Asparagus and fresh parsley! These are natural diuretics and they work wonders. I especially fresh asparagus grilled (just have to put it opposite the grill grid, lol). I like the flat leaf parsley better than the curly, much more flavor. Put it on & in everything!
Canned asparagus is great to keep on hand. It works too, but you are gaining a lot of sodium and losing the good fiber. I've been putting parsley on my sandwiches, in my salads, chopped and sprinkled on just about anything.

I have bought myself a big green container that holds water and has a little spout to keep in my frig. It helps remind me to keep drinking my 8 glasses a day. Its so much better cold than warm from the tap. It only cost $6 at walmart. The fill is on top so it doesn't leak.
Will drinking lot of water curb hunger and really promote weight loss?
A small amount of evidence says people who drink water before meals eat fewer calories but noone has really shown that drinking excessive amounts of water will make you lose weight. In fact, drinking too much water can lead to water intoxication, which can be fatal as demonstate in a Hold on to your Wee for Wii contest held by a radio station in california a couple of years ago. Stay Hydrated, yes, pale urine means you are hydrated, dark urine..you better start guzzling!!!
