    Too much water is very harmful to the body. It dilutes important things like salt which affects the brain. One woman was put on a very low sodium diet and then told to up her water intake - she had an epileptic fit and now has terrible brain damage. Too much can swell the brain and you can literally drown. There is such a thing as water-poisoning.

    How Much Water Should You Drink?

    I was watching "This Morning" a few weeks ago and they were talking about a tennis player (i think) who drank 17 pints of water and died. =/
    So i think there is a limit, and like rainbow said, you should only drink about 6 liters a day.

    You can drink too much water and it can be fatal. My old CDC used to recommend no more that 6 litres a day.

    I used to find the amount of pounds I had lost a week correlated to the amount of water I drank.

    If I drank 2 litres, I'd lose 2lbs, 3 litres - 3lbs etc. It was weird!

    4 litres a day is a good amount to aim for honey. I aim for between 4/5 per day and have not had any adverse effects

    4 litres would be fine!

    The 3 main VLCD's have different recommendations regarding water anyway...
    LighterLife say 4 litres
    Cambridge says 2 litres
    Lipotrim says 2 litres.

    I'd go for 4, the more water you drink, the more you lose!

    Thanks guys, I knew you could get water poisoning but thought it was only if you had like 20 litres or something! :eek: Think il cut down to 4/5 litres a day to be on the safe side :)

    my llc said the whole diluting of salts does not happen with a vlcd only with conventional food!! that because ur only eating 500 cals a day water intake is ok. just dont drink 10 litres in 1 hour!!
    i drink mostly 5-6 litres a day and she said this is fine. it all depends on diff peoples bodies!!
