Ok so heres the deal. I have been peeing like ever 2 hours around the clock for a while now.. like 2 months. I am wondering if it is just an effect of the 811 diet or not. For a while I had concluded that it was. But now I am thinking that maybe it is tied into my sodium intake. Since I am no longer eating any overt sources of sodium.. aka salt I was wondering if maybe my body is adjusting to these new lower levels of over all salt. I have been totally raw since the beginning of this year and trying to transition to 811 during that time. Ever since the end of September I have been pretty much 811 with a few occasions where I would eat a lot of nuts.
So where I am at is wondering if any of you have had experience with this issue. Alot of times my bladder isn't totally full but still I have the sensation I need to pee so I do. Its a little annoying.
I have been downing tomatoes like crazy.. at least a pound or 2 a day for a few weeks now, figuring they would be a good source of sodium.. but now I am going to start adding celery in and see how that goes. Also as of late.. with citrus here (woot Florida!!!) my intake of water has increased. But anyways back onto the celery.. I've never really eaten it, but I think for the next week or so I am going to start adding more into my diet. Also since the weather is cooler I don't sweat near as much as I was during summer.
Ah so anouther question is.. is it possible for my sodium levels to be too low and for my body to need to expell all the extra water.. causing me to pee more frequently then I would if I start adding in more sodium? I remember hearing somewhere that sodium causes one to retain water.. I wouldn't mind that.. just a bit to where I dont go pee ever hour or so ( I can go 15+ a day easy).
Can anyone relate? <3 ya!
