Don’t take them. 

Honestly, unless you have a medical issue causing water retention, the only thing water pills will do is deplete your natural water supply, and then you’ll be dehydrated, and you’ll drink water (or risk getting dizzy, passing out, and all sorts of other bad stuff) and then you’ll be right back where you started. 

Don’t take them.  Instead, if you want to prevent bloat, treat it at it’s source (mainly sodium).  To do that, increase your water intake to a minimum of 150oz per day.  This will help your body flush out excess sodium and other minerals & things that cause your body to hold onto water (aka bloat).  Basically, you’ll want to be  going to the bathroom every  60-90 minutes and your pee should be clear or very pale yellow (the clearer it is, the less junk your body is trying to flush out of your system).

It takes about 3 days to fully flush out your system. 

And if you want to be a little more hard core about it– adjust your diet to only eating fresh “whole” foods like fruits, veggies, lean meats, nuts & seeds, and minimallow fat dairy.

If you’re working to flush out your system with the water, and only eating the “cleanest” foods you can, your body will be able to naturally cleanse itself without any of the side effects of the fad-diet style clenses that some people try.

I second what juliette.eliza says!  Also avoid foods like cauliflower, broccoli and beans. If possible get in a few more cardio sessions too.  🙂  Good luck!!
