Our expert says:
While it is necessary for adults to drink 2,5 litres of liquid a day (which can include water), drinking litres and litres of water will not make you lose weight, no matter what temperature it is. You also need to be careful not to drink water that is too hot because you can scald your mouth and oesophagus. If you overdo your liquid intake then this can lead to electrolyte imbalances because vital nutrients like potassium and sodium are washed out of the body. So stick to having 2,5 litre of liquid per day and use an energy-reduced diet and exercise to lose weight.
