Our expert says:
If you drink those 6 glasses of water a day (about 1,5 litres?) and your total LIQUID intake (everything you drink all day long) does not exceed 2,5 litres (10 x 250 ml cups of liquid), then you are not overdosing on water. Water retention manifests by swelling of the ankles and hands, feeling puffy and no change in weight (even if you lose fat). Mild diuretics can help with this problem, so chat to your dr about it. He/she will be able to examine you and tell if you have water retention.
