What is your take on drinking filtered carbonated water drinks.

I tried a carbonated beverage, once.  Didn't bother me but it also didn't quench my thirst b/c I had to drink it very slowly and keep doing little burps.  I think I got maybe 10 sips in, lol.  I haven't been told it's harmful, just that it could cause pain/gas.

I can't drink anything carbonated. I get sick. My stomach fills with gas and I'm just in to much pain. I avoid it.

 I personally stay away from carbonated drinks. I already have enough gas.

 I've seen people saying that they start back on diet sodas within a few months after surgery but I'd like to stay away from those until at least 6 months out. I got my bottle about a week ago..and I just started drinking it maybe 3 days ago..I tried two ounces the first day and when I didn't have an issue with that I upped to 4 oz..It feels good to drink something bubbly..I have it at the end of the day as my...way to go you got all your protein in today..reward..haha

My take is that if it gives you gas or discomfort, don't do it.  Otherwise, enjoy.

It was impressed on me, by my trainer, that diet cokes, carbonated beverages make weight loss difficult. I have heard it from more than one professional so I will not give in to something that was an addiction before my RnY.
