Water intake...does the time frame matter?

I know its important to keep your body hydrated and get enough water through the day, and its also a good way to avoid eating when not hungry.
But sometimes at the end of the day I realize I havent consumed enough water at all! Obviously the key is to be more persistent about it, but I was just wondering: On the eveniings that I realize I'm dehydrated, I'll drink maybe a liter and a half of water in 45 minutes...Is this harmful? or is it good that I'm rehydrating and making sure I get enough water?

The time frame is actually the most important factor in drinking too much water. The body can naturally process over 15 liters of water in the course of a day. Forcing your body to accept a large amount of water (2+ gallons/7 liters) within a short period of time (an hour or two) can be fatally dangerous to your health. Whenever you disregard your sense of thirst and strive to ingest several glasses of water a day just because you have been told that doing so is good for your health, you actually put unnecessary strain on your body.

1.5 liters probably won't do this, but you should be careful, and pay attention to your thirst. Also, just try and spread your water intake through the day.

This is info I know, but it's so good to have a reminder! When I have a daily goal, I have to learn that if I didn't meet it on any given day, it's okay to just try again the next day rather than suck down three bottles before I go to bed. Also, then I'm up peeing half the night and get no sleep. What good is that?? : )

15 liters is a lot of water, I find that 2 liters in an hour is the most I can possibly drink.

I understand that your body can only process so much at any given time but I take diuretics, high doses, and it is in the evening since that is when it works best for my body. I get so parched I can't stand it , sometimes. So I will easily drink that much, a half gallon or so just because I can't quench the thirst. I haven't noticed any negative effects. I would think each body is different but it is a curious thought.
I saw a story not too long ago where a woman was in a contest and drank so much water in a short period of time and she died from it. Now they didn't allow them to go to the bathroom either. Maybe that makes a difference I don't know.
But who would normally think that drinking water could be anything but good for you.
And then I have heard of people with kidney problems that have to ration their water.
How would you know what is too much for you? I guess that would be the question.
