Drink enough water… but not too much!

I don’t get to drink enough water and I ended up having high uric acid...

I was shocked when I found out and I thought I should drink lots of water to combat this just like my boyfriend does. He drinks about 3 to 5 gallons of water a day! Yes, that is so true! He gets to drink that much water and can’t survive with just 8 glasses a day.

At first, I thought he was so healthy because of his water drinking but I was also warned by my doctor that too much water is not good for the body as well. When you drink too much water in a short amount of time, you may actually end up being poisoned and you can even die! Yes, you can die with too much water and this news actually shocked me and I had to warn my boyfriend about it.

My doctor said that if you consume more than what your body mass requires in a short amount of time then the electrolytes in your body would drop dramatically and this may lead to confusion and the person may collapse and even die.

Fortunately, when we calculated my boyfriend’s water consumption based on his weight, he is still on the safe side but he still has to reduce his water drinking so now, he drinks less water and is so grumpy about it while I drink more water and feel so grumpy about it too!

Now, we’re both grumpy but at the end of the day, we know that we are living healthily. I guess the rule of thumb here is to take everything in moderation.
