It's like taking a strong diuretic

Recommended Posts

Day 8

I'm not drinking more water than usual, because I've always been a huge drinker of water. I'm staying very strictly compliant.

But I'm peeing all the time. Large amounts, not just dribbles. Woke up to pee 3 times last night.

Is this common? Will it get better? Depends?

This is just a guess, but maybe in addition to the water you usually drank, you're getting in a lot more vegetables, which tend to have water in them, plus less salt than you would have had if you ate much processed food before -- combined, those two things could mean more water and less retaining of the water? Again, just a guess. 


No one here is  a doctor, but if it's not painful, I'd say wait it out for a bit longer and see what happens. If there's any pain involved, or you're just really worried about it, obviously, contact your doctor's office.
