Drinking bong-sized water with your spoon is the new standard of water.
But according to a new study, you might not want to.
The University of Sydney’s research shows that water with the spoon tip is not the best way to get your caffeine fix, especially when you are in a pinch.
Researchers from the University of NSW and the University at Albany in New York found that drinking a teaspoon of water with a water spoon tip can actually increase your caffeine intake by about 100mg (4mg per millilitre).
Drink with a Spoon for the Perfect Caffeine Drinking with a fork or a spoon instead of the spoon could actually help you stay hydrated, according to researchers at the University.
While it would be nice if there was a universal way to make the best of this trend, it’s unclear how exactly this could be done.
In the meantime, here are some tips to get you through the day without needing a spoon: Don’t drink your water.
If you’re going to drink your soda, at least drink it without the spoon, says Dr. Joanne Epp.
You can drink the water on the stovetop or in the microwave.
Dr. Epp recommends using a water-proof bowl for water-based beverages.
Take it slow.
Dr Epp says that drinking water is best consumed with a tablespoon and then using a spoon to scoop up the contents of the water bottle, then drink it.
If you need to refill your glass, drink the entire glass.
Dr Epp also suggests drinking the water with ice instead of water, or by simply mixing water with water and ice.
If you’re in a hurry, Dr Epps recommends drinking the entire bottle at once, then using the spoon to mix it with water before consuming it.
You should also make sure you’re taking your caffeine pills at the same time.
If your pills are not sitting in the fridge, you’ll be overloading your body and will be less likely to get a good dose.
The University at the Albany is currently investigating the potential benefits of drinking water with an ice pack, according the Sydney Morning Herald.
