I have a big question about liquids. They always say to take your body wait, divide by 2, and drink that many fluid ounces each day. I, however, am somewhat overweight. I tend to sweat. A LOT! I have heard of various alterations to the prior equation adding and such what you sweat off. Unfortunetaly, I dont really know how much I sweat, and when I come home from a long ride or a run, I am really really thirsty. If I drink until comfortable, how at danger am I off over hydrating. You occasionally hear horror stories of amateur endurance athletes dying of overhydration. How at risk am I?
How much is a good amount to drink?
I am 6 foot 3 (190 cm) and weight about 190 pounds (86 kilos). I am also 17.
How much is too much, and how much is too little? What about my thirst?
thanks a heap
