Carbonated water exists naturally, but it can also be created by dissolving carbon dioxide in still water. For my patients who don’t like water, I recommend simply adding some fresh fruit to enhance its flavor-lemon, lime, cucumber, or orange slices, or chunks of watermelon are all great-you can also try one of these fruit infused water recipes. I also recommend sparkling water or seltzer with no sodium, either plain or with fresh fruit or a splash. If you’re looking to quit your soda habit, sparkling water seems like a natural fit.

Sparkling water has skyrocketed in popularity over the last decade, with brands taking the water infused with pressurized CO2 to new heights with added flavor and creative packaging.

  • Love your ring! It’s gorgeous. I mix half a flavored sparkling water and water in a Starbucks cup and I love it! I noticed using a Starbucks cup, like the collectible ones, helps me drink a lot more water too

  • I’ve been wanting to try Thrive Market for so long and have seen so many people rave about it but they still don’t ship to Canada:(

  • Hi Jeanine I love your videos they always inspire and motivation me I hope you are staying safe love you Jeanine!��♥️edit:omg tysm for hearting my comment ��♥️

  • Good information to know, as I’ve been drinking plain unflavored carbonated water for years and nothing else. It’s like getting a treat every time I get thirsty. Sometimes I’ll add 100% pure lemon juice to it.

  • why does he have to drink water while he talks. wow this cd have been said in like 3 to 4 minutes. we know leucine is a BCAA, and the brain thinks you’re being fed, get on with it, we got it.

  • I just need help with anxiety, yes there’s problems in life but anxiety makes them unbearable. God has helped me sooo much with anxiety. Guys if you have anxiety, or if you don’t you should get into the word of God and pray he WILL help you!!

  • But he said SOME ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS, meaning that probably there are some safe options, I’d like to know what research says nowadays when comes to that!

  • Great video! I appreciate the intermittent diet that was indicated here on the channel. In almost 5 months I already lost 32 Kgs. Thanks to everyone! ��

  • Excellent,valid and informative video.
    More here from another expert,who introduced us to the 5:2
    all those years ago,

  • Corrina Damn you fine.

    Keep up the good work

  • New subscriber here. Found you because of a Joe Rogan mention. Thanks for posting. My weight loss definitely stops when I drink artificial sweeteners.

  • What exactly is Fopobiacne Secrets? How does this thing really work? I see a lot of people keep on talking about this popular natural acne remedy.

  • I understand you saying that you are making a healthier switch, but those smart sweets have almost 30g of fiber in one bag! Also halo top has more ingredients than normal ice cream. Yes these options have fewer calories, but that doesn’t always mean “better” or “healthier”. I suppose it is all relative to ones goals! These are great for those trying to lose weight. But those just trying to live a healthier lifestyle I think eating any and all foods they want in recommended portions are great options too!

  • Artificial sweeteners don’t increase insulin. The sugar companies started that rumour, to stop people from using artificial sweeteners so the sugar companies can sell more sugar. It started in the late 1980’s when the Coca Cola Company brought out Diet Coke and the sugar companies didn’t like that, they want everyone to drink normal Coke with sugar. And the rumour has spread for so long that now everyone thinks that artificial sweeteners increase insulin, even professional nutritionists think it does, I used to think it does as well but I’ve done a lot of research on sugar and you can lose weight from using artificial sweeteners. So there’s nothing wrong with using artificial sweeteners while you’re fasting. ��✌️

    The concentrate comes in 50 gallon barrels (usually from China) as a syrup reduction. It is then mixed with liquid iso sugar, ascorbic acid and the proper amount of water to create the correct sugar/solids ratio. The juice is next pasteurized and heated to 168° for 20 sec then cooled.
    I used to make juice for a large company ��

  • I’m addicted to Topo Chico!
    I think it’s taste the best because it comes in a glass bottle and I drank 12 oz at a time rather than 20 or 16….
    Always wondered how the carbonation affected bones and stuff like that…. I drink it and I never drink soda at to me it’s as good as soda or better

  • I’ve found that infusing your water with fruit has helped me consume more during the day. I’ve also been mixing Crystal Light with Topo Chico:)

  • In defense of Arizona its (or at least the kind i get) its real brew tea and most likely has the benefits you mentioned. The only “chemicals” in mine are citric acid which is commonly found in lemons and as boric acid (vitamin c). The only bad things are the sugar content and fructose corn but it is sweetened tea so thats a given its fine in moderation and is way healthier then sodas.

  • I’m scheduled to have gastric sleeve in October and in really worried about getting dehydrated. I found a company online called “banana bag”. They make like an anti-dehydration powder to mix in with water. I drink lots of water now, going to start the gallon a day. I was mainly just concerned about the 1st month post op. What do you think?

  • would highly recommend drinking regular water instead of sparkling water. sure it’s better than soda, but any carbonation is extremely dehydrating.

  • As someone who makes their own carbonated water with tap water and lite salt, it’s weird to hear you talk about carbonated water and acids as if that’s normal to plain carbonated water. Carbonated water implies water and co2, that’s it. There’s no acids, pH should be neutral.

