    There are a few herbals that will help. But for on-cycle water weight an AI like Erase would be most useful.

    You are bloated from increased estrogens in your body. ERASE them

    Dandelion root will help. Uva ursi is another commonly used herb. Are you looking for a product or individual ingredients? Erase will push water out. There are products specifically designed for that like MHP Xpel or Axis Labs Extract or NOW Water Out. I have a bottle.of Extract on hand for next week.

    There are foods choices to be made here. Chicken is bad, too slow of digestion. Stick with fish like tilapia and ground turkey. Lower your sodium intake and keep a gallon of water a day minimum. Carb choices matter. Simple sugara and white carve hold water. Even sweet potatoes seem to work against me there. Asparagus might be my most powerful diuretic. Coffee too.

    Another idea: get a few boxes of an herbal PMS tea. Brew five bags in half a gallon of water and add another half water to a jug for the day. In abouth three days magic happens. Only problem is I get constipated. I'm gonna try a different tea this time around.

    While Natty is correct; the methodology by which ERASE works "may" not be want you want.

    ERASE is not a "traditional" diuretic per se. This is merely a welcomed by byproduct of it's use.

    I'm sure Natty can explain this better than I can but ERASE works via estrogen/estradiol and cortisol modulating properties (with the indirect effect of diuresis; again by decreasing cort and estro levels).

    Very crude explanation: Most traditional diuretics work by directly manipulating the salt channels (increasing elimination leads to more water loss).

    I use ERASE as part of my TRT regimen and it's a great product; I just feel this tidbit of info needed to be added to this thread.

    Given the fact there are a myriad of reasons for one's bloat/water-holding; you should do your best to figure out what your reason is and adress it more directly (with the most logical supp). If in fact it is an estrogen-related issue, ERASE is top notch. If not, you are decreasing your estrogen levels for no good reason (and that does not come w/o other potential risks).

    PS: Many can effectively reduce their oedema/bloat simply by reducing carb intake; or more generally speaking- making other rather simple dietary changes as OrganicShadow eluded to above.

    Someone who is on cycle would get best results with an AI like Erase, and sounds like the guy is on cycle.

    I wouldnt recommend Erase to a PMSing girl who is bloated lol

    Good notes on the carbs...carbs and water intake in general can change how bloated you feel and appear

    I use a product called kidney cleanse by swanson vitamins.. really helps keep bloat off IMO if sodium intake is an issue.. but for hormonal related issues, you are going to need an AI.

    Although this may contradict a BB'ing diet,
    Eat ONLY PROTEIN for 1 week... This can relieve a lot of bloating issues that have the colon blocked and holding the carbs

    ^More specifically, quick digesting protein and soft,dark, green, diuretic veggies
    Fish, turkey, asparagus, spinach, brusselsprouts, avoid eggs (too much sodium), broccoli (if you respond OK)

    Also, remember that supplements accumulate conecntration in the bloomstream which will increase subcutaneous water retention. especially yohimbe.

    True. Reps!

    A good way to keep the nutrient density of the veggies of you cut out complex carbs is to lightly stir fry them in coconut oil.

    I use coconut as my source of MCTs when I don't have eggs on that day. Love the saturated fat in coconut and eggs
