    Yesterday I did a quick bit of math and determined that between coffee, soft drinks, etc. I probably consumed around 130 oz. of liquid.


    That seems a bit much, yes?

    Yes, especially if it was made up of coffee and soft drinks.

    dixon,


    I wouldn't worry about being overhydrated; but the fact that the liquids you drank were coffee and soft drinks DOES concern me. Coffee and most soft drinks have a lot of caffeine in them, with is actually a diuretic. Most folks here limit their coffee consumption; and pretty much steer clear of soft drinks.


    How about water to drink?

    I do drink water. Some is flavored and carbonated, some is coffee-flavored. )


    The only good news, I guess, is that the coffee is chicory, which is about 1/2 the typical caffeine level of regular coffee. The soft drinks are part caffeinated, part not. All involve aspartame or dextrose sweeteners though. I bought some white tea at the store tonight, thought I'd give that a try.
