So I like water, but I LOVE Lemon water...in fact the past 2 weeks I've gotten into making a pitcher of lemon water and keeping it in the fridge - literally just water + 1 full squeezed lemon + 1 sliced lemon...keep it in the fridge and drink it.

I've given up ALL caffeine (did this 5 months ago)...so NO pop, NO coffee (unless it's decaf) and I've even given up stuff like powerade zero - so I'm not drinking artifical sweeteners or colors. So basically I drink water, green smoothies, and almond/coconut milk...

but mainly water.

I know lemon water is supposed to help balance the acidity/alkaline in the body.

Does anyone know how good it is for / during IVF or FET cycles? anyone?

I would think it would help since in theory it's also to flush and for antioxidants.
This is the place we would have used for ivf and it lists lemon so...

Oh I drink decaf coffee with my protien powder and almond milk in the mornings.
Lately I have been drinking a ton just water and hate it but I am trying anything at this point.
I had been drinking decaf ice tea and lemonade (I use Lemon Water, Lemon Recipe, Lime Recipe, Orange Recipes for Diet because I am lazy) and stevia.

I drink water and the occasional lemonade. I can't drink anything with artificial sweeteners as I am highly sensitive to them and end up with a migraine most of the time.

Good for you for giving up pop! I don't know how it affects TTC but Im sure its wonderful because water is the best thing for ya!

Has anyone ever had La Croix? They have different flavors. Lemon is my fav and I also put a lemon slice in it sometimes. Its just carbonated water (no sugar, carbs calories). The first few times I drank them I didn't like them, but now I LOVE them. Its just nice having something to drink sometimes besides water.

I gave up regular pop probably 12+ years ago...and *somehwat* gave up diet pop about 5-6 years ago (although I started re-drinking diet pop again last year...but completely gave it up again back in October).

My problem though is stuff like the powerade and gatorade zeros. I do NOT drink ANYTHING what.so.ever with high fructose corn syrup - and haven't for years (which is complete poison) but the "diet" ones I drink - although I believe those to be bad too because of the artifical colors and sweeteners...

Give it a few tries luc, it might take a couple times like me. If you like lemons I suggest adding some to the lemon flavored one. My DH loves them now too

I gave up soda a couple months ago and honestly, don't really miss it. I have cut down my coffee intake to one or two cups a day. I still don't drink a lot of water. I can't stand the taste of it. I have increased juice and smoothie intake instead. I've tried cucumber sliced in water which is pretty good, I will have to try the lemon.

If you like Coconut flavor... you have to try and find the Lacroix in Cocnut.... it is AMAZING!
