Diuretics/Pre-comp

What are people thoughts on using diuretics pre-comp. Such as a dandelion root product or something else.

If you are already restricting water coming into the comp would this be beneficial.

Or would you only use it if you feel like you are holding too much water the night before?

I don’t risk diuretics personally. IF you manipulate your water, sodium, and potassium intake you will get plenty of a diuretic effect without chancing making a mistake and ending up holding water. Thats just my opinion.
