Do you suffer from swollen, painful legs? Have you been told you have water retention and to keep your legs bandaged up? One of the main causes of water retention is overeating salty food. The main component of salt is sodium, which the body dilutes with water if too much of it is present. Salt makes you thirsty, and your body will hold on to this water. Reducing the amount of salt in your diet will help you to release a little water retention but not usually more than about 2 lbs in weight. Low-Calorie Diets If you have water retention, you are very likely to be overweight. But overweight people tend to go on a low-calorie diet. A low-calorie diet will unfortunately not get rid of water retention – it can make it worse, mostly if you eat less than 1,200 Calories a day for months or years.
Because you may not have enough protein in your blood to draw excess water out of your tissues, this type of water retention can cause generalised puffiness, but if severe, can give you a swollen tummy.
