Never Drink Water In Any Of This 3 Situation(No.1 Is Bad)

With H2O, you virtually never go wrong. It keeps us hydrated, helps us lose weight, and may even burn calories. However, as with many of your healthiest habits, more isn't always better when it comes to water. Believe it or not, there are a few times when you should not drink water.

1. When you've already had a few drinks

It's quite uncommon, yet it's possible to drink so much water that your health is compromised. If you drink too much water, you can acquire hyponatremia, a condition in which your body's natural salt balance is disrupted. Endurance athletes, for example, may be tempted to keep sipping water during (or after) a marathon, leading in cell swelling that can cause nausea, vomiting, seizures, and even death. (Learn how much water you should drink each day, as well as four other unhealthy behaviors you should avoid.)

According to integrative physician Taz Bhatia, MD, hyponatremia can be caused by disorders with the liver, kidneys, heart, or pituitary gland, as well as medicines like diuretics, antidepressants, and pain killers.

2. When your pee is clear

So, how do you tell when you've gotten your fill of water? Instead than following the traditional "eight glasses a day" norm, look in the toilet. If you see a light lemonade shade, you've reached enough hydration. If all you see in the bowl is clear pee, you should cut back on your water intake. It's time to start sipping when the yellows become darker.

3. When you ate a big meal

Drink a glass of water before a meal (or whenever you're hungry) and you'll automatically eat less because the fluid is already taking up space in your fist-sized stomach. For the same reason, drinking too much water before or after a large meal might cause pain. Bhatia adds, "Drinking additional water may make you feel even more bloated." (You'll never have to diet again with this plan that naturally retrains your fat cells to eliminate abdominal fat!)

4. When you’re doing a super-intense workout for a long period of time.

Electrolytes like potassium and salt are depleted by sweat. You'll need to replace those nutrients that aren't found in plain water if you're working up a sweat. Coconut water, which is naturally high in potassium, magnesium, sodium, and vitamin C, may be able to provide the same boost as a sugary sports drink. It's also higher in fiber and lower in calories.
