    When the water begins to change the electrolyte concentration in your body. Just stay saturated. I don't think 8 cups a day, not 8 and a half cups, is the "perfect" amount of water. We all have different metabolisms, do different work, live in different climates. We all need different quantity of water. Stay saturated.

    You can easily go up to 150 ounces and nothing bad will happen.

    I don't thnk there is a exact answer for you question as everyone is different. To actually be drinking too much water would be somewhat difficult to do in my opinion. Your body typically knows what it needs so if you feel thirsty drink. I think far too many people do not drink near enough water which is not good for the body at all.

    Just watch your body. If you're pee is yellow, not enough water. If your pee is clear, you're probably saturated. I take supplements that colors my urine. So I just watch to see with it turns clear.

    if you are thirsty, drink more water... there are far worse things you can do to your body than drinking too much water IMO

    Pretty certain that drinking too much water and diluting your electrolytes is only a real concern if you are exerting yourself and sweating heavily. If you are not sweating, but just drinking tons of water for the hell of it, you will just piss out the water, but it won't throw off your electrolytes much. However, if you're sweating out the water that you're drinking, then you need to supplement with electrolytes (mainly sodium and potassium) to avoid potassium-pump failure and cell rupture...then death.
