    I've posted on a few threads about the importance of water but this article is an excellent reminder to us all that we should drink little and often - if you haven't had much during the day don't try and down your days water allowance in one sitting - the consequences can be fatal

    it is a little scary but knowledge is better than being unaware - the important thing is to drink little and often not to try and down all your water allowance in one go.

    i'm on a food diet and still drink about 6 litres of water some days (not coz I have to for the diet just coz I like it) - I just drink slowly and constantly throughout the day and it's often at the end of the day when I suddenly realise how much I've drunk. I've have never had a problem.

    just listen to your body and don't glug galloons of water all at once - little and often and you'll be amazed how much you have drunk by the end of the day

    I drink around 8 pints a day, through the day. I wouldn't dream of trying to drink it all in one go.

    Ditto.

    I wouldn't dwell on it. The body is a wonderful machine, you won't die from having had only 1 litre. remember some people drink cr*p like cola all day, which is far worse for them than 1 litre of water.
