When you're trying to decide whether to count something (as water, as a vegetable serving, etc), the key is to be clear in your own mind about why you're counting it. If you're counting water servings just to make sure you're sufficiently hydrated, then any liquid without alcohol or sugar would count. But if you're counting water as a way to teach yourself positive habits and self discipline, you might want to set stricter guidelines. I think unsweetened seltzer water would be okay either way, but coffee and tea would be up to you to decide.

I checked; the ingredients are carbonated water, natural flavors. There are 0 calories. Regardless I try to limit myself to 2 a day because carbonation is bad for bones.

What is everyone's opinion on tea? I drink a lot of it but most is very low caffeine. I generally don't add sugar or milk except for my morning Earl Grey which gets a splash of milk and chai which gets a splash of milk and a little honey.

You might want to check what is in the water. Some have sugars, sodium, and other additives. I also love seltzer water but stick to plain and flavor with lemon juice (or other fruits if I'm feeling it that day). I was surprised to learn that many bottled water contains sodium.

I didn't get here in a day, but damn I had fun! I know it won't be easy to get out but I plan on having fun.

I definitely love my San Pellegrino, but what I've found is while it's *refreshing*, it almost does nothing to address my thirst. I know that sounds really weird, it took me a while to figure it out. I can drink a whole bottle and still want water. I love the fizz, and that nice cold just hits the spot, especially in summer. But not for my desire for water. I've actually cut back on the Pellegrino and make sure I get more plain old water. So just pay attention to your body and ensure you're getting what you need

Yes, that would count toward your water intake for the day.

Does seltzer water (carbonated water) count as a serving of water?

The kind I drink is 0 calories and flavored with "natural flavors."
