I must have my coffee every day, but I don't count it as water. I like to get all that hydration in anyway.

Great question! I haven't and I agree with the others that it's a diuretic so probably better drinking 8 glasses of H2O all the same emoticon

I remember reading an article that basically said that if you are a regular coffee drinker the diuretic effect probably doesn't apply to you anymore and you can count it as water. I wish I could remember where I read it... probably in Self magazine. I drink about 3 cups a day too, and I don't count it as water, but I think you could...

Usually not. Coffee does not hydrate you, it is actually a diuretic . . . so it does not act the same way as consuming water.

I don't .... but then again I add a little cream and sugar to mine, so I count those calories.

Since being here since 2007 I have heard over and over you can count coffee. But to me it always seemed odd. To me its not a pure form of water and its a diuretic. Don't you go pee more once you drink coffee(that is the caffeine type). Caffeine makes you loose water in my opinion. But have heard you can count it. I am just waiting for the report that tells me the opposite, because it doesn't sound right to me.

Well, I may be a bad example, but I don't count my coffee or tea at all. I use Splenda and sugar free creamer, and it is my free item. I have lost 39 pounds so far! Sorry didn't answer your question, but I would count it as water. lol

Does anyone know if I can count my coffee intake towards my water intake? I typically have about 3 cups of coffee a day.

Just wondering.
