Are Caffeinated Beverages Dehydrating?

Are Caffeinated Beverages Dehydrating?

We love our coffee, green tea, and soda, so it makes sense that we want to know if one of our favorite beverages has an irksome side effect. Does consuming too many caffeinated beverages mean drinking yourself into dehydration?

Well, I know that about half an hour after drinking tea or coffee I'm off to the toilet. Only drink one cup of coffee a day, after breakfast, and two or three cups of tea.

I notice that the need to urinate seems more urgent after tea or coffee, unlike the slow build-up from other drinks.

Ahahaha, I agree with Elaine. I dont smoke, I dont drink alcohol, I dont do drugs, and you expect me to worry about my daily dose of caffeine? **** please ;)
Maybe I need to drink more water, but I cant NOT have caffeine.

What can I say? Had coffee since 3 years old (50/50 coffee and milk) and from around 8-9 years old just black. LOTS of coffee every day since, I even just it as thirstdrink when thirsty and never just plain water. Today I drink water all the time, but still a BIG coffee drinker. Now I am 48,5 years old and never sick or have any other problems. I don`t say it has to do with coffee but it makes you wonder. When I was 25 years old I figure out I had filtred 458kg of coffee, and today at least twice that amount. Maybe I`m a "black" man inside :-)

Great - thank you, not that it stopped my occasional cup of coffee, but just like to know the truth.
