I count it too.

I found this on google:

For a time, it was conventional wisdom not to count coffee as water intake in diets and health programs, but it has since been determined that, while caffeinated coffee is a diuretic, it does have the effect of counting as water intake. Hope this helps.

I like mine with no sugar and sometimes with low-cal creamer. emoticon I drink mine in the morning so it doesn't affect my night time sleep.

The liquid portion of coffee is water therefore I think it can count toward your water intake for the day. However, the caffiene is a diuretic agent and what you diurese is the liquid form, water.

Coffee is a stimulant and will increase your heart rate as well as your appetite.

No, coffee is not considered water because it is more of a diaretic. In other words, it has a tendency to go right though you. Sorry. emoticon

emoticon I don't know the answer, but hope it is decaf that you are drinking. emoticon For myself, I do not count my coffee or tea in my water count.

Great question. I'll be waiting to hear the answer, too. I drink coffee all day.

I drink at least 4 cups of coffee every morning. Does this count toward the 8 cups of water a day I should drink?
