Since starting to drink water, the correct amount every single day starting last Sunday (we are in week 1!) I have read a lot around the topic of water. Water goes in and water goes out so natually, I'm going to discuss it "at the other end..."
Starting with urine colour.
Below is a chart which indicates that urine should be straw coloured, and not yellow or dark.
Compare yours - do you need to drink more water? It is healthy to check each time and make a mental note if you need to drink more. <Not only make a mental note, but actually drink more, too!>
We should be visiting the loo once in every 2 hours if our water systems are flowing properly with a straw colour to the urine. Make time for this in your work day especially.
Next, onto stools. Using the Bristol Stool Scale, I found a lovely explanation of the different types of stool below:
I am focussing on the Type I and II stools because these are the dehydrated ones which have been in the colon far too long.
In an ideal situation, a colon cleanse in the form of colon hydrotherapy would be best in order to keep the colon hydrated.
We are aiming for a Type 4 stool which is like a sausage or snake and easy to pass.
So, that's my discussion on excretion for a day - pop over and leave some comments on my Facebook Page if you wish!
