I have heard that we are not supposed to have caffeine because of it's dehydrating qualities. However, I really want to try some of the Big Train Frappe products because I keep hearing how great they are. Does caffeine really dehydrate us that much? I have heard so many different things. I have heard that if you have 8 oz of a highly caffeinated drink, you have to drink 16 oz of fluid to make up for the deficit it creates. On the other hand, I have heard that it does not cause significant dehydration as long as you stick to only 8 oz or so.
Anyone happen to know what is accurate?
I was told to stay away from coffee. I have a history of ulcers and was told coffee could make the chances much worse. And ulcers for us is a very very serious problem so my advice would be to not have coffee in any form.
