    It was only when someone questioned me about it today, that i worked out that for the last i-don't-know-how-long (maybe 6 months?) i have been drinking 3 litres of water a day without even realising. I knew that I was averaging two large bottles a day, but i was under the impression that these were 1-litre bottles, not 1.5 as i discovered this morning. My stupid mis-calculation aside, is this any cause for alarm/concern?

    Other than a lot of trips to the toilet, I doubt there's much cause for concern there!

    Probably not, but water consumed through tea/coffee, food also counts. So it might be more than the 3L you counted.

    Well if you're constantly needing to go to the toilet then you're drinking too much. Remember that you also get water from food

    haha well you are losing it in some way, either urination, sweating or respiration. Either that or you miscalculated how much you are drinking

    I drink about 4 or 5 litres a day, at least. It's only a problem if you're diluting your salts, I guess if you're not eating anything but you're drinking shedloads. You can start to feel ill from drinking too much - it feels like dehydration, funnily enough.

    I drink about 3 litres of diet coke a day plus water, juice and tea/coffee so you'll be fine

    I do intense workouts so I drink gallons per day.Drinking plenty of water isn't all that bad unless you feel all bloat.

    I laughed when I read this. I seem to average at the moment about 8-10 litres a day, so it kinda paled in comparison.
