Our expert says:
8 glasses of water a day in addition to your other liquid intake is excessive. Excess water intake can wash important minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and even sodium out of your body and cause an electrolyte imbalance. Don't have more than 3-4 cups of water a day in addition to your normal liquid intake. You can certainly use water that does not contain any energy or cal or kJ, i.e. artificially sweetened.
