Yes. I actually did a presentation at work on this stuff.
You can actually get your water intake several ways.
Yes, water, but 100% juice (but then you have the calorie issue), and fruits and veggies.
Besides the obvious of 'watermelon', there are a lot of fruits and veggies that are more then 70% water. Grapes, strawberries, peaches, apples, bananas, etc all have water and can help with your water intake. I don't know how to translate that into "cups" but it does help.
A lot of people say that flavoring their water helps them to drink more. Its easier somehow when your water tastes like fruit punch. You almost feel like your cheating, but you're only getting 5 calories.
I worry about the artificial sweeteners so Countrytime makes a lemonade without it, even though it's got a few more calories, i think it's better than not drinking enough water.
