Water, not alcohol
I started drinking lots of water a while ago, and always pee pretty clear, but it doesnt make me feel any different. I'm just as tired and uncomfortable as when I was drinking loads of soda.
@ThePandaPool , through my experience ive noticed that one change isnt really enough. Its more of a change to a healthier lifestyle that makes the biggest impact on how you feel
i do applaud you for making that one, lol its annoying when you first start and end up peeing every half hour
@ThePandaPool , keep it up man. Even if you’re not feeling it, it’s still a smart decision and a good commitment to your health!
@prxjxct, I have no intent to stop.
@tard in space, I did also add hitting a rowing machine 3 to 4 times a week, and now I'm gaining weight without eating more. Things just arent going my way.
@ThePandaPool , have you tried keeping a food/activity journal? That helped me out a lot to sort out patterns and target specific tweaks to my habits.
Personally, I found that diet was more important than exercise for me when trying to lose weight. I lost 15 pounds over a few months just from cutting out soda completely, despite basically no change in my activity.
@ThePandaPool , that’s probably because you’re gaining muscle. Muscle is more dense than fat so you’ll gain weight faster you know even if you are shedding the fat.
Also cardio is much more effective in losing fat so try running or walking more maybe?
@Prince super Vegeta , the rowing machine is damn good cardio, that also helps put focus on my abs which i kinda need with my gut.
@ThePandaPool , my bad I read that as lifting for some reason
@ThePandaPool , I was feeling tired quite a bit for a while. Then I started eating more whole-grain’s because I read that it helps your body regulate its energy. Steel rolled oatmeal or even whole-grain bread for a sandwich (in my case I went with the Pepperidge farm 15 grain whole grain oats bread) both of these seem to help quite a bit. I wasn’t tired throughout the day after I started eating whole-grain breads instead.
It takes a few days for your body to really notice the difference. But my experience has been that whole grain does help your body regulate its energy better so you don’t get tired throughout the day.
@ThePandaPool , i’ll tell you the same thing they tell gastric bypass patients. When you cut back on how much you eat you will lose weight for a while. Then your body hits a plateau where it’s not losing weight but instead it’s shrinking. At that point you should measure your size. After a couple months or so start to lose weight again assuming you stick with whatever you’re doing.
If you’re purely dieting and exercising to lose weight you will eventually hit a plateau entirely and stop losing any. Instead you’ll start building muscle. Which will in turn causes you to gain weight from the muscle.
@Seohn, I have been making sure to get my whole grains, and fiber. As stupid as it sounds, I hope it's just winter and stress that's holding me back. Also my weight staying the same wouldnt be a problem if I could see an actual difference from muscle gain, but I don't. I'm not gonna stop trying, and this is more me voicing frustration more than anything else.
@ThePandaPool , sounds like you need to add a heaping serving of Tide pod to your diet.
@ThePandaPool , winter does make it difficult to get out and be more active. Perhaps its not so much just muscle but endurance that you’re building. Pay attention to how long you can jog or whatever it is you do. Also, though the muscle may not be defined (something that requires specific exercises and is not easy to achieve for most people despite what others claim) you may also be seeing a difference in how sore you get from specific tasks. For example. Planks are an excellent exercise for building core muscles. And although you aren’t going to see a six pack from doing them. You will notice if you pay attention how you have less, or no back pain when working or doing jobs that involve leaning over. Its building muscle that odds are you wont see or really notice unless you pay attention to little things like that.
Toned and defined muscles are only built through exercises most people just don’t have time to do. Or needing good genetics. Regardless of what those workout ads claim.
@ThePandaPool , An hour a day even if its intense workout. Will likely yield little to no define muscle. The exception being of course your arms or legs. And even that depends on what exercises you do. That’s not to say you’re not building muscle. Because you’ll find that you’re able to lift heavier stuff or run longer or do more without getting tired. You just aren’t going to see the definition like most people hope for.
I know I sure didn’t. Doing exercises like that an hour a day will help. But to get that toned and defined look requires many more hours and specific workouts for specific muscle groups. Something that I myself don’t want, nor do I have time, to dedicate to it.
@Seohn, I really wish I was seeing a notable stamina increase, but I haven't. I'm sure there is a little bit of improvement, but not much. I have absolutely seen a reduction of the soreness after workout though. Even the days after I push myself extra hard I'm not hurting other than my usual arthritis in my hands. That would be the most notable improvement I have had. and I'm with you on the toning.
@ThePandaPool , yeah muscle build up takes a while. Especially as you get older. It’s easier if you’re in your early 20s or younger. When you hit your early to mid 30s or older and didn’t spend your 20s exercising. It becomes more difficult as your metabolism begins to slow down. Or so that’s what I figure in my case.
Perseverance is what it takes. I was just happy not to be sore at work as much.
Uh...if your pee is actually red, you need to go to at least your doctor RIGHT NOW. If there's blood in your pee, you kidneys are failing, and you may be dead soon if untreated.
Clear pee can also be a sign of dehydration, but it's not very common
This applies perfectly to military memes jsyk
How is it your not dead yet,?
Take a multivitamin. Then is will be yellow
John Tron:"hydration is important"