  • Jeanine, thank you so much for this kind of video. This will help me out so much because I’ve been struggling with my weight and wanna learn how to portion control my food. And I need to get back into shape. If I wanna order something off of thrive market what do I do? It will be my very very first time doing so. ❤❤

  • Please give me a shout out on your next vid
    (It’s Janae Royan)
    I also have some suggestions for your next time:
    Your night time routine
    test out some tiktoks
    tips on being organized

  • Just want to say not all beet sugar is bad for you I live near a local beet sugar factory and they sell it at the markets in that town

  • So this video is actually downplaying the people who have gender dysphoria and decide to change their gender because of who they really are inside. Thats messed up. There is no trans without dysphoria.

  • Is there a watch you would recommend that is like the Apple Watch but way cheaper? ( I have tried the Fitbit so I am looking for other options)

  • This video helps a lot Jeanine! I’ve been struggling with healthy eating and this makes a lot of sense to me. Thanks Jeanine, and I love your videos

  • I’ve done intermittent fasting while sipping on diets drinks with 0 calories and have see no difference in results than just drinking water alone. And I can also enjoy yourself with a diets Soda here and there

  • I’m not sure when the Pregnant Women one was filmed but do you think the studies on how much plastic are in ALL fish would change their answer? and should we be concerned about that?

  • It’s great substitute if you like sodas I lost weight by drinking sparkling water and it’s all mental too I just like the bubbly affect

  • Seltzer is filtered tap water that is carbonated. Tap water has lots of minerals that vary by location and source, so I disagree. Seltzer has minerals. Club soda has added salt (sodium chloride) for taste as an alcoholic drink mixer that it was originally made for.

  • I don’t eat vegetables or salad I’m just fine never gonna eat them and if there’s nothing else to eat out there why get out of bed

  • S Pellegrino with Lime and Stevia. But I am worried about this acidic thing. Why we want to take anything acidic. Neutral water is better

  • hey i heard this dude was negative 500% bodyfat lololol… i get he is a phd but if he believes he is under 5% body fat then he should have it revoked

  • I had surgery about 10 days ago but I am really depressed. I don’t know why but really I miss eating and I can’t drink water that well I love cold water but I am stuck with room temperature and I don’t like it I know I sound like I am nagging but I really am feeling down sorry for the long depressing comment

  • The real question is which sparkling water tastes the best? Perrier? San Pellegrino? La Croix? We all know they’re not all the same.

  • So it’s not healthy because a scientist did it? And chemicals are bad because you dont personally recognize them? I wanted to hear actual negative processes that happen in the body

  • Are those lemon extract squeezers that you buy in the grocery store have the same benefits of freshly squeezed lemon juice? I sneak these into restaurants and squirt them into ice water. I’m hoping that this is a healthier choice compared to ordering Diet Coke. Please confirm. Thank you kindly.

  • What about a lemon slice, a few caps red cider vinegar, cinnamon and turmeric. All okay in fasting window or best to take in at meal time?

    Also vitamin d gummy, probiotic gummy, ginseng, fish oil gel cap, garlic gelcap?

    Pretty much been fasting with black coffee and green tea with above items and pills at mealtime. Looking to add creatine soon.

  • Yes I love these kind of videos!! Also, those jeans you had on when you were preparing a snack for on the go? KILLING IT!! Please do a clothing haul soon!

  • i have an unrecognised type of OCD which makes me walk till i all but can’t anymore and hobble home. being outside and moving reduces my life-long and professionally ignored permanent headache/dizziness.
    so i gained a habitual compulsion to get out and go at every opportunity which is causing severe muscle and joint issues due to excessive wear and tear, exacerbating my congenital and premature arthritis symptoms and is also filling my lungs with traffic dirt (leading to copd like i was smoking 80 a day for thirty years). Being on the move outside on foot or bicycle was once my greatest pleasure, and my only actual relief from the headaches, but now it’s a torture i can’t stop doing to myself, because i can’t cope with the headspins when i’m stationary for even a couple of hours. now i’m on welfare i’m going out every two-three hours for at least one hour and it’s causing me severe endless pain in my leg muscles, joints and foot arches, yet still relieving the headache while i’m moving
    doc’s response?
    . ”cool, walking’s good.”
    yeh -he’s one of them who has selective hearing, no concept of pain and a glazed-over, distracted look in his eye whenever you describe symptoms which your ”demographic” ”shouldn’t” have.

  • You know the ironic thing would be
    People who study sleep and are like doctors in sleep, aren’t getting enough sleep. That’s a bad example

  • I hope you learn me what do you eat healthy cuz I do not have no don’t I do not eat healthy and other stuff I’m just addicted of healthy stuff

  • Can you make a video about to start a good YouTube channel? I’ve been brainstorming for years but I’m too nervous to actually upload anything:(

  • Do natural popular acne remedy like Fopobiacne Secrets really work and if so, how effective are they? We have noticed numerous awesome things about this popular natural acne treatment.
