    Drinking lots of water = frequent trips to the bathroom

    This is pretty unbelievable. Ever since i started training two weeks ago, i have never gone to the bathroom as much as i have in two weeks than when i wasnt training for like one month.

    My question is, why does water and protein shakes make you go to the bathroom a lot? Is it normal? Is there ever a point where if you drink too much water/protein it's going to be a problem?

    I don't know much, dont flame but im just curious. People are going to start thinking i have bladder problems, lol.

    Yeah water goes right through you. Because there's nothing to digest out of it. Its perfectly normal. (I dunno about the shakes, though. They should stay in there substantially longer.)

    I drink about 5 liters a day

    Yes i do take creatine before and after my workouts

    The shakes are fine i just got mixed up but it's just the water i guess.

    13 everyday like clockwork or is that just a rough estimate or average

    Lenny: Pfft, forget it, Homer. While it has been established that eggs contain cholesterol, it has not yet been proven conclusively that they actually raise the level of serum cholesterol in the human
    blood stream.

    On days I work out it's from 10 to 15 times a day. On non work out days it's like 8-10.

    It's worse when you are a student and you have to in between classes, because your teachers wont let you go during class.

    After a workout I need to stay home for the next hour cause I go 5 times or more.
    What this means is that when we drop a ball and it falls to the ground, it wasn't the ball that moved (down to the ground), but the ground that moved (up to the ball)
