    Hi,

    I tend to get through 4litres of water a day on Sole Source / Sole source plus.

    Sometimes though, I want to drink more, but I'm worried about drinking too much. I've heard the stories about people drinking too much and 'drowning' because of it.

    How much is too much? I find 4litres quite easy. I am just under 17st, I cycle to work. Does the 'safe' amount change depending on time of the month, or erm.. whether you have runny poo? :s

    Any advice gratefully received!

    It's only dangerous if you have too much in a short space of time. Some people have 6 or 7 litres per day, which sounds crazy to me, but spread out over the day is fine.

    i drink 4 litres on the average day spaced out between 7am and midnight. on hot days or when im particularly active i might have 5 litres over that time frame.

    i also sip my fluids rather than downing a glass or more at a time

    Thanks guys. I only drink quickly just after my cycle to work, which I always have.

    Good to know I'm not drinking too much. Thank you!
