I read that our kidneys can efficiently process up to 15 liters per day.
: Yes, you can drink to much water (although I am not certain on the specifics of how much is too much. But it can cause your body to flush electrolytes, vitamins and minerals out of your body leaving it possibly dangerously depleted and fatigued. Hope this helps clarify a bit
: I read a message a while back that said that there is such a thing as drinking too much water. Does anyone have any information on this? I'm a little worried because I drink anywhere from a gallon to two gallons of water per day and didn't think this could be harmful. I would never have thought this could be considered an eating disorder until I read the message. (Sorry, I don't remember who it was from.)
