LOSE WEIGHT! 3 EASY WAYS TO GET RID OF WATER RETENTION
Have you been greeted with a puffy face in the morning, stifled with stiff and swollen fingers, or do your bottoms feel mysteriously tighter than usual? Your body is probably holding in more water than it should. But don’t fret; we’re here to help!
Surprise! The quickest way to purge your body of the excess water is to hydrate yourself! It’s probably time to head down to the nearest store for a bottle of water. Coffee and fruit juice aren’t going to cut it! Your body is retaining fluids simply because you’re not hydrating yourself frequently enough. On a side note, drinking sufficient water keeps your metabolism in check.
Go easy on the salt. This usually happens when you eat too much processed foods. High salt content tell your body to dilute sodium levels by retaining water. Salt attracts water – the more sodium that goes into your body, the higher the chances of gaining water weight. You might want to think twice before loading your shopping cart with chicken nuggets again, and start piling on fresh meat, fruits and veggies instead!
Stock up on food rich in magnesium and potassium. Get your nutrition right to dispel stored water in your body. Magnesium is especially effective for women with premenstrual syndrome. So ladies, make foods like whole grains, nuts and dark leafy greens your go-to options!
On the other hand, you’re doing your kidneys a favour by getting rid of the unwanted sodium by eating potassium-rich foods, Be sure to include produce like sweet potatoes, avocados and spinach in your next shopping list!
If you think your body looks more unflattering than usual, it may very well be due to your water weight. So start following the tips above to shed the excess H2O and you will be on your way to looking your best in no time.
