The answer will vary depending on who you ask. I've had Drs. tell me diet
soda is the same as water. Others will tell me to drink it in addition to
water and still others tell me to avoid it because of the sweetener used.
I don't know what kind of Kool Aid you bought. The stuff I've seen in the
pouches does have a few carbs, I think. I could be wrong. Maybe it is just
the calories I saw. I don't like drinking stuff with calories. I might
have a serving in a day but no more.
