It's really frustrating, I'm 1lb heavier just by laying in

Customer Question

It's really frustrating, I'm 1lb heavier just by laying in bed. That's now 1lb a day. Is it safe to exercise with a Potassium of 3.1?

Please do not weight yourself so frequently. All humans have weight change (called diurnal variation) in 24 hours. So we may weight more in afternoon and evening and less in morning. This variation is around 2-3 pounds a day. One should not bother at all about it as this is a spontaneous change in the body due to body's physiological hormones.

It is privilege assisting you.
