Ask Dr. Denise Lamothe Q&A's
Name: Jennifer

I am 46 and I am also going through menopause. I too gained alot of weight which led me to Weight Watchers. I joined on March 8th 2005 and am proud to say that I have lost 15.6 Lbs. Here is my question. I have trouble drinking alot of water but if I use crystal light I can easily drink a gallon a day. How bad is this or is it okay. I am getting my fluids in this way.
sincerely Jennifer

Congratulations on a job well done! Keep up the great work. As far as the Crystal Light is concerned.... It's not the best choice. It has artificial sweeteners which I never recommend. Try seltzer water with a spritz of juice in it or straight lemon juice in it. This will help you and, of course, the very best thing to drink is pure, filtered water. Best of luck --

Be well,
