Water, water everywhere so make sure you are keeping your glasses full of that H20. It’s no surprise that water makes it on our sweet list. This amazing liquid is zero carbs, zero sugar, and is very important to the body. According to Medical News Today, around 60 percent of your body is water. Wow!
