For E-- BFC cranberry option
Drinks can be a challenge on the BFC because those sweetened with aspartame aren't "good." So usually I find myself grabbing a water if I'm out shopping and need a drink because hardly any diet drinks are belly fat good. I like Target because they have Vitamin Water Zero (sweetened with stevia) in their coolers as a more flavorful option. My favorite is the orange flavored one because it has less aftertaste than the other flavors I've tried. Recently I found Fuze and I thought of E... plus it was really yummy. It has one gram of sugar per serving (and a bottle is more than one serving) but this is the first fruit juice that is even close to fitting into the BFC program.
Typically I drink coffee with half and half-- 1 g of sugar but I figure the caffeine is burning that sugar up without my having to necessarily count it. I drink water. I drink unsweetened teas. Occasionally I'll get a Vitamin Water Zero but it has a funny feel-- kind of slick feeling. I hadn't had any diet sodas until I recently found Zevia at Kroger. I got the cola first. It's OK. I then got Lemon Lime and Rootbeer Ginger. The Lemon Lime is not very good in my opinion... I'd rather have La Croix soda water flavored with lime or lemon. I really like the Rootbeer Ginger. It's not too sweet and has a bit of bite like ginger ale.
I do tend to follow the BFC pretty closely but there are exceptions. I will drink an occasional beer and I don't care how many carbs there are-- I would rather have a real beer or no beer than a light beer. If I'm going to have the extra calories/carbs I would rather go for one taste.
