If you'd normally reach for a soda to quench your thirst, we have a better (but still fizzy) option for you. 

Suzanne Dixon, a registered dietitian with The Mesothelioma Center, tells SheKnows that she recommends squeezing lemon or lime into sparkling water. 

Not only will this give you the flavor-plus-fizz combo you crave from soda, but it's not full of sugar and empty calories and has the added bonus of some vitamin C from the citrus fruit

There are also plenty of no-added-sugar flavored seltzer waters to choose from — or for the less adventurous, there's always plain.
