Water weight occurs when there is a buildup of fluids in the circulatory system. There are specific foods and strategies that will help reduce water weight in the body.
Nearly 60 percent of a person's weight is due to water. Fortunately, a person can lose up to 3 pounds overnight by following a strict diet and a healthy lifestyle to get rid of water weight.
1. Sleep more
Studies show that most people sleep only for 5 to 6 hours a day which means sleeping for an extra 30 minutes can offer more energy to perform workouts to help decrease water weight. Some doctors even suggest sleeping 9 hours a day because doing so will give the body enough energy to stay active throughout the day.
2. Sweat it out
Any exercise that warms the body and increases heartbeat will help trim down water weight faster. Cardiac exercises such as walking and running should also be performed in the morning and at night to speed up the water weight reduction process.
3. Rose Petal Water
Add distilled water to a pan of rose petals and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until the petals' color drains out before straining. This natural remedy should be consumed on an empty stomach every morning to lessen the quantity of water in the circulatory system by reducing water from the blood.
4. Herbal Tea
Tea such as chamomile, lemon tea, herbal grass tea and green tea will not only help detoxify the body, but it can also help decrease water weight. In addition, parsley tea, in particular, provides antioxidants that cut water weight and keeps the body active.
Eating watermelon or consuming it as juice works wonders in eliminating water weight fast. In addition, watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin A, B, C and magnesium that offers a radiant glow.
6. Apple Cider Vinegar
Being a natural diuretic, apple cider vinegar also maintains potassium levels in the body. Losing potassium during water weight reduction may be harmful to the kidney so drinking two spoons of apple cider vinegar can help maintain potassium levels without the water weight.
7. Drink more water
While this may seem counterintuitive, shedding water weight may be achieved by increasing the amount of water being consumed. The body needs water to flush out toxins so when the body is not getting enough water, it will keep storing water until it gets enough, according to Muscle and Fitness.
