The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Dark urine vs bright urine

    I was wondering what causes to pee darker urine and some times its bright as light ?

    Does anyone have an explanation for it , im sure there are more people who have been thinking about it.

    i presume your talking about the strengh of urine [ the darker the more concentrated the urine is]
    when your fully hydrated all day, you are passing more liquid through your system, therefore its clear,and vice versa, the less you drink the more concentrated your urine is.

    i had about this in my biology test...its got to do with ADH getting released out into the body when theres a high concentration of salt in your blood. This makes the kidney take up more water from the urin. And vice versa

    Darker means there's not as much water.

    Dark is BAD. You don't want dark urine, ever.

    Gyno Rhino: hehe, you make it sound like its fatal to have dark urine

    Depends how dark it is I guess. Black urine you should start worrying about , but darkish yellow urine just means you need to drink more water. Water should be one of the most important ascpects of a BB diet. Muscles need water to grow!

    I think 7 medium glasses a day is enough for the avarage person, we also get water from alot of foods we eat.

    Eat well, drink enough, sleep enough, and I think you can prevent most problems to do with that.

    Dark Urine shouldnt be alarming unless its persistent.

    Kevin: Sorry to hear that. Your friend died from dark urine? I'm sure there was a more complex reason? Or are you joking about?
