Five ways to improve your body water percentage
It’s not possible to lose or gain muscle or fat overnight. Daily fluctuations in your weight are indicators that something else is occurring in your body that is resulting in sudden decreases or increases in your weight. The most likely explanation is that your body is retaining more or less water.
Water is the main component of our bodies. Most of your weight comes from the water in your body and is referred to as your “body water percentage”. This figure can vary based on factors such as your age, gender, and body structure.
However, there are times when your body water percentage is too high because you’re retaining water. You feel bloated, swollen, and your clothes feel too tight and uncomfortable. There are five important techniques that you can use to improve your body water percentage:
- Drink water – drinking more water encourages your body to release the excess fluid
- Use herbs – cranberry and lemon juice, dandelion root all help to eliminate water retention
- Exercise regularly
- Lower your sugar and salt intake
- Eat the right foods – foods that are high in protein, amino acids, and potassium all help to naturally reduce water retention
