Does coffee, tea, pop or juice contribute to my daily water intake?

No. In fact they count negatively toward your daily water intake. Why? These liquids are all dehydrators. The exceptions are decaffeinated coffee and decaffeinated tea, particularly herbal tea - these do count towards your daily intake of water, if they are made with pure water. However keep in mind that decaf coffee still has tannic acid in it which you should not ingest large amounts of. Anything containing caffeine, which includes most pop, coffee and tea, dehydrates you. Drink a minimum of 8-10, 8-ounce glasses of pure water per day.
