What do you drink? in Food, Drink and Condiments Posted January 25, 2021 On 1/17/2021 at 10:26 PM, Liza_Beth said: I had some problems with drinking plain water in the past. I get sick of drinking water, and I figured since herbal tea doesn't have caffeine, that it counts too. Also water with a small amount of lemon juice is a great replacement for over sugared drinks. Worked for my brother who is really a sugar addict. Actually, a small update. I decided to talk about this with my doc last week and she got me thinking: The original study, as I understand it, suggested that 2 litres of water a day were the typical baseline requirement. But it was not suggesting this water had to be consumed as a beverage or that without flavoring, etc. It included water contained in all food and drinks. I have always thought that it doesn't count as water, but well, according to my do it is.

No, it is not really good for consumption. In moderation, though, it should be harmless. But guess that's another reason why it shouldn't be used as a replacement for, well, regular water.
