Are you drinking too much water? Heather Gibbons, blogger and certified personal trainer, is exploring this question. Heather states that the symptoms of over-hydration are…constipation, kidney disease, urinary disorders, digestive disorders, degenerative bone disease, premature aging, and unstable blood pressure.

Thank God I gave up the gallon a day habit many, many years ago. First, most of my water bottles were about as sanitary as sucking up street puddles with a bendy straw; second, my bladder was wussy and cried like a girl and third, leaving water bottles to stew in the car or under my arm so that the heated bottle would brew a carcinogenic tea seemed counterproductive to my whole ‘live long and prosper’ life plan with an ‘Into The Wild’ style retirement. Though I’m not overly religious, I also had a hard time buying the statement that when you’re thirsty it’s already too late. ‘The spiritual being of your choice’ did a fine job of orchestrated endocrine systems as well as all that other complex mush of guts, how the heck would thirst – something key to our survival – be the glaring bug in our operating systems? It was all an evil conspiracy by Evian was all I could figure.

I drink a lot, but I don’t think I drink a gallon a day. And when you hit 40, you’re peeing more anyway. You might as well live in teh bathroom if you’re going to drink that much.

This confirms my long held suspicions. There’s no way that our ancestors evolved to drink a gallon of water a day… we’d have been mauled six times over by a saber toothed tiger half way into our 5th piss of the day. If the pee ain’t sorta yellow, you’re a strange sorta fellow.
