How much is "enough water"?
What's too much for one person may be just right for another - so what works for your sister may not be good for you, and may backfire a few years later. Then it might flip back again.
While water may be boring, it's also the most important beverage you can drink. And you need to provide your body with enough food every day.
So the answer lies both internally and externally; into the bladder and into the toilet.
If your urine (pee) is yellowish or even clear, you are drinking enough water. The clearer the better. If the color is a dark yellow, or even yellow-orange, or you feel dizzy when you turn your head or stand up from sitting, you're probably dehydrated.
If your lips look and feel chapped and dry, or you have a recurring headache on your forehead, you may be dehydrated. So although you may feel like you're drinking water, remember that you can urinate up to 2 liters per day. You lose moisture at night while you sleep and also through your skin. So a lot of times you wake up feeling dehydrated.
Is there such a thing as "too much water"?
Yes, but you probably don’t feel guilty about it.
Drinking too much fluid can lead to very serious conditions such as confusion, nausea, and dizziness. According to the same researchers, in rare cases, a condition called exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) can cause death. This condition has killed more than 14 athletes since 1981! But unless you're a very active and avid athlete, drinking too much water may not be a big problem for you.
It is recommended to drink a glass of filtered, clean water every few hours. Just pay close attention to the color of your urine, as the water you drink forms the liquid carrier portion of the primary transport system that moves toxins out of the body. Adequate water can help relieve pain, reduce hunger, facilitate bowel movement, and remove toxins. So drink it now!
