I woke up this morning after having a few drinks last night and felt particularly dehydrated.
Now, what I proceeded to do was drink a pint of water in, more or less, one go. I then went on to drink another pint at the same rate about 30 mins later. This resulted in me desperately needing to urinate soon after.
This made me think about the pros and cons about the speed at which I drank the water. My body obviously couldn't handle all that water in one go, so got rid of it. However, my body needed water and still did after the two pints of water. Therefore, what if I had slowly sipped the two pints of water over let's say 2 hours. Would my body have been able to use more volume of water from the amount I consumed?
In conclusion, is drinking water at a fast rate a waste of resources?
