How To Get Rid Of Water Retention
7 Ways To Lose Water Weight Fast And Fit Into Your Party Dress
If you are like most people who struggle with losing weight, you know how challenging it can be. Reducing calories, exercising, and eating a healthy diet are just a few things that will help you at losing excess pounds. However, if you have been struggling with trying to lose weight for a long time, it could be because of water retention. Water retention occurs when excess fluids build up in your body. Water retention could also be due to a medical issue. But, for the most part, many people experience water retention due to their diet, lack of exercise, and lifestyle.
Here are a few things that will show you how to get rid of water retention so you can lose weight faster.
1. Exercise More
Water retention is not simply water, but is sodium ions trapped underneath the skin and is why your sweat tastes salty. A slow sluggish metabolism can also be the underlying culprit to retaining water. Getting adequate exercise daily will help your body release trapped sodium ions. You will notice over time you sweat will taste like water. Exercise helps to reduce water retention by shifting a lot of water to your muscles. This can help reduce water outside of the cells and decrease the ‘soft’ look people don’t like too much.
2. Don’t Stress Out!
Long-term stress can increase the hormone cortisol, which can influence fluid retention and water weight. You body produces a hormone that controls water balance called ADH. ADH works by sending signals to the kidneys, telling them how much water to pump back into the body. If your control your cortisol levels you will maintain a normal ADH resulting in decreased water retention and disease risk.
3. Eat less salt
Eating salty foods like chips, French fries, and other processed snack foods are loaded with salt. Foods like canned soups and gravies also carry with them an over abundance of sodium. You body only need about 2000 – 2500 mg of sodium daily and about 1200 when your are trying to lose weight. If you are not sure how much sodium you are getting, keep a food diary of one day’s food intake and look up each food item for its sodium content. An online app can do the same thing. You will be surprised at the amount of sodium you are getting. Even natural whole foods like fruits and vegetables have sodium, just small amounts.
4. Eat foods with Potassium
Another is eating more foods with potassium. Potassium decreases sodium levels and increases urine production. Eating foods rich in potassium can help. Potassium rich foods include sweet potatoes, lima beans, bananas, mushrooms, spinach, greens, prunes, grapefruit, halibut, tuna, low-fat yogurt and molasses. Is there such a thing as getting too much potassium? The answer is yes, but in general, getting potassium naturally from food sources and not supplements are the safest way. Always check with your healthy doctor if you have concerns due to medical conditions or due to the type of medications you are taking.
5. Take Natural Diuretics.
Diuretics can be natural or synthetic and they increase the amount of urine excreted from the body. Beverages like caffeinated coffee and tea can cause dehydration, and are natural diuretics. Foods like celery, eggplant, asparagus, and watermelon are also natural diuretics. Drinking enough water daily will act as a natural diuretic as well.
6. Increase water Intake
Drinking water is very important if you want to lose weight. Drinking water helps boost your metabolism, cleanses your body of waste, and acts as an appetite suppressant. Drinking water also helps prevent your body from experiencing water retention. It is recommended that adults drink 8 to 10 eight-ounce glasses of water per day to keep hydrated and encourage weight loss. Increase Magnesium intake (adults need at least 200mg magnesium per day.
7. Drink Infused Water
We know drinking more water helps you lose weight, but what if you don’t like the taste of water? Even worse, what if you are addicted to sugary or chemical-filled diet drinks? Here’s where the power of infused water comes in. As discussed earlier, it is important to not only drink more water to eliminate water retention, but to include foods rich in potassium. One way to do both is to drink fruit and vegetable infused water. Certain fruits and vegetables have enzymes that help you release excess water along with giving your water a wonderful fresh taste. Drinking infused water can help you lose weight faster, burn fat, ease stress, heal minor ailments, and curb your sweet tooth. The best fruits and vegetables to help with water retention are: grapefruit, watermelon, pineapple, oranges, lemons, limes, mint, cucumber, and watercress.
