I have always just drank water on top of everything else I drink during the day.

It all "officially" counts.

The things I personally count are water, seltzer (with or without flavor, but never with any kind of sweetener), tea, and coffee.

I drink coffee in the morning, and mostly water the rest of the day, though I will have the occasional diet soda. I count everything I drink, caffeinated or not.

Unfortunately, diet pop also has a lot of harmful stuff in there, even though it is pretty delicious! I only count water as water (since tea is a diuretic). If you want more delicious tasting water, a few friends of mine swear by fruit infusers for their waterbottles -- handful of raspberries or a few slices of lemon and it makes a huge impact on taste if you aren't keen on H2O!

ha ha ha I don't really know or soda counts or not (nice try!!) emoticon

Maybe others count them...I just count water (but that's just me).

I'm just curious what others do.

you know --- looking for that "excuse" that diet pop counts

--- probably diet rite would count ---no sodium or caffeine.

Personally, I only count water as water. But if you're drinking something that doesn't contain things that are going to dehydrate you, like caffeine, sugar or sodium, then you could probably count it as water too!

lol...I cheat by *not* counting tea. Tea, coffee, crystal light, iced tea, etc. is all fluid - so is technically a broth based soup.

I drink 4 cups of tea every morning, and 8 glasses of water during the day.....so technically I am at 12 per day, lol.
