Why doesn't the water in tea/coffee/soda count?
Why doiesn't the water you consume in the form of tea, diet drinks or coffee, count towards your daily intake of water?

Yeah I agree, things like crystal light and coffee are 95% water if not more. I mean coffee is water that runs over the grounds and extracts the flavor nothing more.

I know quite a few people who used crystal light while "dieting down" for shows.. there aren't many calories and it's not a diuretic, I drink it all the time. I have no problem drinking water at the gym, but at work I don't drink enough, gets boring . Crystal light helps me drink more throughout the day at work

its just a precation since a dehydrating fluid doesnt hydrate as well obviously. But I wonder if the water loss from a cup of coffe is greater then the total ammount of fluid in the cup.
fluid from other sources(milk, lemonade ect)does count.

What about caffeine free diet soda?
07-14-2005, 06:39 AM #10
it should be cool to use. one thing though with sodas ect is that they contain stuff that can effect mineral and vitamin balance negativly. All cola products for example are very rich in phosphor and that ****s up the kalcium balance and can lead to osteperosis(sp) even if having lots of kalcium aviable.

I did not know that...
I think this means I'm going to have to start limiting my soda intake, which is outrageous

havign soda everynow and then shouldnt be a concern if you make sure to eat veggies/fruits and multivit/mineral. But dont drink it in gallons

coffee isnt a diuretic really, caffeine is, so decaffinated coffee sounds fine

About the diet soda comment....try cutting it out for a month or so and you will feel so different. Even thought there is no sugar in it, all the sodium and carbonation makes you retain a ton of water. If you drink it regularly you dont notice it but when you cut it out, you feel so much better. I use to drink like 2 litre a day....f'n gross, now I cant drink it at all.

Decaffeinated coffee is the tool of the devil. They use wicked amounts of chemicals to remove the caffeine...not worth it!!
IMHO a few cups of coffee won't hurt you.
