I'd try keto or carb cycling. Carbs will hold water on you but I don't think most notice until low BF%

The first solution would be to get LEANER.

* Using natural diuretics like dandelion root and uva ursi,
* Drink more, etc.
If you're going to use a diuretic, then CONTINUE drinking at least a galleon a day, and use them for no more than three days.

Here's cool tip a competitor showed me. Feel the fat in your stomach and if it just feels watery and like there's nothing there it is indeed water, but if it feels grainy then that is fat. Remember that there is a correlation between high cortisol levels and visceral fat gains as well.
