Drink plenty of fluids
When you are on a diet, everyone tells you that you should drink plenty of water. I am one of those people that hates the taste of water. Even the bottled water has a nasty taste to me. The only water I have ever liked was ice cold spring water that was coming straight up out of the ground when we use to go camping when I was a kid.
Most of my family knows that I don't like the taste of water so when I got a gift of 2 personalized water bottles last Christmas from a cousin, my family just shook their heads. They knew that those bottles would end up in the kitchen cupboard forever.
I talked about my dislike for the taste of water to a nurse and she told me that she hates the taste of water too and all she drinks all day is diet soda. She said the body does not care what form the fluid comes in, just as long as there is plenty of it and that the body can use it.
