I don't drink any plain water at all. I drink sweet Tea made with Splenda. Which I consider the same as water. As long as it is not carbonated your body will absorb it the same as plain water.

I drink about 64 ounces a day unless I am out and about then a little less.

Water...l lately it has been no water at all unless I go out to a sit down restaurant. I have been WAY too much with the diet soda, I plan on cutting it back soon. Coke Zero and Diet Mtn Dew, Mello Yello Zero and Tab have become my water substitutes.

I drink a lot of water, probably 80-oz at least. I'm having some issues with artificial sweeteners, so I've all but eliminated my 3 diet soda/day habit. I have recently decaffeinated myself, too. My one treat is when I eat popcorn at the movies: can't have popcorn without a big Diet Coke.

Besides a cup or two of coffee each day all I drink is water. I don't really know how much though I usually just take a bottle to work with me and drink the water from my fridge through out the day when I am thirsty (maybe another 3-5 large glasses worth?)

I too have two cups of coffee (black) in the morning. I drink at least a gallon of water everyday. I also will drink anywhere between 16-20oz of pure coconut water in the afternoons.

My big splurge is black unsweetened iced tea!!

90-100oz plain water, one 8 oz cup of coffee in the morning, and usually one glass of crystal light with dinner.

I try to drink at least 60 oz. I don't drink soda, have 1-2 cups of coffee per day and save sweet tea for singing out. Except right now, being pregnant, I am not drinking any coffee and I can't stand the taste of water so I am drinking tea and powerade until this water aversion goes away.

I was in that range, but the Doctor told me to cut back on all liquids, my potassium level kept coming back too low on my blood work.

I don't drink anything but water unless I'm at a restaurant where I might have a glass of unsweetened iced tea. I probably have 80oz of water a day.

In terms if hydration, your body doesn't know the difference between cola and tap water. Under some circumstances the soda having sodium can provide better hydration.
