Water Weight

Water & Weight LossWater weight is symptomatic of the body striving to retain water for a healthy balance.  The body is said to consist of 70% water. H2O is essential to the health of the body, but at times water weight can build up in your system, we call this water weight. There are a number of simple measures that can be taken to eliminate this and help you to lose water weight.

Often when the body is not getting enough water it will attempt to retain water by hoarding what water there is, causing bloating. Drinking more water balances out the volume of water that the body needs. Most people do not drink enough water on a daily basis. Remember that on the Liquid Amino Diet we recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces or 64 ounces minimum.

Consuming foods with too much salt or high sodium can induce water retention as well. The water we drink helps to flush our bodies of excess sodium, but the more sodium we take in the more water we need to keep the process in balance.  Loss of water weight can simply be the result of less sodium for the body to have to deal with.

One final measure that may be one of the best to help lose water weight is by implementing a simple and moderate exercise program. If you want to start an exercise plan, then you can choose to follow the Liquid Amino Diet ACTIVE plan. Losing water weight can be very basic – drink enough water, do some moderate exercise, don’t consume high sodium foods, and eating healthier foods can go a long way in defeating water weight.

The Liquid Amino Diet plan consists of eating a clean and balanced diet that helps you lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you have questions, call a health coach at 1-800-980-7208.
