks contain sugar but you know that.

With sustainable means me keep doing it not it being available of from yourself. My problem is that your solution squeezing limes and stuff bores me after a while. It takes effort (yes I am lazy) and not as nice and easy as just opening a package and mixing.

 

So what would happen to me (not you your more disciplined in this) that I would get bored with the taste and the fact that I had to squeeze a lime every time (and buying them making sure I dont run out its easier to do with packages then limes.

 

Then I would revert back to my bad habit of drinking sugary drinks. So me doing this prevents me from doing something worse. Its not perfect but its an improvement on what it was and this I can keep up (sustainable). 

 

So i go for a less then perfect solution that beats the alternative. 

 

Having said that there is not much wrong with this, especially for someone like me who works out a lot and can use the extra calcium, potassium, and magnesium. I actually have to take tablets and drink these things so I don't cramp up during a workout. I sweat that much and workout that hard.

I drink 5-7 liters of bubble water a day.   I used to drink that much of other things, and believe this is a healthy choice.    I put a blast of apple cider vineagar and some stevia drops in it too.

I thought you said you were lazy? As an avid health-concious person, dedicated to working out I would have thought it anathema to then go and stuff yourself with chemicals rather than squeeze a lime. I mean, really, you are too lazy to squeeze a lime? Seriously? Squeezing the juice from a lime is much quicker than booting up your xomputer, going online, placing an order, putting in your payment details and receiving the item. You have a few issues I think.

Not really just an other interpretation of what is damaging for health then you. So far I have seen almost no bad reports about stevia. (that is the chemical used). I have looked into artificial flavoring there are is no compelling evidence its bad.

 

Lazy might not be the right word for it, just can't be bothered with squeezing a lime every time when I want a drink. I tried it before and i like this better taste wise.

 

But to each his or her own we all set priorities and find other stuff less important. The fear of Stevia ranks quite low.. lower then the chance that my limes might have been treated with pesticides making them worse then anything else. (i have to buy them I don't grow them).

 

I put plenty of work in the rest of my food, this just does not rank high on my list after having done my research. There is almost no stevia in this product as it does not need much sweetening. So far there is no conclusive evidence about it at all. Rat tests show danger human tests show no danger. 

 

The insulin spike is dose dependent and as I said quite low in this product.

Absolutely fair enough mate and I'm not criticising you at all, we are all free to make our own decisions in life. I'm just posting my opinion which differs from yours. I wish you well. Sorry about the 'issues' comment, retracted.

In all seriousness I would be more concerned about the pomelo than the club soda. Pomelo is of the same family as grapefruit and grapefruit can have some serious interactions with prescription medication,

 

The list of medications that can interact with grapefruit includes commonly prescribed medications that:

Fight infection

Reduce cholesterol

Treat high blood pressure

Treat heart problems

Prevent organ rejection

Treat anxiety

Control seizures

Minimize motion sickness

Treat erectile dysfunction

Replace hormones

Reduce cough

Control pain

No worries on the meds, matey.   I take none. Only fish oil and Vita C each day.  True, when randy i pop a 'dick pill', but never wash down with pomelo, or grapefruit juice.

And to clear up, the soda water i drink is not sugared.  I do like Tonic water but that has loads of white sugar so to be avoided, although the quinine may be good for me.
