Hi! This is my first post! I stumbled on this forum while researching this topic and I think this seems like a great and supportive community!
A week from today I'm going to do a photo shoot, and I want to lose some bloating before then. So I'm considering taking water pills. I understand that it's to lose water weight and not fat, and I've read some of the other threads on here about the drawbacks of them, but I think they could work for me for this one-time situation.
So my questions are - what types of pills (i.e. brands) have you tried before and how have they worked for you? Also, how long before the first photo should do you think I take the pills for the best effect? Anything else I should know about taking them that can help me get the most out of them? Any other alternatives to water pills that you think could help? (I'm considering getting a colonic)
Since this is my first post, here is a little about me - I'm 32, 5'8" and 158 lbs. I've lost 17 pounds since May doing a combination of switching birth control pills, Medifast, and P90X. I live in Southern California. TIA!
