Yeah. That's a thing.
TV chef Nigella Lawson admits that she's a self-confessed "aquaholic" who can't stop drinking water.
That's a good thing though, right?
Not really, actually.
Nigella drinks about three liters of water before going to sleep at night, which doctors say can cause health risks.
Excessive water drinking actually makes you MORE thirsty. Doctors say it "could be harmful in precipitating potentially dangerous hyponatraemia," diluting the body's sodium levels.
Nigella has been warned of the dangerous effects, but she still struggles to keep her water intake down.
Doctors recommend that people should drink about six to eight glasses of water to prevent dehydration. Any more than that is considered unnecessary.
