I agree, but why not just go back to regular bottled water? At the Wal-Mart they sell sugar-free Kool-Aid/Crystal Light type packets which are sized for a bottle of water (about 15 packets for two fiddy). I cut down on my soda intake by 50% using these. No, they're not as invigorating as a Dew or a diet Pepsi, but they hydrate you a lot better. They even have the type with electrolytes (it's what the body needs) and vitamins (pronounced 'vitt-a-mins' not 'vye-tuh-mins') to make you feel like you're being even more healthier.Carbonated water is the BOMB. You can even get it flavoured. No sugar, no sodium. And you get that fizzy fix. You should try it out.
