Do you think that you get enough water? And how would you know if you're dehydrated?
This is a very good guide, a very easy way to tell. 3 litres a day sounds like an awful lot, have a look at some of the earlier posts on drinking too much water.I get enough water. You know you`re hydrated if your piss is clear. The darker the yellow the more dehydrated you are.
You're probably right, Freddy. I guess I was getting scared for nothing1 to 2 liters a day is no where near the amount that would kill you. We're talking 10 liters in roughly 8 hours is the average amount consumed when people died.
You have to keep in mind that it is virtually impossible to accidentally overdose on water. If you die of water intoxication its because you really wanted to go that way.
Sorry Freddy that absolutely is not true. Research it on the internet, talk to your doctor but be very,very careful about consuming large amounts of water. It's called water intoxication.Yeah, you don't need to worry. You'll start to vomit water and get headaches before you reach the lethal amount.
But if you take vitamin supplements, especially B vitamins, your pee can be very yellow at first and then clear throughout the day as you drink water.I never knew if you pee clear your hydrated....Thx for the tip freddy!
Depending on the health of the individual there are several health problems that can be affected by drinking vast quantities of water, some of these can be previously undiagnosed and only come to light when the system is required to handle huge quantities of liquid. I stand by my advice to talk to a doctor about this.How is that not true? Before you die of water intoxication your brain swells and you get headaches, these headaches lead to vomiting. Those that continue drinking past this stage are the ones that die. Your body will see water as a toxin and try to remove it from the body, hence the vomiting. It's not like you drink the water and feel all fine and dandy and then die all of a sudden. It's not that "graceful". There's lots of pain and puke involved in the process.
