    I'm boarder line diabetic and I retain a lot of fluid so much that I had to get an RX from my dr to reduce it. I like all the items on your list but celery. Thanks emoticon

    i needed this one , because of my eye problem called papillaedema ( swelling of the optic nerves) and lemon water does work, but right now im currently taking Diamox or Acetazolamide to release that fluid..

    If I can get my husband to drink the lemon water instead of the diet sierra mist and eat more celery that might be rid of his extra water.
