<< OK, this may be a little off endurance related, but since it is a rider
issue here goes. I started taking a glucosamine sulfate/chondroitin sulfate
complex 550mg/6x's a day, I feel a little difference already in the amount
of stiffness I usally suffer. The problem is that I am also on a diet and
having already lost 25 lbs and don't really want to take anything that makes
me put weight back on. Nothing has changed in my diet except the complex I
am taking and I gained 3 lbs, so my question is since this combination
increases synovial fluids in our joints, does that mean it is a water
retainer by increasing fluid retention in our whole body's? >>

Cheryl, the GAGs you're taking are not the weight culprit. Look around for
another cause.
