Look and Feel Camera-Ready with vitaminwater zero™!

Back in June, I wrote about how I was dieting for the photo shoot I had at Vogue Studios for a 6-month ad campaign for  SK-II skincare. I jokingly called it my “Anna Wintour Diet” as I wanted to look my best after seeing The Devil Wears Prada. Not that I was by any means fat, but I wanted to be my most healthy, and have kept up my diet and have lost a lot of weight and inches since I started my journey. AskMissA.com’s Nutritionist, Holli Thompson gave her take on my diet, and showed me where I could make improvements, and where I was making good choices.

One thing Holli didn’t approve of was my penchant for Diet Pepsi. I carry a bottle of Diet Pepsi everywhere I go. I loved vitaminwater® , but as I’m always calorie counting, I wasn’t thrilled about the calories, so I’m a HUGE fan of vitaminwater zero , and have begun toting vitaminwater zero mega-c around with me rather than my Diet Pepsi. I love that it’s pink — my favorite color and my branding — but I also love that it has loads of vitamin C. This time of year, it’s especially important to get lots of vitamin C so that you don’t come down with a cold. No fun being sick and not being able to enjoy all the holiday festivities!

Check out vitaminwater zero, if you haven’t already, and become be sure to “like” vitaminwater zero on Facebook and follow @vitaminwater on Twitter! Remember, it’s not just what you eat that puts on weight — it’s also what you drink! So choose something calorie free, and full of important nutrients! Zero calories means you can drink all you want, and there’s no artificial sweeteners hiding in there either!

vitaminwater zeroprovides 100% of the daily value of vitamin c and 40% daily value of four essential b vitamins, per serving. With proper hydration, a healthy diet and  workout routine, you will always look and feel camera ready!

P.S. Please note that while vitaminwater zero™ is an AskMissA.com advertiser, I don’t allow just any brand to advertise on my website, and do not do “pay to play”. I would rather be free to speak my mind than take money from an advertiser whose product or services I didn’t believe in. When I make a recommendation of a product, it is because I truly believe in it.
