I've been on Melting point for roughly 10 days now (started 6 pills/day, now up to 8), and I notice I am holding a lot of water around my midsection & chest... is this caused by the mp? I am also taking Sesathin and I am on a 2800 Kcal/day diet. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh most definately. Most people hold 5-10lbs of water while using MP. It took me several weeks to lose most of the water retention after I came off of it. I did a very long cycle of it.

If you find any duiretics that work do tell. Caffiene doesn't, and no one's given me good feedback for dandilion yet.

I tried dandelion and uva ursi and they didn't do a damn thing.

Jodi,

was MP worth it for you? I want to give it a try, but the feedback has been very mixed. I'm always up for trying new things, I just like to be completely "sold" on a product before I do.

Yeah that's the same for me. I am using MP and LipidFX together and i am suffering with some water retention. I have been using around 3g of dandelion root per day, and i haven't really been going to the toilet anymore-it doesn't seem to have made any difference at all

If the theory of the upset to the sodium/potassium pump we have is correct, the only thing i can see helping the water retention is potassium itself. I can only see high-dose diuretics dehydrating you and causing cramping.

Taraxatum should work then Rob...it should increase K levels.

Sorry Rob. Taraxatum is dandelion. Its a K-sparing diuretic so it should have the effect of increasing K levels systemically. However, from the reports above it doesn't seem to work in this case.

Hey Robboe, Do you recall that thread on Am.com where someone said methyl-baet helped him drop water on Melting Point. I sort of dismissed it because I couldnt see how it was relate, but he sure sounded adamant about it.

I saw that post and was curious whether anyone had verified these results besides that original poster. Mechanistically it does not compute for me.
