Little water is bad, water - well

You may mistakenly conclude that this number is small, and all the water is lost solely while sweating and urinating. In fact, the human body loses water even during each exhalation. The average person loses for days two and a half liters of water to maintain water balance, you need to drink about the same amount.
Force yourself to drink daily two and a half liters of water is quite difficult. Does not make sense in the evening to "finish" the right amount, drinking five glasses of water. But that number is a rough guideline. Depending on additional factors, but this may vary.
To understand whether there is enough water you drink enough to pay attention to urine color. If it is dark, increase the amount of liquid.
For example, smokers need to drink a little more water, as well as those who are actively involved in sports. A number of diseases requires to consume more fluids – colds or illnesses which dehydrate the body. To drink more than two and a half litres of water are needed in the presence of edema or excessive weight.

If the problem with the edema is serious, try to exclude from a diet of overly salted food, and try to season your food to a minimum. In order that the water balance has fully recovered, and the swelling is gone, your body will take from weeks to months. But this does not mean that after the disappearance of the swelling, you can greatly reduce the amount of water.
