    Default in one witting

    What does this "witting" mean? Dicitinaries say "knowing, aware, etc" for this, so I can't grasp the meaning, it might be a typo.

    15)...Scientist suggest that people take in 1,600 milliliters of water each day. But don't drink all of that water in one witting. If you do, your kidneys will have to work much harder to eiminate it.

    You're absolutely right: it's a typo!
    What they almost certainly meant to write was sitting!

    Thanks, so does "in one sitting" mean "a time of doing something" or "a time when a meal is served" here?

    At one time.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
