Drop That Water Weight

On any given day, you could be carrying 2 to 5 pounds of extra water weight. The likely culprit? Too much salt in your diet, such as from processed foods, deli meats, frozen dinners, and canned soups. Although it sounds counter intuitive, drinking water is one of the best ways to get rid of water weight. In a nutshell, water flushes out water. But if you’re not a big fan of H2O, try squeezing in some lemon or lime for more flavor. Or you can sub in other fluids, such as iced green tea or even coffee, which, contrary to popular belief, won’t dehydrate you in moderate amounts (up to four cups). It also helps to get moving: Sweating it out at the gym can help you ditch excess water weight, while — bonus! — beating PMS-related moodiness and fatigue.
