How to Use Diurex to Lose Weight

Diurex is an over-the-counter diuretic product that can be used in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program to accelerate weight loss. Diuretics are substances that increase water elimination from the body. Diurex contains 50mg of pamabrom and is most commonly used to alleviate bloating associated with menstrual cramps. However, this product can be used to decrease water weight, which can help to give the body a leaner appearance by eliminating subcutaneous fluid. Follow a few simple guidelines to include Diurex in your weight-loss program.

Step 1

Take one Diurex capsule with a full glass of water following your first meal of the day. Make sure that you have access to a restroom as needed over the next few hours because Diurex should cause more frequent urination.

Step 2

Stay hydrated by drinking at least eight 12- to 16-oz. glasses of water throughout the day. Drink a glass of water up on waking, one or two with each meal of the day and sip from a water bottle as needed throughout the day.

Step 3

Take an additional Diurex capsule every 6 hours following your first dose. Continue drinking water and do not exceed four total capsules in a 24-hour period.

Step 4

Drink two or more 8-oz. glasses of water while working out to replace the excess fluids lost due to taking Diurex. Increasing water intake in conjunction with Diurex is not only necessary, but it will also actually accelerate your metabolism and balance your body's pH or acid/base levels.

Step 5

Time your last dose of Diurex immediately before bed to accelerate water loss while you sleep. Remember that this may cause more frequent trips to the bathroom during the night. Drink a full glass or two of water upon waking to restore hydration.
