    Enhanced vitamin waters are all the rage these days, but they can contain upwards of 50 calories per serving. So if you’re sip, sip, sipping these “waters” all day (a noble goal because we want to drink plenty of actual water), you could be getting hundreds of unnecessary, extra calories in your diet. And all those extra vitamins? A 1999 survey by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) showed that the average person already consumes close to or above the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for many of the vitamins in these beverages.
