Coffee Drinkers?

Monday, January 17, 2011

So I love my morning coffee and drink it every day. Occassionally I enjoy some afternoon or evening coffee but not very often.

Lately, I have noticed that when I drink my coffee, it really sucks the water right out of me. I feel the dehydrating effects.

Does anybody else notice this too???

    I think you might be on to something. This morning I had 2 cups of coffee and did my workout an hour later. I never drink anything during my workouts usually right after. But today I was extremely thirsty and couldnt figure out why. This wasn't the first time it has happened but after reading your blog it does make sense, considering coffee will dehydrate you and add exercising into the mix you are definitely going to be extremely thirsty. I can't stop having my coffee so I will have water after having my coffee prior to working out.

    I only drink coffee in the mornings (about 2 cups). And drink LOTS of water right after. I've never felt that way - though I've heard that coffee does that.

    I always new that it causes dehydration....I'm just wondering if anybody else can actually physically FEEL it. I have been drinking coffee for almost 25 years and this is the first time I can actually feel its effects!

    I haven't felt this. I drink my morning cup of regular joe every day before leaving the house and that's it for coffee for the day. I do start drinking water around 9 so maybe that helps me not feel it??

    I am assuming you are drinking regular and not decaf?
    I am a huge coffee drinker and in July decided I would switch to Decaf since I drink it all day long. My hydration is good, I sleep good, no stomach issues. I do believe caffeinated coffee can cause dehydration.
    Not sure about the chemical reasoning for this.
