I drink plenty of other beverages, won´t that cover my water needs?

Liquid vs. Water

Many people mistakenly believe any type of liquid will count towards them getting their 8+ glasses of water per day. That is not correct, especially speaking in terms of soda, other caffeinated beverages, alcohol etc. Actually those beverages with caffeine and alcohol in them contribute to dehydration, so the more of those you drink the more water you will need to drink. The other thing to look at is the sugar content of those other beverages you drink. You may be getting liquid but at the same time overloading on sugar! That is why unadulterated water is best for hydration purposes.
