    Cardio / 1-2 gallons of water a day should do the trick, and remember to keep your sodium level @ a fair ammount. If you restrict sodium trying to lose the water weight, your body will most likely retain water due to the lack of sodium

    Yeah, because if anything cardio would force you to LOSE water.
