      i have never drank more than i need, the body has a wonderful mechanism of requesting more fluid intake, they call it thirst.

      not thirsty? i dont drink. never done me no harm.

      5l a day is daft IMO and many may disagree with me here, water is vital granted, but the body is designed in such a way that it will let you know what it wants...for this reason ive never forced fluids down. (bar the odd night out lol)

      if your thirsty for 5l a day then thats fine.....

      my view on the subject.

      Well i do it to ensure i stay fully hydrated and also believed that it helps with fat loss as it make you feel full when you drink a lot and also the calories expended to process the water etc

      Was also drinking more to reduce water retention between skin and muscle as they say that drinking lots of water is the best diuretic.

      I usually get through 2-3 litres in the gym.....

      but I sweat like nobody else. My pee is rarely clear.

      Drink if you're thirsty if you feel sick from drinking too much water stop. Its not rocket science. Its quite well known you can over dose on water if you go to the point of insanity. You can drink 12 litres a day but you would have to be in the Sahara shifting some massive loads and expelling a LOT of energy. In a dull climate like ours with minimum physical excersions 2-3 litres is ample. Its all relative to enviroment and what your body is doing.

      I get through about 3-4L a day, **** is usually fairly clear, very light yellow, that's what I go off.

      If your urine is a dark yellow, then drink more.

      Most things are 'dangerous' in excess.
