Everyone wants to look great. But for some people, looking absolutely lean, rock-hard, and highly vascular is essential; it's their livelihood. That's why, whenever top models, celebrities, or athletes gather, a favorite topic of conversation is water weight and how to safely and efficiently get rid of it. Water weight is Enemy #1 for anyone within range of a spotlight or camera lens.
Top fitness models and bodybuilders know that simply taking any off-the-shelf diuretic is not the answer. There are too many risks involved.
"People don't recognize how fine the line is when you're trying to control and reduce water weight," says
Remy Feniello, a high-profile model who has appeared on the cover of numerous national publications.
"An inefficient or poorly formulated diuretic will make even the best physique look puffy and flat. On the other hand, you don't want to get too parched and dried out. Ideally, what you're hoping to accomplish with a definition formula is sharply etched, highly defined muscle volume. You want to get rid of that layer of water underneath the skin, that's hiding muscle fiber and striation, while keeping the muscle volume itself intact. To attain that, you need just a little intracellular water to push muscle up and achieve that look. It's a very tricky, delicate balance."
