Whether you are busy with work, school or even with your children, you can always squeeze in the time to work out to aid in weight loss. For those who sit down for an extended period of time (like me at the office!), you tend to feel so blah as the end of the day nears. If you have the tendency to retain fluids in your body, then you may often experience increased weight overnight.

Excess estrogen can cause fluid retention and edema; this affects women a few days before menstruation and women who are entering menopause. Stress and lifestyle, these situations help trigger mechanisms by which the body tends to increase the synthesis of substances such as catecholamines, which are involved directly on fluid retention.
A diet rich in fat, sodium, alcoholic beverages and poor water consumption help produce swelling due to fluid retention. If you don’t have any disease, then you can take simple actions to eliminate kilos caused by fluid retention.

The fiber, as found in fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grain cereals, is beneficial for digestion and thus helps eliminate fluids that your body does not need.
