I've been on Paleo for a few days now and I'm kind of getting sick of just drinking water. Is diet Dr. Pepper alright?

Sometimes V8 or the organic healthier version found in health food stores that is actually a lot tastier. I use it for the potassium boost.

Also, if I were to drink soda I'd opt for the real thing with real sugar, not HFCS or artificial sweeteners.

Veggie juice as in, V8 right? I know that V8 isn't really a normal veggie juice so I just want to be sure.

That is what seltzer is. I don't drink it often but it is a nice brisk refreshing drink as a change of pace. Otherwise it is coffee, tea, water and some veggie juice for me, while I watch my wife drink a Martini.

Carbonated water is okay though, right?

I'm curious what you think a "Paleo diet" is if you have to ask a question like that?

I'm not being flip or mean-spirited, I'm genuinely curious. Yours is not the first question like that, so it makes me think that there are some "Paleo" sites out there that do an exceptionally poor job of explaining Paleo.

You've taken up a new way of eating, presumably after researching to learn what this new way of eating is all about, so I'm curious what you've learned and where that you wouldn't have learned the answer to your question just in the very most basic explanation of what Paleo is and is not?

If you're using some modified, cheatified "Paleo Diet" as a short-term weight-loss crutch then I don't see the harm.

If you want to eliminate toxins and be healthy for the long haul following a "Paleo Lifestyle" then just forget about it. Why do you need sweet, bubbly beverages anyway? I don't even drink juice anymore and I honestly don't miss it (much) after just a couple months. It was tough at first.

We just discussed this issue the other day with diet soda. Do a quick search, why reinvent the wheel? My take is no way no how, others will differ. Go for some lime or lemon seltzer to get a change up from H20.
