1 Cup of Coffee, Then 1 Cup of Plain Water

OK, this doesn't sound like a biggie, but I've gotten used to about 12 cups of coffee (reg., not decaf) per day, more one colder days. Plus a pitcher of iced tea.

So, as a kindess to my kidneys and various other body parts, I've decided to consume equal cups of water and coffee. I use instant coffee, using the microwave to heat the water. Now, I'm doing every other cup of hot water just plain, no coffee. Should save calories, too, since I use about 1/4 c of 2% milk in each huge mug of coffee.
