    Cool toward a goal

    Hola, I'm having some trouble with this phrase - I hope someone can help.

    - Try to drink at least 6 eight ounce glasses of fluids (preferably water) a day.
    - Caffeine and alcohol are diuretics and do not count towards this goal and can lead to dehydration.

    I'm having trouble translating "count towards this goal" - this is what I came up with so far:

    ØLa cafeína y el alcohol son diuréticos y pueden causar deshidratación, no cuentan hacia la meta de la cantidad de líquidos que debe tomar.


    Let me know what you guys think.
    Gracias!!!!!!!!
    Stephanie

    My 5 cents:
    La cafeína y el alcohol son diuréticos que pueden llevar a la deshidratación, así que no cuentan para tal fin.

    Hola cielo ¿qué tal estás, mem?

    Estoy contigo para lo de "no contar", me parece la mejor solución.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    Hi, this is my version.
    - Try to drink at least 6 eight ounce glasses of fluids (preferably water) a day.
    - Caffeine and alcohol are diuretics and do not count towards this goal and can lead to dehydration.

    La cafeína y el alcohol no sirven para tal fin ya que son diuréticos y pueden causar desidratación.
