i pretty much only drink water and fruit juices. started that up about four months ago and have never felt healthier. it's definitely The Way To Go, even if you have to force yourself to drink the water. and rather replace the gatorade and fizzy drinks with fruit juices (100% fruit). your body will thank you for it. i've also pretty much given alcohol. i'll have a glass of wine or something when i go out, but i'll generally just have water or, once again, fruit juice. if i get sick of the taste of water i add about a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice. or if i want something sweet i'll make my own lemonade- 2 litres of water, juice of three lemons and just enough sugar so it isn't bitter any more. lemon in water is actually really, really healthy- it reduces the acidity in your body. i know it sounds weird, but it works.
