    Water Retention Remedy?

    I'm about to walk over to Walgreens and get this (Aqua Ban), because this bloating is driving me insane and I'm pretty sure it's water retention. Should I bother?

    I can´t see why not. I don´t know much about diurectics though.
    I wonder if there is something natural that does the same.

    well i'm just thinking something i can get at the 24 hour drug store, since places like GNC and Nutrition Power are closed right now. I don't know if walgreens will have somethign natural...

    Dandelion root, i've read/heard is good for bloating too.

    Looks like a good product, but i'm looking for somethign I can get in the next 20 minutes or so. I'd hate to go to bed feeling like this.

    I'll keep this in mind to get for future incidents, though. Thanks!

    Walgreen's should have the Aqua Ban. Have you tried drinking more water? Should flush whatever caused the bloat out. I like kind you can get when its our Visitor's Time.

    If you stop drinking water for a while, 10 or 12 hours, it won´t give the same effect ?
    Unhealthy I know.

    Yeah I ended up buying aqua ban, which is caffeine free, but I also got Diurex, for good measure... in any case i'll take that in the morning since it has caffeine and aqua ban doesn't.

    as for drinking water - i can't possibly drink anymore. i've been chugging it like it's going out of style for the past few hours, but i just feel MORE bloated.

    well if it means I won't feel bloated in the morning, then I certainly don't mind having to get up to pee in the middle of the night. This is one of the nastiest feelings in the world...

    What on earth did you eat? Too much sodium?

    I'm dealing with holding water like a sponge today, have no clue why and it pisses me off. hehe.

    The ONLY thing I've eaten today that isn't part of my regular diet was a few spoonfuls of fat free cool whip. Everything else has been kinda the same stuff I've been eating all week - tuna, oatmeal, salad, broccoli, protein shakes, etc. This is the same stuff I've been eating for weeks, so I can only assume it has to do with me getting my period soon because if it had been caused by food, I'd have gone through this before since the food is the same...

    what i hate most about this is that my arms and my face (not to mention my belly) feel swollen and heavy...

    True. I sometimes experience it when I eat my meats before my veggies. Craig has explained it to me before, but I forgot why I am suppose to eat them the other way around.
