đŸ’„DOES COFFEE DEHYDRATE YOU?đŸ’„ - đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸłThere's a tired old myth in the world of health that says coffee dehydrates you. It stems from a few places (not least of which includes an outrageously flawed 1928 study), but mainly from the fact that coffee can act as a mild diuretic (i.e. it makes you pee). - 🏓Here's the thing >> just because something makes you pee does NOT mean it dehydrates you. Drink several cups of water and you'll have to pee real quick, but it still has a net hydrating effect. - 🩄Same goes for coffee - which is mostly water, anyway - and even though it might not hydrate you as well as water, it still hydrates you. - 🐣Worth noting, the mild diuretic effect in coffee doesn't even last long. If you're a habitual coffee drinker, research shows you'll develop a tolerance to it within several days. So not only will it actually hydrate you, soon enough it won't even have the mild diuretic effect. - 🐳Your takeaway? Coffee is magical and anyone who says otherwise is clearly Lord Voldemort or Bellatrix Lestrange or someone equally as terrible and you should never talk to them again. Ever. - #coffee #coffeemug #coffeelife #coffeelover #coffeeaddict #coffeetime #coffeeshop #coffeecup #preworkout #preworkoutmeal #preworkoutsnack #postworkout #energy #energydrink #caffeine #caffeineaddict #caffeineandkilos #weightlift #weightlifter #weightlifting #liftheavy #bodybuilding #bodybuildingcom #bodybuildinglifestyle #weightloss #nutritioncoach #dieting #alwaysoptimal #syattfitness
