When does water cease to be water?
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
I drink plain, cold water. At least 64 ounces every day. I also drink tea, vitamin water, the occasional Diet Dr Pete (soda stream), and rarely some Crystal Light.
Now it's generally accepted that adding a touch of citrus is fine, even preferable if it encourages someone to drink more water. But I've also read from various sources that tea, coffee, and even soda still count toward daily water intake.
Once you add caffeine, sugar, calories, and who knows what else do you still count it in your daily water? Personally, I don't. I only count my cold, clear water that I love so much but I'm curious what others think. Any input?
