I only count water- both flavored and plain

I don't count anything with caffeine or sugar, so I don't count coffee or soda. Sometimes I'll make caffeine free tea with artificial sweetener, and I count that. I also count those little packets that you mix into bottled water.

There is water in fruits and veggies but I just count the glasses I drink

Yes. The reason is that it is the only fluid your kidney's and liver do not have to filter.

I believe they say - less than 5 calories and it can be considered part of your 8 glasses of 'water'. So I rotate between cups of water and cups of Crystal light flavored water.

I used to not think so, but I've changed my mind.

So I vote yes

I don't count anything with caffeine in it (coffee, regular tea, colas, etc).

Here is a link to a great article called "Water is a Secret Ingredient":

Once you open this up, there are other water articles in the "Related Content" area to the right of the article.

Hope this helps.

Do you count drinks made with water [ie: coffee, tea, lemonade, soda, etc.] as part of your 8 cups of water each day? OR do you only count pure water?
