I fasted on juices, I drank water, water, water, I ate only fruit vegetables and lean white meat, I tried going the other way and having a glass of wine before bed
....thought I'd try everything. It made no difference if I drank caffeine, or didn't drink caffeine.....ate chocolates or didn't eat chocolates!
OK nothing worked. My body was determined to sweat, and sweat it did. I was always washing clothes, washing my hair, washing bedding.
