    Is flavored water allowed?

    Primal Fuel
    Hey....
    I was just wondering if it's ok to use water flavoring packets in my water? I love water, but sometimes I get tired of just plain water

    "Allowed"... Ughh. You're making it seem like MDA is your mother. Eat whatever the heck you want, there's no gun to your head. Eat junk food, go all out.

    The changes YOU make in your life are proportional to YOUR own motivation. If you want to add some artificial flavor/sugar packets into your clean water then so be it. It's clearly not primal though.

    What Bosnic said. But really, if you start just drinking water without any additives you'll learn that there's nothing like a glass of cold water with anything..I don't crave any other drinks anymore, and I've been Primal for something like 6 weeks.

    Exactly.

    OP, instead of seeking permission, why don't you figure out what's in those flavour packets and then decide if it's something you want in your body?
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    Those packets are full of chemicals aka artificial sweetners..Do you want a nice cup of chemicals? I didn't think so..Try some lemon or lime squeezed into your water instead.

    Or leave some herbs steeping in the water - mint or rosemary water is lovely.

    Try flavoring it yourself, as someone already mentioned, lemon or lime work well...I always do lemon with a pinch of sea salt or a little stevia if you want lemonade. You could also mash a few frozen berries in it if you want a fruity flavor. The packets may be convenient, but they aren't worth it!
