I am a pepsi-holic and the doc told me to get off the pepsi a long time ago but at my last appt he could see I am retaining alot of water and Im sitting there lying needless to say telling him I havent had any pepsi, I did cut down but not altogether I get real bad headaches without it. But anyway I told him I was drinking lots of water and he told me thats the worst thing I can do right now since Im retaining it so my ? is what can I drink? I have bad acid reflux or GERD so ice tea is out it really gives me bad heartburn. Is there anyone here who has this problem or both that might know what I can drink. Thanks so much dd
