    that we are not allowed to have more than 2 litres of liquids??

    from chat:
    why should we only drink 1.5 lt of water, in all other diets it is encouraged to drink lots of water, specially in a high protein diet...
    sonja : Hi again Violeta! Actually it's from 1.5 litres of fluids (in case of water retention) to 2 litres per day no more no less. This is the correct amount for your kidneys to work enough to eliminate, but not too much. Have a nice evening!

    I drink way more than 2 litres... :rolleyes:

    No I didn't but it suits me - I hate water (unless it's in the form of a cup of coffee).

    Oh that is interesting. I vaguely recall the book saying you shouldn't drink too much, but didn't realise they considered more than 2 litres too much!

    I think their being a bit over the top setting an upper limit at 2 litres!

    Water intoxication is real (and does kill about 10 people a year, mostly runners) but it seems to happen when people drink 6 - 8 litres in a few hours.

    The actor Anthony Andrews almost died of water intoxication a few years ago - he was in a coma for days.

    I've actually switched to decaf tea as was feeling guilty about not getting enough plain water... don't feel so bad now :)
