30 Bananas a Day!

I think sometimes I have a tendency to be extreme with certain pieces of good advice, like "making sure to drink enough water". I have been drinking a minimum of 64 ounces a day for the past couple of months and recently  attempted to double that, thinking more is better. What I think I've realized is that there is a such thing as "too much of a good thing", and that drinking all this water is not helping my salt cravings at all. I read about water toxicity and learned that drinking water in excess will cause electrolyte imbalance. Since lfrv is naturally low in sodium, its understandable that I might more easily experience electrolyte imbalance when over-consuming water and as a result start trying to cancel out one extreme (excess water) with another (salt). I'm sure most people already knew this, but I felt the need to share in case anyone else could benefit.  Balance is the priority and I have to remember that as I continue improving my lifestyle and health. Drinking 48-64 ounces of water per day is more appropriate for my activity level and I hope I notice a decrease in salt cravings. I also plan to eat a head of celery per day for the next few days, just to make sure I meet 100% recommended daily value for sodium and see how that influences the salt cravings.

@ fortitude thanks for the comment, It is helpful to know that you drink 64 ounces of water on low activity days and up to a gallon with excercise. I think I should be shooting for a little less than that since I am smaller...
