Water pills, also known as diuretics, are one of the most popular types of non-prescription diet pills. Dieters like them because they offer quick results because they force the body to decrease the amount of water it is retaining. Essentially, these pills make you urinate more frequently, helping to reduce bloat and water weight.
Seeing the lower number on the scale and a slimmer tummy is highly appealing, but water pills are not a long-term weight loss solution and they’re not always safe to take, either.
With that in mind, here are four facts about water pills that are important to know if your plan is to make them a part of your weight management strategy.

If there’s one thing that we’ve all heard so much that we just can’t stand it anymore, but that the majority of us still haven’t actually taken to heart, it’s that we need to drink more water every day. The average person knows that they should be drinking water to achieve better health, an improved appearance, and easier weight loss, and yet that same average person will not meet the minimum recommended amount of water most days of the week. In fact, the majority of the time, they won’t. This significantly hinders diet pill success.
