Im 18yo male. I drink 4-5 litres water a day. Is it healthy?

Why ??????: Your body gets fluid value from many things you eat so any focus on reaching such a goal is odd. If you are urinating more often than every 6 hours, your habit has pushed your kidneys to dilute the urine to the point you pee it off as fast as you drink it. If your kidneys are healthy they can likely handle the load, but I'd back off. I see the same behavior in 2-3 yo kids. ...Read more

Is it healthy to drink "vitamin water Zero XXX"?

Is it healthy to drink "vitamin water Zero XXX"?

Reasonable choice: Vitamin water zero XXX is sweetened with erythritol and stevia, which are relatively safe non-caloric sweeteners, and also has vitamin C, potassium and some B vitamins. I think the best drinks are pure water and organic teas but if you are craving an occasional sweet drink this is a reasonably healthy choice. ...Read more

What is causing kidney stones? They're pure Calcium Oxylate,but I rarely drink milk, eat ice cream,yogurt,cheese & drink 8-10 lg bottles of H2O daily.

Oxalate is the key: Oxalate is the nidus that allows calcium to form on it. Oxalate often increases specifically if you don't have ENOUGH calcium in your diet. Work on a low oxalate diet but more importantly - Go to A4M.com and use the member locator button to find an anti-aging doc in your area to evaluate you metabolically and get this fixed or you'll become a "stone factory" and suffer over a lifetime.

Thanks

Depends: It depends on what else you are eating and drinking. For example, if you eat fruits or drink other beverages (both are mostly water), pure water intake of 0.5L could be adequate. Please consult your primary care doctor regarding your diet and fluid intake. ...Read more

I heard people say don't drink too much 3 in1coffee mix everyday, why?

I heard people say don't drink too much 3 in1coffee mix everyday, why?

In moderation: Three in one coffee mix has instant coffee, sugar, and creamer together. The sugar and creamer provide extra calories that you cannot control because they are pre-mixed. So you may gain extra weight from drinking too much. Too much coffee can cause your heart to race and increase your blood pressure. ...Read more

I wrkout. I eat 'whey protien' supplemnt apart from healthydiet. Also I eat 1 calcium n 'centrum(vitamin)' tablets/day. I wantd 2 ask weathr its fine?

Depends: Whey protein is dairy based so if you are lactose intolerant it can cause bloating and no real change. Protein supplements can help to increase muscle mass when building. Choices are chia, maca, pea, whey, hemp (gluten), brown rice. Aim for at least 0.5gram/pound with lots of water. Eat every 3hours, protein, exercise and also add Amino Acids to help build muscle. ...Read more

Is eating fresh water fish wiser than  eating salt water fish becoz of  its low sodium content, when u want 2 increase protein intake for bodybuilding?

NOT really: Sodium content of saltwaterr fish vs. Fish water fish is apron. Equal. Shellfish ( clam, oysters) and crucateans (crabs, shrimp lobsters) has 3-4 x the sodium per dry weight. Unless the fish is pickled (like herring) or actually slated there should be not restriction in a weight builders diet. ...Read more

Are whey protein isolate powders safe to drink if I drink lots of water with it? 1.4 liters - 2 liters a day of water, 1 protein shake after gym.

Are whey protein isolate powders safe to drink if I drink lots of water with it? 
1.4 liters - 2 liters a day of water, 1 protein shake after gym.

Probably.: Protein shakes can be problematic for people with kidney problems or who don't stay well hydrated. So long as your urine is light in color or clear, and you tolerate the drink (no gut symptoms of allergy or intolerance), it's unlikely to harm you. Be careful of calorie content in your shake, though; some are surprisingly high in unnecessary sugars. ...Read more

I know it's not good. Drink diet pop all day. But Y would my labs show LOW sodium (129) low bun/creatine ratio? I drink lot of sodium?? Neuro confused

Confusing : Hard to say. Unless you are drinking excessive amounts of soda and water it shouldn't drop your sodium. Your nephrologist should be able to determine the source of the low sodium. ...Read more

How much coffee is too much? I probably drink about 36 oz a day. I also drink 4-5 liters of water a day. Doesn't bother me, but want to be healthy.

How much coffee is too much? I probably drink   about 36 oz  a day. I also drink 4-5 liters of water a day. Doesn't bother me, but want to be healthy.

Two to three: The best amount of caffeine to have is about 300 mg or less per day. This equates to about 2-3 cups, depending on how strong they are. Drinking more is not unsafe per se, but you won't get any additional alertness, and the diuretic effects will make you urinate frequently. Hope this helps! ...Read more
