Exercised but not weightlifting. However, you do lose water weight while burning calories when lifting but not as much as if you were to run on a treadmill. Either run on the treadmill or make use of the stairmaster.
The goal you are trying to achieve is to burn calories which will in turn make losing water weight much easier. A few miles on the treadmill is what you should aim for to burn the weight.
Seasoning your food with spices that help you lose water weight. You know that favorite seasoning that you buy from the store, just a quarter tablespoon, not a whole tablespoon, contains 350mg of sodium. Replace that with garlic seasoning. Not only is it a healthier option, it can help you lose water weight, and it tastes good. After a week or two of using it you wouldn’t want to go back to the old salt infested seasoning anymore.
Also try adding some cayenne pepper with that seasoning to increase your metabolism furthering your fat loss. Putting those together would make a huge difference to your everyday meal.
5. The Sauna
This one is last but not least on the list because we know this isn’t available to everyone. The sauna is possibly one of the best ways to drop water weight. Stay in there for about 15-20 minutes to lose that excess water. Don’t go over that because you can lose too much water which can potentially be dangerous. Make sure you drink plenty of water when you leave.
Easy test to see if you’re retaining water:
First method is to pinch yourself around the hip area and let it go. If you take a lot out and when you let go and it creates a ripple effect, then it’s a good indication that you’re retaining water.
This second method might sound a bit strange but it works! Simply taste your own sweat. If your sweat taste salty then you’re probably retaining some water. If it taste like nothing that means you’re not retaining as much water.
