These Water Sensations don't seem to be any different than diet soda, 
since they still contain artificial sweeteners and probably 
artificial flavors as well, although I didn't look at the whole 
ingredients list.  The only difference is once you pur this into your 
water it won't be carbonated.

I used to drink at least 2 20 oz. bottles of Diet Dr Pepper at work 
every day and then guzzle Crystal Light or more soda at home.  It's 
hard getting used to plain water but I'm finally able to get in 
around 6 glasses a day.  Sometimes plain, sometimes with just some 
lemon.  At work I usually buy only 1 bottle of sida a week at most 
and haven't made any Crystal Light at home in over a month.  When I 
do make it, I end up drinking the 2 quarts within 2 days, though!

I've never noticed diet drinks affecting my BG but I feel better 
drinking water.
