It has 0.5g of sugar & 5cals per 250ml. But is there some hidden sweetener I don't know about? I love the stuff but am dieting & don't really want this hindering my weight loss unknowingly. I know they're not all as healthy as they appear... thanks!

I think the problem with anything like this is that it encourages a sweet tooth. If you're drinking it throughout the day, your mouth always tastes sweet, doesn't it? That would surely have an impact on what you chose to eat.

@brilliantdisguise Thanks for your reply. I actually don't have much a sweet tooth in terms of food, much more of a savoury girl! & I have reasonably good will power when I'm on it it's just getting the motivation in the first place! More concerned about hidden sweeteners im not aware of!

Theyve got sucralose in it

What does the ingredient list say? That will tell you about sweeteners

I didn't know what the names were, is sucralose a sweetener @bruffin? And will that cause weight gain? Thanks...

It doesn't in itself cause weight gain. It is a sweetener though

I knew it was too good to be true hmm

But all the flavoured drinks will contain either sugar or sweeteners. You have to make the choice between the 2 or stick to plain water

You can gat lowcalorie drinks without sweeteners or sugars. There is range called Feel Good with no sugar or sweeteners and only 5 calories. Bought it in tesco last week

That is a flavoured water. Belvoir do a light version which is 26 cals per 100ml with no sweeteners

Thank you! Will keep an eye out

You could make your own by mixing fruit juice with water as that's essentially what those Feel Good drinks are

Or buying a good cordial and mixing with sparkling water
