    last night before i went to bed i weighed in at 183lbs. I was feeling particularly bloated and looking a little soft. I took a nice healthy piss before going to bed, and i remember having to get up 2-3 times during the night to piss again. Finally, when i got up, i took ANOTHER big piss, and weighed in at 177lbs. This morning i look hard and lean.

    this has been happening to me a lot lately (the getting up multiple times to piss) ... just wondering what some possible causes are?

    no and no, but i have changed my diet in the past couple of weeks. I'd been cutting for 3 months and at the end was down to around 1600 cals a day. Over the past couple weeks i've raised it back up...try to take a break for a bit and eat around maintenance...same foods as before just more of them. my diet mostly consists of egg whites, chicken, protein powder, broccoli, peanut butter, and an occasional banana.

    i'm not really sure about sodium, but i don't think i'm getting much more than i have been over the past three months. my carbs are up though, i was under 100 / day and now i'm getting around 150.


    another possibility is that i just never really noticed before...i'm probably around 8% maybe even less right now...i've never been this lean before so i'm not used to noticing things like holding extra water. but that still doesn't explain the having to get up to piss 3 times :confused:

    Drinking more during the day? Do you skew more of your calories/liquids towards the afternoon/evening?

    yes i think i do tend to do that. i also generally work out pretty late, and i always drink about 24oz of xtend while lifting + another 24oz or so of water while doing cardio...and then i'll have water when i get home...and my bedtime shake...so i am consuming lots of liquids pretty late at night.

    I have the same problem, which mainly leads to me going to the bathroom all the time late at night.

    I'm trying to drink more during the morning hours, so i don't have to drink so much at night

    i actually took a bunch of new pics this weekend, in good sunny outdoor lighting, hitting a bunch of different poses :mamoru: and they came out good but they are all on my buddies camera and i haven't gotten them yet.

    this is the only new pic have for now, drunk (for the first time in 3 months) and i think i just turned around and half-flexed ... when i get the others i'll post them

    he's lean as shit and works his ass off but he'll even tell you that he's only concerned with how he looks to girls :greddy: could care less about strength, doesn't work legs (ever), that kind of thing :)
