You know why you have to get up to pee soon after you lie down? During the day, water collects in your legs and feet as you stand and sit. As soon as you lie flat (recliner won’t do it) then the excess fluid drains into your kidneys. I can lose 3 lbs overnight. If you don’t lie flat for 4-8 hours every 24 (recliner won’t do it), you’re not giving your kidneys enough time to do their work. I have an agreement with my liver and kidneys. I don’t do anything to tick them off and vice versa. So far, so good.
