I'm sorry I don't have any great ideas, just wanted you to know you're not alone. It hits me every once in a while - haven't been able to connect it with any particular foods or anything. All I know is I was out to dinner with my husband tonight, and and all I could think of was how much I wanted to just get home and tear off my pants! (And not in a way he'd enjoy!) It drives me nuts too.

Re: bloating and water retension

I learned a really good remedy for this and it works for me. I read about it in Prevention magazine almost a year ago and have been doing it ever since. You drink a quarter cup of cranberry juice every day, and within 3 days your bloating will be gone and will stay gone. You just have to drink it every day. It works!! What I do is mix it with my cold water in my water bottle and drink it during the day. I sometimes have more than the recommended quarter cup per day, but it doesn't matter. That way I get my water that I should drink and the cranberry juice adds flavor to it.

Re: bloating and water retension

My remedy is similar to beautyqueen's. I drink 56 oz of water mixed with 8 oz UNSWEETENED cranberry juice daily. For a technical view of how this works check out the Fat Flush Plan by Ann Louise Gittleman.

Re: bloating and water retension

Interesting....do those cranberry pills taken with lots of water work as well, or must it be cranberry juice?

Re: bloating and water retension

Hi,

I've seen the cranberry juice concentrate at health food stores - the man there told me if I took a quarter cup of that it would work - it's so strong though, you'd have to mix it with water. I don't like cranberries though.

Re: bloating and water retension

I wouldn't use the concentrate, thats way too much. Just buy the Ocean Spray Lite or unsweetened at the grocery store and mix 1/4 cup with water.
