    now what does "too much water" mean in terms of health? because my urine is mostly clear and i wouldn't say i drink water that excessively, i mean, around 1.5L to 2L a day, i live in a very warm, tropical country

  • CJ F

    My urine is bright yellow at times and it’s probably from my consumption of nutritional yeast. The yeast has B vitamins which are not supposed to be synthetic.

    While on the topic of color, maybe you can shed some light on my skin color. I've been eating Keto for a month now. In the past few days I've been waking up very pale and with a hint of yellowish skin. 😕

    you should explain what UTI is... or is that a common thing? I assumed later, Urinary Tract Infection, but for teaching purposes, I believe it is best to say it out the first time. It took me a minute to figure out what it might mean, making me miss the words that followed. Thank you for this concise video.

    Your videos are so helpful and informative. Could you please do another video on dry eye? In one of your videos you mentioned waking up with a corneal abrasion due to very dry eye. What did you begin doing immediately to prevent that from recurring? I am taking ox bile to better digest fats and absorb nutrients. I also consume animal foods high in vitamin and plenty of omega 3, but am still really struggling . I have a history as a high carb, low fat, fruit feaster. Even though I gave up that lifestyle (dental issues and lack of menstruation were worrying me) about two years ago I’m concerned that my current dry eye problem could be somehow connected to that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I ran my cornea into a tree branch in September and the dry eye problem seems to have prevented total healing. It still hurts daily

  • Perma Pen UK
    Perma Pen UK 2 months ago

    I suffer from POTS, and one of the symptoms is a lot of peeing. I have to drink several litres more than the average person to stave off serious dehydration and brain fog. My pee is pretty clear if I'm doing okay. What I found interesting recently, though, was that getting even slightly dehydrated seemed to dramatically reduce fat burning - from food as well as body. I'm currently fumbling my way through keto + POTS inflammation + menopausal inflammation, and happened to be regularly measuring ketos in urine. The keto score suddenly dropped right down when I got dehydrated (darker urine) and I started feeling hypoglycemic. That explains SO much of my weight/energy problems over the last decade. But, on it now!!!

    I can definitely tell you for sure I’ve had RED Urine a few months ago which freaked me out for about 30 seconds just staring at it. Then it dawned on me I ate a bunch of roasted Red Beets which was the culprit. It was Red like that the urine for several days then it went back to normal as all the effects Red Beets went out my system. And not only that, your poo 💩 will also be encapsulated in a very Reddish halo similar to the urine. That was concerning too, but eating Red Beets will indeed change your ursine color as well poo. So if that happen to you, don’t freak out, just remember what you ate.
