How To Stop Retaining Water
Drink plenty of water
If you would like to stop retaining water, the easiest way to solve this is by drinking more of it The reason for this is simple. Your body has a survival instinct. If you are not drinking enough, this sends a signal to your body. If it thinks water is scarce, it will begin to hang on to the supply it has. In essence, your body is building a reserve in case this shortage lasts.
While this instinct of our bodies may come in handy should an actual water shortage come to pass, in everyday life, where water is plentiful, it just causes us to carry unnecessary weight.
The problem today is that most people don't drink enough water on a daily basis. So, this survival instinct kicks in and we find ourselves bloated with extra water weight. You can actually end up carrying up to 8 pounds of water weight.
So, what's the easy answer to get rid of this water weight? Just drink more water. You'll know your drinking enough water when the color of your urine appears either clear or slightly yellow.
Eat plenty of vegetable and fruits
Both vegetables and fruits are high in water content. So, you are essentially eating water.
Apples are my favorite fruit to eat not only because of their high concentration of water, but also because they are packed with fiber.
But any fruit or vegetable is acceptable. Choose the ones you like.
If you follow these two suggestions, you should stop retaining water quickly and lose water weight within a matter of days.
