    Whats the fastest way to lose retained water?

    Is it just drink a lot of water (if so, how much) or is there a supplement that aids this?



    Also, curiously, do these water flavor packets from Crystal Light hurt that much? My local water tastes terrible!

    Hey,

    Drinking enough water is the best treatment for fluid retention. When the body gets less water,it perceives this as a threat to survival and begins to hold on to every drop. Water is stored in extracellular spaces (outside the cell). This shows up as swollen feet, legs and hands.

    Diuretics offer a temporary solution at best. They force out stored water along with some essential nutrients. Again, the body perceives a threat and will replace the lost water at the first opportunity. Thus, the condition quickly returns.

    The best way to overcome the problem of water retention is to give your body what it needs -- plenty of water. Only then will stored water be released.

    Have a good one.

    Is there any formula to use to see how much water I need? Because I drink about 1.6 gallons a day and play basketball, and lift weights and sweat profusely. The thing is, I still retain a ton of water. Do I need to drink more water?

    I think thats a good amount of water...

    Hows your sodium intake?

    And also, the cardio / sauna suit ideas are good =P

    If I go a week or two without heavy cardio - I'll usually end the week with an intense cardio session before a weigh in the next morning.

    Just make sure not to dehydrate yourself or push yourself too hard that you pass out with that sauna suit.

    I have a tincture of dandelion that I get from the health food store, it is a great for water retention. I don't use it for that ( I have a funked up stomach after having the gall bladder removed) but, as a side effect I know it is great for water bloat.
    We have the power to accomplish anything, it's called our mind.

    I watch the Food Network for porn.

    Make sure your potassium levels are in sync with your sodium levels. If sodium is too high, and you don't have enough potassium - you'll retain. High sodium isn't as bad as it is made out to be, so long as potassium is up there as well.

    lower carb intake and deplete your body of glycogen. the more carbs your body holds the more water it will hold.
    **disclaimer** the above is only opinion. it contains no capitalization, too much punctuation and (most likely) includes spelling errors.
