water?

Sucha thing as drinking too much water? I know it sounds stupid but, it's an honest question.. Im thinking more along the lines of retaining water if you drink too much... Just wondering I drink about 6 20oz bottles a day at work..

I don't know, but I drink alot of water also. I have always heard that the body retains water if you don't drink enough...IE: It retains it because it doesn't know when it's getting anymore.

Well, there is a such thing as drinking too much water. ie: the Kid on trial from SMU for almost killing a pledge for making him drink way too much water, but that I'm sure was gallons, so unless you're binge drinking water like a mofo, you'll be just fine I'm sure.

Yes, you can actually die from too much water. People actually get "high" from drinking alot of water, as it flushes the sodium out of the cells. The big problems occur when the muscle cells will actually over-fill, and eventually burst.

Heres a cool conversion... Just FYI

1 US fluid ounce = 0.0078125 US gallons

6 bottles of water 20oz each = 120oz = .9375 gal So im right at a gallon a day..

You should be fine. You work indoors? If so, I'm sure drinking that much water will make you have to piss like an 80 year old woman. Every 15 minutes.

Thats what I figured thats why I started carring a ice chest w/ bottled water. I just found myself drinking 4-7 20oz bottles a day and didn't know if that was good/bad for my health...

Its easy to go thru a gallon of water daily. I remember a chick at work that would down a 2 litter every day before her lunch break, we all got a kick out of it since it was diet pepsi.

Damn, I need to catch up...lol

I was going to start a lifting/weight loss program in a week or two so I decided to cut out ALL soda and other drinks and stick to water and milk, thats why I was curious about the water intake...

Thanks guys!

lol, yeah your peeing cause your over hydrated. If you sweat a lot and drink a lot you don't pee at all... Trust me...lol
Look at Pro sports they don't pee during games cause they sweat their asses off.
