Nope, I don't think there's anything aside from lots of water that will help. I know there's lots of detox stuff out there.. but I think drinking water is the best and safest thing to do. Why don't you try to avoid fats for a couple of weeks and see if that helps. High fiber and protien is a good way to go. Try to avoid the gluten stuff, too.
Are you taking any vitamins??? You'll need to if you're drinking extra water .. and take potasium. When you drink a lot of water you'll lose potasium quickly and it can cause lots of cramping in your muscles.
I'm so proud of you .. 1 hour a day!!! Wow!!! I wish I could get a treadmill. Maybe we'll look on Craig's List or something.
Hugs 4 now..

Hi Grailhunter - you provided valuable info and great advice - and then you made me giggle
The best kind of post! Thanks -

I would do both... suppliments and through food. There's lots of potasium in lots of foods aside from bananas. Believe it or not, canned tomatoes have a lot of potasium and so do potatoes. Potasium really helps with muscle cramps.
LOL, if you hear the treadmill turn on by itself.. it's only me.. sneaking in and using it. JK .. I'm gonna get me one one of these days. I really think it would help. I'd love to go for walks at the State Park (you know the one near me..) but I'm deathly afraid of ticks.. gee I wonder why.. LOL!! So I think indoor walking might be my best bet.
Keep up the good work, Girlfriend.. again.. I'm REALLY proud of YOU!!
