Although soda does have water in it, it is not a preferred source of obtaining your daily water intake. First, there is usually caffeine which causes your body to excrete more water. Second, the added sugar contributes to your overall calorie intake. Plain water is the best: it is readily absorbed and calorie free!

Does drinking soda count towards my daily water intake?
EZ to do. Thanks for a great article! No, dont count soda. Great info! One is not like the other. I also log black coffee, unsweetened tea, sodas, and many other things that have water IN them, but I don’t log them as water. Most days I make the water count, but again, when stressed
The does diet coke count towards water intake join And
I count it, since it’s liquid. Read this thread. Soda is loaded with all kinds of things including sugars, food colorings, preservatives, calories, etc. Fruit juices should be listed under your food log as well for the same reason. If you are logging soda on your water intake log then you are not accurately logging your caloric intake. Water and tea should be logged on the water log as they do not contain calories, and any sugar or milk you add to your tea should be entered under your food log. I hope this helps. I personally would not count soda as part of your water intake. Yes water is used to make soda however soda has calories and is filled with sugars and syrups. Your better off logging it as food because of the caloric intake.
