Is too much water bad for you?
I am dieting and don't eat anything after 6! Nothing fried, Just healthy meals (i.e Lean Cuisine, Helthy Choice...and Subway lol) ....no cokes JUST water!!! I hear if you drink to much water its bad for you is this true? if it is how much water are you or can you drink a day???

Yeah, if you drink like 2 gallons in 2 hours, it is bad. You'd have to try really hard to drink enough water to actually cause your body harm. Half a gallon a day is usually good for most people, you'll need more if you are sweating a lot though. Really though you can drink as much as you want. Don't worry about it, unless you are making yourself drink til you are sick, you aren't going to harm yourself.

It is bad, you can drown your cells and die. Are you idiots serious?! Look it up! Evidently you haven't taken any Biology class to know anything. So all my thumbs down.... screw ya'll it's called water intoxication and it occurs because you become over-hydrated and aren't replacing the sodium that is lost- this is dilutional hyponatremia. Water intoxication basically drowns the nutrients in your body to a point that they can no longer do their job. This is only if you are drinking CONSTANTLY though. If you are just drinking normally then no, drinking water is good for you. Anybody want to argue this? Thumbs down this!

the recomended amount is 8, 8 oz. glasses per day.

It would have to be a lot like way over a gallon.

Sya aekira
yes.. It could be bad for you.. Just drink it from time to time.. You should drink 7 to 9 cup a day...

actually yes, it could drown your organs, many ppl who take xtc drown from drinking too much water at once...

water in moderation can not harm you, and is super healthy. but you need vitamins and other things that water does not have that comes from juice and milk.

8 glasses of water is nice, but not necessary

Steel Rooftops
Yeah, it flushes out you're electrolytes, try drinking water and gatorade or powerade and water

Too much water will flush nutrients from your body and can be fatal. It's known as water poisoning. Its the kinda stuff that used to happen at drinking contests.

First of all, Lean Cuisine & other frozen meals are not healthy, neither is nuking anything in a microwave.

What is healthy is something like chopping up fresh vegetables & stir frying them & adding some slivered almonds, etc. Or make your own salads or in winter make your own hearty soups & have them with bread. You need to get a healthy food cook book. I also don't agree with you're regime either, I think you need to consult a dietician for proper advice, your doctor can send you to one & give you weight loss advice also.

Usually the rule is to not eat after 8pm, not 6pm. I imagine all that water after 6pm is making you get up in the night to go to the toilet? If so then it's not good for your sleep patterns.

The whole water issue has been debated & there are differing viewpoints on it. Some say if your urine is colourless then it means you are drinking too much water. Some say too much water causes you to flush out vitamins & things your body needs. Some say 1 or 1 and a half litres of water for a woman per day is normal & that a large guy who is 6 feet tall might need maybe 3 litres (not sure what this converts to in your country, check out an online measurement converter). Some say drinking lots of water does nothing for weight loss.

I tend to go along with the urine looking like water theory, that if it looks like water then you're drinking too much water & that's when you should stop for the day.

You also need fibre, if you don't have enough in your diet you can buy some psyllium husks from your health food store. I find I look bloated but when I started having the husks everyday (you mix them up in fruit juice) the bloating left. Be sure to not over use these though as you are heading for abusing laxatives territory if you do. Even though they are a natural source of fibre.

If you eat plenty of foods that are naturally rich in water, such as vegetables, fruits, and cooked legumes and whole grains, you may not need to drink very much water at all. If you do not use much or any salt and other seasonings, your need for drinking water goes down even further.

Conversely, if you do not eat a lot of plant foods and/or you add substantial salt and spices to your meals, you may need to drink several glasses of water every day.

Regardless of what your diet looks like, if you sweat on a regular basis because of exercise or a warm climate, you will need to supply your body with more water (through food and/or liquids) than someone who does not sweat regularly.

Ultimately, the best guidance I can provide on this issue is to follow your sense of thirst. It has been proven that water does not help you to lose weight. The girl that died from drinking too much water did so because she was in a contest and drank 2 gallons of water in a short period of time.

