One last post, before I got to bed, I promise. You'll all be begging me to shut up after this.
I just wanted to list some natural diuretic foods and beverages so folks have a handy reference to choose from, if they want to help flush out the water weight. Just remember, drink plenty of water so you don't get dehydrated not only when eating/drinking natural diuretic foods and beverages, but also to prevent constipation on this high fiber diet. I love Glaceau Smart Water- it is distilled and has electrolytes in it and tastes fabulous. I wish I could drink it all the time, but it is a bit expensive. I drink it a few times a week when I can afford it.
Anyhow, here is the list, starting with the beverages-
apple cider vinegar
veggies and fruits-
garlic (great for allergies and asthma, too)
horseradish (yummy on a roast beef sandwich!)
I can attest to cabbage being a great diuretic, only I didn't know until tonight how great it is. I had two cups of it tonight, 5.6 grams of fiber, and let's just say, I think I am in for a long night in the loo thanks to the cabbage and my fluid pill!
Good night again, I promise I am done for the night!
