This is taken from the above link
"... Always follow your caregiver's directions about how much liquid to drink.
You may need to limit the amount of liquid you drink each day to eight cups (64 ounces total) or less. Liquid intake does not only include water. It also includes ice, coffee, soda, milk, yogurt, pudding, ice cream, gelatin, or popsicles. Liquid intake also includes the water that you drink when you take your medicine. Check your cups, bowls, mugs, and glasses to see how much liquid they hold.
Write down and add up how much liquid you have each day. This will help you keep track of your liquid intake. If you use certain medicines that help your body get rid of fluid, you may often feel thirsty. If you feel thirsty, do not drink more than your caregiver tells you to. Instead, try sucking on small amounts of sugar-free candy to keep your mouth from getting too dry.
Follow your caregiver's directions about the amount of salt to include in your diet. You may also be told to limit the amount of salt you eat. This means that you should not add salt to your food during meals or when you cook. You should also eat fewer high salt foods. Many vegetable juices and soups such as tomato soup, and packaged meats such as sausage contain a high amount of salt. Packaged foods such as seeds, nuts, potato chips and pretzels also may contain a high amount of salt."
It is very important that you limit what you drink so as not to put extra pressure on your heart!
