    Hey everyone, below is advice from a naturopathic doctor, I have decreased my fluid intake so that I never pee clear, but I’m wondering now if this could be causing water retention? What are your thoughts?

    Clear it out: If your urine is bright yellow it’s an easy sign that you need to up your water intake.Your kidneys flush waste from the blood and without enough water they can’t do their job very well. The human body is also extremely good at preserving water if you don’t drink enough (and in turn, your rings may not fit at the end of the day). Herbal teas that have a blend of goldenrod, dandelion leaf and parsley will help get your bladder going. In turn, some veggies such as celery stalks and cucumbers are great natural diuretics. If you enjoy two cups of water before each meal and snack you will most likely meet your water goal, and you may be surprised to find that you look and feel slimmer when fully hydrated.
