    Its really not good to drink that much water, if you still feel ill you should ring the NHS advice line.

    I am doing Lighter life and we have recently been advised to drink to thirst and not the 4/5 litres a day. There was an article in the paper and on the news very recently warning of excessive water consumption and people have actually drowned from drinking too much.

    Just call and check if you feel ill at all, take care.

    I used to drink 4 litres every day when I did CD (in fact, I've done exactly that today), but I couldn't imagine drinking anymore than that.

    15 pints/8 litres does sound far too much - especially as the recommended amount on CD is 4 pints/2.25 litres per day.

    You'll probably be fine after you've had a good night's sleep - although I suspect you might have to get up once or twice in the night to pee *lol*.

    Just don't do it again :)
