Our expert says:
You only need to drink 2,5 litres of LIQUID a day, even when you are slimming, so I hope you are not having an excessive liquid intake (8 glasses of water (8 x 300 = 2,4 litre) plus all the other beverages you may drink in a day)? Excessive liquid intake can lead to electrolyte imbalances because important minerals like potassium and sodium are washed out of the body, so please don't overdo your water intake. While drinking the correct amount of liquid a day is beneficial, drinking too much is harmful. If you find that your normal liquid intake per day falls short of 2,5 litres and you need to drink an additional glass or two of water you can certainly add a bit of fruit juice to it to make it taste better.
