What is the best way to lose some water weight without resorting to caffeine? I am definitely carrying some excess water right now, and I would like to get rid of it soon.

Drink a LOT of water and do cardio.

That makes sense. Does a low carb diet work too?

LOw carb diets do NOT work!!!!!!!!!!! High fat diets with insulin spikes do.

But a keto diet will help me lose water though, right?

I lost 7-8 lbs of water weight in the first 3 days of my keto, so yeah you will lose a **** load of water right away. I didn't look any more cut for it though.

Fitnessman can you explain?

Isnt keto a low carb diet? with a lot of fat... ive been dousing everything in olive oil my whole life anyway...

Also, is the linme between body burning carbs and burning fat a blurred progressive line or a sharp line, because i think i was taught its always a combination of the two (though percentages can vary), but you make it sound like its one or the other.

No Low carb diets were made popular by dr. Atkins. They do work well, but they are not intended for bodybuilders.

On a ketogenic diet we are using carbs to our advantage...Such as post work out nutrition and carb loads. Depends on your body type and goals, there are a few spins you can put on a keto to make it work even better.

Low carb diets are not good for us. High fat with carb spikes are.

in my opinion the line is sharp.

I agree with fitnessman's keto suggestion, plus more water in equals more water out. Try herbal fluid pill as well if you are preparing for an event.

yeah those herbal pills work great, go for NWB by eas, it works fast, or try Cuts II cuz they both work great for me

As long as they don't contain any caffeine (which I have no tolerance for) I want to try them.

01-14-2002, 04:52 PM
neather contain caffine and they both work AMAZING, you'll notice the effects of NWB the same day, and if you choose to use Cuts II you'll feel it probbly the next day, or same, both are good but i favor NWB....

there is this man called timothy ferriss. he is the author of the 4 hour work week... in the book he tells the story of how he used secret methods to get rid of LOTS of water weight to win a fight... he teaches his methods nowadays so if you're interested, get more information from either his book or from his blog(just google him)...

you can learn a lot from there.

he has done it before so there is noone better to learn from.

hope this helps you.

good luck!
