    Talking Can you drink water too fast?

    I drink anywhere from 64 ounces of water a day to 3 liters sometimes. I drink water constantly. But the only way I can drink water is if I drink it fairly fast. Most of the time I drink a 20 ounce glass or bottle of water in under five minutes. My question is, am I drinking it too fast? I eat a fairly good meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I drink about 20 ounces before each meal (force of habbit) and through out the day. I read some where a few days ago that if you drink water too fast, your body doesn't absorb it and it basically goes straight through your body. Anyone have any suggestions. It's hard for me to drink water slow, because I don't care for water in the first place. But I drink it for nutrition reasons obviously.

    Thanks,
    Escared

    I would think you are probably drinking it too fast. It is probably going straight to your bladder and I've also heard its better to sip water rather than chug for that very reason. Congrats on getting all that water down everyday though!

    Thanks! I figured I was drinking it too fast. But when I first started I hated water, not just hated it. But it was hard to drink it, almost made me gag. lol But I am doing much better. Today I drank about 8 20 ounce bottles. I drink them steady but not near as fast. And yes it goes straight to the bladder. lol Poor me! But now it's much better. I drink them through out the day starting when I get up, around 2 a.m.
