Can I possibly gain weight from drinking too much water? Is there anything else that's bad at all about water?

I've heard from some people that water can make you gain weight if drunk too much. I don't believe them. Is it actually true?

No not really, sometimes our bodies will temporarily retain water which can cause a couple lbs weight gain but unless you have some sort of disease state that makes you hold that water in your tissues it will go away in a day or so. Water has no calories, no fats, no carbs no nothing it is just water which is actually needed to help us lose weight as it helps flush fats from our bodies as we burn them

I have felt that way at times, but I have a water retension problem and also take high dose of diuretics. When you drink water, it should help your body empty it, getting ready to take more in. :)
