How bad is it to drink diet tea? For example 1 gallon a week.

How bad is it to drink diet tea? For example 1 gallon a week.

Not too bad: Tea also contains caffeine. Diet tea contains an artificial edulcorant like splenda or nutrasweet or alike which is suspicious but not proven to cause many things. 1 gallon a week for someone with congestive heart failure or for pts with difficulty to urinate may be problematic. But in general I do not see anything wrong. ...Read more

Your green tea: Consumption will not hurt you. People on Coumadin (warfarin) need to keep their intake consistent because more green tea lowers Coumadin (warfarin) levels and less green tea raises them. If simone on Coumadin (warfarin) drinks green tea regularly, suddenly stopping it can double their Coumadin (warfarin) level. Green tea has many health benefits.

Is it okay to drink brisk tea which is 80 calories. I drink about 2 bottles of water a day. I don't eat a lot of fruit to lose all this weight?

80 calories per ?: You say 80 calories but in how much - ? 8 ounces? If so, then every ounce you drink is adding 10 calories to your daily intake that provides NO nutrition for you. If you drink 16 ounces a day, you could have had a healthy apple instead and would have gotten nutrients and fiber from it! 2 bottles of water a day (24 ounces?) not enough - you need about 60-80 ounces a day! ...Read more

How safe is to drink 2 gallons a water a day while on a low calorie diet?

How safe is to drink 2 gallons a water a day while on a low calorie diet?

Water intake: Not really safe. You need roughly 64 ounces of fluid a day. 2 gallons of water is 256 ounces of fluid, not only that, it is free water rather than balanced electrolytes. The net effect will be that you will eventually become hyponatremic and that can cause you all sorts of problems. You could probably do a gallon and still be okay. 2 is pushing it. ...Read more

How much drinking decaf green tea is too much? I gave up coffee for this and iove it.  Just want to make sure its ok to drink a lot in one day.

Very safe unless...: You would want to limit caffeinated green tea due to the caffeine content but it is safe for most people to drink copious quantities of decaf green tea. However, there is one important exception; those with certain autoimmune diseases could have them aggravated by green tea. If you do not have autoimmune issues then it is quite safe.
