How things can change in nutrition. Once we thought that eggs were to be feared, that they increase blood cholesterol and had way too much fat for good health. Not any more.

Caffeine was once considered a diuretic, which was believed to increase dehydration. However, we now know that while caffeine does cause some fluid loss, where it is consumed as a liquid there is generally a net gain in fluid, caffeine also has its benefits in sports nutrition and is no longer a banned substance. Roughly 1.07 mg of fluid is lost from the body. Given most drinks will provide about 200 mls of fluid this will still leave a net gain of about 150 mls of fluid entering the body.
