Restrict salt use: Instead of fasting I would recommend restricting your salt intake to reduce water weight. Actually when people have a high blood pressure. The first course of act that a physician takes is to prescribe a diet with less salt. The western diet is extremely high in salt content. I would recommend only taking in a max of 1500 mg of salt. Salt is also called sodium. You can check sodium on labels ...Read more
Impossible to know.: It's difficult to know what percentage of the pounds you're losing are water weight. If you're using a sweat suit, you could try collecting the sweat and other fluids you excrete after a workout and measure it that way (although it wouldn't be too fun). There are scales also that measure body fat and water percentage that you can get. Remember that losing water weight is always temporary! ...Read more
A bad illness...: A normal lean person doesn't have 5 kg of water to lose. "water is life", as the saying goes.

Nope.: Contrary to what many people believe, diuretics actually remove excess salt (sodium and chloride) from the body via the kidneys into the urine. They are intended to be used for medical conditions where excess salt builds up in the body and not to "lose water weight". If diuretics are used inappropriately they can actually lead to potentially life threatening electrolyte disorders. ...Read more
Nope. Water helps you flush out toxins. Weight loss failure usually represents too many calories, too much sugar or carbohydrates or not enough physical activity.

Total calories 1500 to 1800
exercise should be with hr of 130 for at least 20 minutes five times per week. ...Read more

Yes.: Especially if drunk before and with a meal. It fills you, and you eat less. Also, there may be some truth that your body must boost metabolism, if you drink "cold, " water. This is controversial, but the first statement is not. However, we all should drink two quarts per day! And it will help a diet. This question is the easiest nutritional support advice I can give! ...Read more
Fills & Chills!: Drink a glass of cold water before eating. This will provide some satiation, and the cool water will decrease (short term) motility of your stomach.
