    I was just thinking about the amount of water I drink in a day........I have a litre before lunch, a litre after lunch before I leave work - then at home I have at least 4-5 pints of water throughout the night. Is that too much?

    That makes it about 4.5 litres I think, which is good.

    As long as you don't drink it all at once it's fine :)

    hi normally it canbe dangerous to overload on water because it affects the urea and electrolyte balance but you would have symptoms if you had derranged levels dont worry i drink lots :)

    You're not - plently of people on here drink 4-5 litres :)

    If it bothers you, then cut down to 3-4 litres.

    Thanks everyone - I find that I'm thirsty on CD so it helps to drink loads. Won't worry about it anymore.

    lol - the poor thing - maybe that's why someone on another thread said she'd treat herself to a bathroom makeover when she lost a certain amount of weight - ha ha

    I don't think she suffered too much because of it:) she said that because she drank so much water, she lost the most weight out of all the people in her group:)
