How much water is too much? How little is too little?

I have consistently (for the last month) drank 100+ ozs of water A DAY, and my mouth still feels completely dry all the time.

How much is too much in regards to flushing the good nutrients out of the body?

All the multivitamins and health specialists I know say at least 2 litres of water a day... but that would seem almost silly to me as I always feel thirsty, and sports drinks are too syruppy so I need to drink more water when I have a bottle of gatorade or powerade, etc.

Is tehre a better time of day to drink the bulk of your water consumption? How spread out does the consumption need to be?

Thanks for your help!

I think it is pretty normal to consume 1 - 2 gallons a day and possibly a little more on hard cardio days

I usually get at least 1.5 gallons in
