I am newly diabetic and I don't drink soda. What can I drink besides water?
I have been told that fruit juice like orange and apple juice is not an option because of its effects on my sugar. I have found that diet soda has a really bad after effect on me so I steer clear of that as well. Any suggestions would be helpful.
crystal light, sugar free koolaide, there are a bunch of products that are "light", such as minute maid which makes light lemonade and limeaide..tea, coffee, there are many diet or light offered drinks, you just have to look for them.
I am borderline diabetic, and I try and steer clear of all of the artificial sweetner crap. I drink a LOT of ice tea, unsweetened with fresh lemon or lime in it and a lot of ice..really good and you can find many different flavors. Best wishes.
Well water is good for you so you should drink more water then anything else but there are lots of options out there. You can drink Crystal Light or an diet Ice Tea. There are a couple good low sugar juices, they have anywhere from 5-10 carbs per serving but much better then regular juices(Ocean SPray makes a couple). I actually drink a lot of the flavored waters because I am not much or a plain water fan. There are a lot of low carb drinks available now on the market, I would just look at the grocery store for things you like.
Tea, all types, but NO sugar . Skimmed milk is okay in black tea though.
Coffee is okay if no more than one cup a day, no sugar.
Diet soft drinks are no go for you as you say, but if you find some that you can tolerate make them a treat, not a daily thing.
Water can be lightly flavoured by kepping it in the refrigerator with a lemon/lime/orange wedge in it. That wll not add significant sugar to the water.
AVOID fruit juices: most are sugared water really.
Avoid milk in large quantities: it is high kilojoule, quite high fat and high GI.
Minute Maid makes a awesome sugar free lemonade. Make sure you drink it cold though.
Water is the best for you.
You can also make juice at home and have it. Specially with green vegetables, kale etc, add some fruits for taste.
The Juices you get outside are harmful, as they contain a lot of things like high glucose fruit syrup other than the pure juice.
Any diet sodas are 0 carbs, look for flavored waters with 0 carbs, unsweetened teas are 0 carbs
Water, unfortunately, is the best liquid to drink. You will grow used to the taste. Maybe you need to buy better water. What about carbonated mineral water? Tea or coffee? You could add flavor packets to water (just make sure they are safe for diabetics).
Crystal Light is wonderful, also FUZE is good....unsweet tea

If I were you, I would stick with water. Its the best thing for you and you'll lose some weight just drinking that.
Fruit juice and regular soda are key for hypoglycemia treatment, which you have surely learned. So don't remove them all from the house. Keep a couple cans in the back of the fridge.
Crystal Light makes a huge variety of drinks. We also drink sugar free lemonade, caffeine free ice tea, and caffeine free diet coke.
