How much water is too much water?

    Hi

    I started on the Cambridge yesterday (and am not really loving it so far, but I know I'll be over the worst soon and can't wait to start shifting the fat) and am determined to keep my water intake as high as I can tolerate.

    Overall I had around 5 litres yesterday, plus coffee which resulted in using an unthinkable number of public toilets yesterday :eek: in 7 different towns as I travelled around for my work, but it's all for a good cause.

    Today I've had around 2 litres already plus a few coffees and am aiming for 6 litres total.

    Is there a saturation point when too much water becomes unhealthy, and does anyone know roughly how much that is?

    Thanks

    6 Litres is fine. Anymore probably aint good, but unless you drink 11 or over you are not doing any harm

    Somebody may correct me - but this is what I understand

    Good luck

    I would aim for between 4-5 litres a day...don't drink it down to quickly as this can cause the kidneys problems coping. Spread the water out maybe 1/2 litre every half hour...drunk slowly.
    6 litres shouldn't cause a problem but no need to go over..you will still have a good weight loss.
    Good luck and get through the next couple of days you will then be in ketosis and feel a lot better.

    Thanks for your replies - it's great to have some reassurance. I doubt I'll manage much more than 6, but at least I know I don't have to push myself to acheive that - I might try to stick to the 5 litre mark - and maybe avoid at least one public toilet a day!;)

    I think the diet has started to effect my brain (what little I have) because I am beginning to worry about silly little things, like too much water, and taking paracetamol for the headache, although on the plus side, I'm not feeling hungry.

    Thanks again

    You can take paracetamol for your headache that's not a problem.. headaches should go when you hit Ketosis,,
