Healthy Habits to Lose Weight-What should you eat?

What is the best way of getting rid of water weight? Naturally is the best. You can find over-the-counter diuretics, but they don’t have any nutritional value. Implement foods and healthy practices that will not only help you in getting rid of water weight, but will help you melt fat cells as well. Natural practices can improve your overall health.


Eat foods that are rich in water content. Watermelon, celery, and apples all have a high content of water and aid in flushing out extra water. These foods are easy and light on the digestive tract. They don’t require a lot of energy to digest. Your body will have more energy to burn calories and flush out excess water since it will be saving energy from digestion.

Yogurt is good to eat for your digestion as well. Yogurt has acidophilus in it which acts as a probiotic. Probiotics are helpful bacteria that break down food and boost your immune system. Probiotics keep bloating and gas at bay. Acidophilus comes in a supplement form as well.

Chia seeds are very healthy to consume because they are jammed packed with protein and all three omegas. Chia seeds can hold ten times their weight in water. They help you stay hydrated. It’s easy to add them to a smoothie, yogurt, or oatmeal.

What should you drink?

Water is the best beverage you can drink when getting rid of water weight. Water will help flush out stagnant water. Adding lemon to your water takes it even further. Lemon is a natural detoxifier and diuretic. It will aid in releasing extra water and toxins. Avoid drinking calorie, flavored, and sugar filled drinks. Even though they “contain” water, they have other ingredients, including sodium that produces water weight and bloating.

Blending fruits and veggies into a smoothie is an excellent way to combat water weight. Use high water content type food and a dash of lemon. Add some yogurt for a smoother texture and sweeter taste. Top it off with some chia seeds and you’ll have a natural energy drink that will shrink water weight.

What should you do?

Water weight can exit your body in the form sweat. Exercising will help your body systems to work on flushing out extra water. Exercising increases energy and stops fat cell production.
Circulation will also increase and aid in processing water through your system.
