Our expert says:
Basically adults require 2,5 litre of liquid per day (this includes all the liquids you drink in a day, not just the water). So measure how much you actually drink and if you are exceeding 3 litres then cut back. Use an energy drink when you exercise because they not only provide you with energy, but also contain potassium and sodium to prevent electrolyte imbalances which can occur if you overdo your water intake.
