Your question was: Drinking too much water on Nutrisystem?.
Thanks for the info but I don't think that it will stop me from losing weight according to the article. It just seems to say to drink it over time which I do..
Well.. at 12 glasses of water a day, that's not too extreme at all..
Some people do tend to go overboard, and end up flushing their systems to the point where they need to see a doctor..
You're doing well with 12... I am still fighting most days to get 8!..
Well yes, you do want to avoid water toxicity and 100oz is fine. You would have to drink waaaaayyyyyyy more than that to get there. I can sometimes mark off all of the water glasses in the chart! usually I'm around 144oz though...
I have trouble getting the 64 oz of water down on days that I don't go to the gym. When I work out I drink at least 32 oz right there. I can't imagine drinking 100 oz. WOW !!!!!..
I used to drink about 120-130oz of water a day and I flushed out all my electrolytes. be careful it is not fun!..
Drinking too much water is definitely not a good thing to do. It is possible to die from too much water. That happened about a year ago when some woman did die from doing that. How about "moderation in all things?" People like most of us have a hard time with moderation...
You do not die from drinking 150 ounces of water per day. When people die from water intoxication it is because they were either participating in a water drinking contest or doing strenuous exercise and consumed large quantities of water in a short period of time. If you have no underlying medical conditions, drinking 150 oz of water over the course of the day is not going to be a problem..
Let's also keep in mind that this is not just water, but total liquids consumed. Plenty of people who complain that they just cannot drink 8 glasses of water are drinking large quantities of other liquids - coffee, tea, soda, etc. I know people who easily consume 10 cans of soda per day, 6-8 cups (large cups 12-16 oz) of coffee, etc. so their total liquids consumed are high. If you are replacing some/all of those beverages with water, how is that a bad thing? The fact is that most people are dehydrated and don't even know it...
