Do you have a soda addiction that you need to suppress? In the past, I have been a huge Diet Mountain Dew fan. Every morning around 5:30 a.m., I would grab a can from the fridge as soon as I woke up. If I didn’t have my Diet Mountain Dew before 1 p.m., I would get a very bad headache. I have been told over and over by the girls at the gym, that I could shed a few more pounds if I could cut back on the amount of Diet Mountain Dews that I was drinking. This sounded easy for them to say, but I didn’t want to battle the headaches and basically I enjoyed drinking them. At least I was drinking the diet version and not the full strength Mountain Dews. It could be worse, right?
I learned about Spark Energy drinks and was given the challenge of using them to beat my Diet Mountain Dew addiction. As a product reviewer, you know I couldn’t pass this opportunity by. I was told to drink a Spark drink as soon as I woke up and another one around 2 to 3 pm when my Diet Mountain Dew craving set in. I really didn’t see this working since I “needed” my Diet Mountain Dew, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try. Guess what, it worked! I couldn’t believe that this great tasting flavored drink could stop my Diet Mountain Dew cravings. It couldn’t take away the thoughts of enjoying one, but it took away any thoughts that I had about “needing” one.
Spark comes in individual packets or in a tub with a scoop inside. Just add it to your water bottle, shake it up and drink this vitamin and amino acid supplement. It comes in the following flavors: Pink lemonade, Watermelon, Mango Strawberry, Mandarin Orange, Grape, Fruit Punch, Citrus and Cherry. The Fruit Punch is a safe flavor to start out with. It tastes just like regular koolaid Fruit Punch. My husband loves this one, and he can be very particular sometimes…LOL
I slowly worked myself back to drinking one Diet Mountain Dew a day and now drink one as a treat if I am in the mood for one. Drinking Spark twice a day has been a great move for me. The Diet Mountain Dews always tasted good, but the Spark drinks are full of vitamins and are much better for me. I also needed to increase the amount of water that I was drinking, but since I always chose Diet Mountain Dew as my drink of choice, that never happened. Now that I have that under control, I mix up flavored waters for the remainder of my daily drinks.
Do you need to add more water into your family’s day as well? Mixing flavored waters and placing them in the fridge will make it much easier for your family to grab one and go. My 13 year old son looks forward to his Tropical Punch and Blue Raspberry drinks now and I can’t seem to keep enough of them in the fridge for him. I am so glad to hear him asking for more flavored water rather than hearing about running low on his favorite sodas.
