How many times a day do you hit the can? I used to drink around 2 gallons a day and was always going back and forth to the toilet.

Damn, I can't imagine three gals a day! Shiaat, I'd have to wake up three times during the night to finish the job. I'm good for a gallon. Plus I drink 4-5 cups of coffee a day which keeps me runnin.

During contest prep I'd hit the bathroom 18+ times a day, of course, this was during the sodium loading stage.

Anyway, if you're drinking severely too much water, depending on body composition, if electrolytes do not accompany the fluid intake, you could cause your body to go into water intoxication. The average adult can process a large amount of water in the kidney's so I'm sure that's not a problem...just a heads up.

Good amount of water in food also. Drink to keep yourself well hydrated throughout the day in my opinion.

My 2cc. Find what fits best for you.
