Slow down on the water intake. Too much of anything is bad :D

That's what water does. 2 gallons of water seems like an awful lot! You might be losing/diluting essential electrolytes. You might want drink some GatorAde to replace them.

Can water harm your body?
There have been plenty of discussions about the negative effects of not drinking enough water. Dehydration can cause decreased endurance during exercise, decreased mental functioning, as well as a variety of other symptoms. However, there is another adverse water-related condition, which is actually the opposite of dehydration: hyperhydration or “water intoxication.” Hyperhydration occurs when you drink excessive amounts of water.

What happens during hyperhydration?
When you “hyperhydrate,” you can get a condition called hyponatremia. With hyponatremia, water dilutes the sodium in your bloodstream. This condition can be very dangerous because sodium plays a major role in the fluid balance of cells. Symptoms of hyponatermia may be mild and can include bloating, nausea, headaches, and vomiting. More severe symptoms can include coma, brain swelling, respiratory arrest, and death.

How much water should you drink?
That’s not an easy question to answer. No one has exactly the same hydration needs. The old adage of drinking eight 8-ounce glasses is one way to approach your daily requirement. However, use this rule as a guideline because there isn’t much scientific evidence to support it. Another approach is to balance your water intake with how much you lose. For example, the average person’s urine volume is approximately 1.5 liters per day. Add to that amount a second liter, which is used up by metabolism to perform basic functions such as breathing and sweating.

In certain situations it is OK to hyperhydrate, such as prior to participating in sports activities or in warmer temperatures when your excessive sweating will balance out your increased intake.

Overall, most people drink enough water to suit their needs and should not worry about how much water they are drinking everyday.


Dont feel so bad about it. I've been drinking about 5-6 liters a day to stay hydrated and I've constantly had to go to the bathroom (not trying to exaggerate). But this is very good for your body. I think it helps to flush out all the toxins in your body

what goes in must come out
i drink a lot of water per day, but not quite as much as you
its very good for you
but i would cut it down a little, you can drink too much

I don't ge the point, but it's a good thing to drink lots of water and it would seem normal that the waste products would come out. Sounds normal to me.

You might have Sugar diabetes. When your glucose get around 200-550 you get cotton mouth. Just like I got now because my latest glucose reading was 304. I should be down around 105.

Really, that is fascinating. But I fail to see what the question is.
