so i notice pretty much every morning for the last couple weeks that i am starting to get a couple veins showing up in my forearms, as i am new to building i do expect this and find it as kind of a motivater since it shows me i have more muscle and less fat than before. but everyday when i go to work i drink a bunch of water and some green tea in the morning. after about 20 oz. of water my veins all but dissapear. this post is a little random i know, but i was just interested if anyone else noticed any nutrition related changes in their body that were almost immediate like this.

Water actually will make veins appear better and more prominant. The Blood lab always tells my mom to drink alot of water before a test so they can find a vein.

this has to do with how the water is partitioned IM or sub-q (right below your skin)...it's a ration of sodium to potassium (u want it close to 50 - 50) I think...

bodybuilders will take diuretics before a contest to lose all sub quaternions water retention
