    From all I've read here

    Drinking water days before the test doesn't really help flush you out since the THC is stored in fat. The best use of liquids is dilution hours before the test so you have less THC metabolites in ratio to liquid in your urine.

    THC metabolites are stored in body fat. Exercise that burns fat releases them into your bloodstream. Drinking lots of liquids speeds up their excretion through your urine.

    THC tests work on the concentration of these metabolites in your urine. The cutoff point for most test is 50 nanograms per milliliter. By diluting your urine by drinking lots of liquids, you lower the concentration by increasing the volume. You have to be careful not to over-dilute. If the sample is too pale, the specific gravity is too low, and/or the creatinine level is too low your sample can be rejected. You can fix the color by taking B-vitamin complex. You can fix the creatinine level by taking supplements.

    Flushing them out with exercise, a low-fat diet, and lots of liquids is good until a few days before your test. Then you want to stop exercising and start pigging out. When you are in fat-storing mode you stop releasing THC metabolites into your bloodstream. Keep up with the liquids to flush out those already in your blood.
