Drinking 5 liters of water everyday.
As I read the benefits of drinking water, it was my goal to drink a lot of water everyday (as I used to drink less earlier). It's been a week since I started. Drinking water comes naturally to me. I naturally feel the urge to drink water in every 15 minutes. If not, I experience a thirst. I came across some websites which said that it is unhealthy to drink a lot of water. I drink 5 liters of water every day. I am a 16 year old girl. Is it really unhealthy or shall I continue this habit?

Excess water intake can result in low sodium level in the blood that can cause headache, nausea etc. Too low water intake is also not good. Normal water requirement would be about 2 to 2.5 litres daily. In hot summer the requirement will be more.