Yes: http://www.topix.com/forum/city/rancho-cordova-ca/TTSIPMFVJNHVE0QSE

Please read the ingredients of the "lean C. and Healthy C." You could find so, so, so many other natural things to eat.

As for the water, 1. Ingesting more water than you need can increase your total blood volume. And since your blood volume exists within a closed system - your blood circulatory system - needlessly increasing your blood volume on a regular basis puts unnecessary burden on your heart and blood vessels.
2. Your kidneys must work overtime to filter excess water out of your blood circulatory system. Your kidneys are not the equivalent of a pair of plumbing pipes whereby the more water you flush through your kidneys, the cleaner they become; rather, the filtration system that exists in your kidneys is composed in part by a series of specialized capillary beds called glomeruli. Your glomeruli can get damaged by unnecessary wear and tear over time, and drowning your system with large amounts of water is one of many potential causes of said damage.

It's not going to be harmful in the way that you are drinking it, but actually too much water can be deadly.
This question was asked in my biology class last week.
Our professor told us that too much water can actually cause a cell to bust.
In nature everything moves from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. Too much water on the outside of the cell.
Every cell in your body needs to be balanced. Water and sodium are very important.In simple terms, When the balance is tipped i.e drinking far far too much water it causes the cell to swell and eventually burst. If this carries on through out the body and masses of cells swell and burst it can cause extreme adverse effects and even death.

Normally, the body gives warning signs long before this happens.
But, some people have still died from this.
A contest that challenged contestants to drink as much water as possible without urinating in order to win a Wii resulted in one participant's death.

yes you can drink too much water it is possible to overhydrate it's the other extreme of dehydration.. plus be careful eating too many lean cuisines and healthy choices they arent all that good they are usually loaded with sodium you should limit those to only a few times a week..

Derek O
You only need enough water to be hydrated. That will be a different amount on any given day, according to your needs. Try to aim for a pale yellow piss. If your piss is clear, that's a little too much water. If it's dark gold, that's not enough water. The 8 glasses of water a day advice is nothing but superstition.

BTW: Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice are NOT all that healthy. Real food doesn't come in a box.

Drinking too much water can be bad from you when you sweat and work out...As you lose sweat from exercising...You not only lose water but important minerals and slats from your body...which your body needs to function...By drinking only water...you fail to replace the salts and minerals in your body...Several Army Soldiers have die from this or have had serious medial problems (kidney failure...) (Water Poisoning) This is the concept behind Gatorade (This is why it is popular amoung professional sports)...Basically flavored water with surgar and salt...to replace that which you lost...Other drinks do the same thing ...Good Luck Be Safe

yes if you drink to much it can be fatal but you haveta drink a rediculous amount i dont think you have anything to worry about

Yes.. here's a link to help... http://www.bloggernews.net/117854

Yes, too much water is bad considering you chug 5 gallons at once.

yes it is my doctor says too much water can overload your kidneys

People have died from drinking too much water in a short period if time.

Chris B
you would have to drink gallons upon gallons to die from water


gary h
Drinking water is just fine for you, just don't drink more than you can hold, you can actually drown your body and die.

too much can be fatal.
you could drown your insides.

Jen J
there was a contest on a radio station i think last year matter of fact, a woman drank a ridiculous amount of water in a very short amount of time and died. apparently you can wash the vital minerals and nutrients out of your blood stream if your not careful and you do something silly like that. i think that is also why it is not recommended that you drink distilled water.

drink lots of water, just not all at once take time intervals

You can kill yourself by drinking too much water.
Called water toxicity it occurs when you drink faster than your body can get rid of it and your brain swells.

Of course, you'd need to drink about 2 gallons in 1/2 hour.

You can drink a fair bit, but yes you can have too much. You will have to check, according to your weight and BMI, what the max for you would be.


Have you ever heard the saying, "too much of anything is never a good thing?"

Everything in moderation, my friend.
