    Wrong. You can drink too much water... but it's very difficult to. Just drink when you're thirsty and you'll be fine- and you won't drink too much.

    i know you can but come on. its almost impossible. i drank half a gallon of water just writing that post. and you never hear about someone dying from drinking to much water. ive heard of it once that i can remember and it was drug related. doctors should focus on real problems.

    You CAN die from drinking too much water. Everything in your body relies on balance... get too much or too little and you're screwed. It's a good thing our bodies are pretty good at regulating themselves. Just drink when you think or want to drink and you'll be fine. There's no point in counting ounces of water every day. Depending on your metabolism and body chemistry, you'll need different amounts of water than someone else with the same body weight.

    I drink when I'm thirsty, but I can understand why some people might want to use water to lose weight. At least for the short term, it can help overeaters from eating as much. Or, to help normal people feel full.

    <<<<<<Doesn't overdrink water.
    I do take in a pot of coffee a day, plus some of the straight stuff. I know about the caffeine thing Blanco. :lol:

    this is just retarded... i mean funneling and dieing from alcohol poisioning is one thing, but to funnel water and drown with a bunch of people around you, send them all to the chair...

    That's just common sense.

    I have seen what a saline imbalance can do to my mom though.... so definitely eat healthy (she used too little sodium in her cooking, brain neurons stopped firing correctly) and drink the right amount of water.

    I suggest you all listen to Lewis Black's routine on drinking water


    "When I grew up, if I wanted water.. I would walk to the sink, Get my little cup, Open the tap, And have a drink. Then I would go outside and play. Now you can't touch the water in the tap, Because someone decided to stop purifying the water because it was too expensive. But then again, you're buying bottles of water - So you're spending the same fuck amount on it ! And did you notice that the same time they started charging you for water in bottles, the doctors started saying "Drink 8 bottles a day!" It's b-b-b-ullshit !
