Natural Diuretic

1 large onion chopped
1 large 96oz can of chicken broth
1 lb potatoes (cut into approx 1 " pieces)
3 bunches or watercress (or substitute 2 10oz boxes of frozen brussel sprouts thawed and halved)
salt/pepper

in a large pot....simmer the onion in approx 1/4 cup of the chicken broth until the onion is tender and most of the liquid has evaporated then add the potatoes and the remaing chickcn broth...bring to a boil, cover let simmer for approx 15-20 min...then stir in the water cress....(brussel sprouts) cook until wilted (approx 5 min) remove the soup from the heat and let cool slightly....

in batches put the soup into a blender and puree soup till smooth...put back into pot..add salt and pepper (red pepper was nice)

makes approx 9 cups...each 1 cup =
94 calories
4g protien, 0 g fat, 0 mg chol, 20 g carbs , 3g fiber, 3g sugar

This is very easy, tastes good and filling....the watercress is supposed to aid in increasing your metabolism, and help to reduce water retention....
I'd suggest you be near a bathroom....*wink* You WILL get rid of excess water asap!

Chicken broth is mostly salt and causes water retention. Carbohydrates cause water retention too. Am I missing something?

This is exactly what I was thinking. This concoction seems very counter productive.

Yes. Dandelion Root is a great diuretic.

Here's a pretty awesome natural diuretic stack:

Dandelion Root 2g
Uva Ursi
Juniper Berry
Burdock Root 500mg

The middle two I have not take personally so I won't recommend a dosage but just do a duckduckgo search and you should come up with some baselines...

So looking at this it’s high in salt and potassium(potatos). I wouldn’t say it’s a diuretic necessarily but it will give the appearance of less water. Like I mentioned in another thread not long ago most bodybuilders are not getting enough electrolytes and deficiency can actually make you hold more water. Or at least hold water in the wrong places. Increasing sodium and potassium when deficient will move that water around. It will pull it into your muscles. Make u less bloated and muscles more full. Your body will hydrate better and regulate water better. I bet it does help the OP. Just not they way he thinks it is.

That's an interesting spin and I can't agree or disagree with you because I haven't researched it. Really though...unless you get on stage you really don't need diuretics.

In fact potassium deficiency actually causes water retention. If anyone is interested in more check out these PDFs.
