There’s nothing worse than the scale hiking up 3-5 pounds overnight or trying to put on your favorite jeans just to find that you can’t get them done up. While it would take food in huge quantities to actually put on that much fat in such a short time frame, it doesn’t take much to get your body to hold onto the same amount of water, causing you to feel miserable and fatigued.
Why Do You Bloat?
There are three main reasons that most people bloat: too many carbs, too much salt or not enough water.
Carb consumption causes your body to retain water. Bodybuilders are aware of this fact and use it prior to shows if they want to make their muscles look bigger. It’s also why eating too many high-carb meals make you feel and look larger.
The same thing happens if you consume too much salt, which is easy to do in this day of high processed foods. Because your body doesn’t like too much sodium, it retains water in an effort to lessen the concentration. The result? You guessed it – bloat!
And, finally, your body will hold onto water if you don’t give it enough. It may sound weird, but the best way to lose water weight is to drink more of it!
