Our expert says:
Basically adults require 2,5 litres of LIQUID (water, coffee, tea, milk, fruit juice, cold drinks, etc) a day. If it is very hot or if you engage in very strenuous exercise then you can increase your liquid intake slightly as governed by thirst. According to Prof Tim Noakes most athletes drink too much water and induce water intoxication.
