Does coffee dehydrate you? What do you do to compensate this?
The caffeine in coffee can cause dehydration. Drinking decaffeinated coffee would be the easiest solution. If that's not an option, then drinking water in addition to coffee might be the next logical choice.
Water is the solution here. 1 coffee = 2 water. That's my motto. Just pump some water daily and you should be fine
Caffeine is a diuretic so yes, drinking coffee or any caffeinated beverages can dehydrate you. Compensate by drinking lots of fresh water.
It can so I opt for decaf coffee. When that is not possible, I drink lots of water while and after drinking coffee.
I believe that it used to be thought that the caffiene in coffee acted as a diuretic, which makes you go to the bathroom more often. Now, though, there has been research that only in large amounts does caffiene act as a mild diuretic. In fact, they suggest that coffee hydrates you instead of dehydrates unless you drink too much of it. Drinking alot of water is always a good thing for you no matter what else you drink, but if you are dehydrated you need to drink more water than usual. I actually heard that once you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated.
