    When I wake up in the morning for some reason I am very dehydrated, maybe because (wait for it..) I dont drink enough water..


    Anyway


    My question to you is...

    What's the best thing to drink before bed if you worked out hard that day?

    Or better yet, what do you drink before you go to bed to make sure your body is doing it's job right and you wake up feeling alright?

    If I drink water before bed, I always wake up in the middle of the night having to piss.

    Ummm....it's water. Drink it all day long every day of your life. If you pee in the middle of the night, don't drink anything an hour before you go to bed.

    An hour doesn't cut it for me. I have to curtail my water intake at least 2 if not 3 hours before bed.:hs:

    I have to drink right before I got to sleep. I cannot handle the feeling of being thirsty. I have to pee like a mofo though when I wake up, but RARELY wake up in the middle of the night.

    you shouldn't just be drinking water before bed, you should be drinking a lot of it throughout the day. I try not to drink more than 16oz of water within an hour or two of sleeping lately just because it's nice when I wake up and don't have an ache in my bladder. I just drink a lot more throughout the day and I'm fine :dunno:

    You vary your water intake on purpose?

    Just curious....how do you determine the amount you are drinking. Im guessing you drink more on lifting days and drink less on higher carb days... :dunno:

    I always drink water like a fish, even when I wake up at night to take a piss, I get a drink of water or crystal light.

    I guess I'm the only one that drinks like 5 times during the night? I sometimes drink 2 liters in a night.

    i just sit down so i don't have to aim or open my eyes... I feel like I'm in one of the first scenes of Hot Fuzz where the dude is walking all zombified to the store and doesn't notice everything is fucked up...:rofl:

    I just drink all day and even at night. Minutes before I sleep. I sleep with water next to me. Why is everyone all butthurt having to wake up to piss? I think it's awesome. I wake up, walk to the bathroom and piss all over the walls because I dont want to turn the lights on. Then walk back to my warm bed thankful I dont have to get up yet and sleep some more.

    Interrupts your continuous sleep and you get a lower quality sleep.
