What Causes Water Retention and How to Get Rid Of It

By

If you’re struggling with water retention and want to know how to lose that water weight for good, you want to listen to this episode.

You’ve counted every calorie and checked them twice.

You’ve logged every step and rep, every day.

You’ve bought every supplement that might possibly help.

And you’re still not losing weight.

What the hell?

You know how a calorie deficit works and you’re not overeating.

You know how to prevent “metabolic damage” and aren’t starving yourself.

And you know you’re working way too damn hard in the gym to see the same dismal sight in the mirror and on the scale every day.

Well, when the “obvious” reasons for a weight loss plateau are eliminated, the culprit is often water retention. And when water retention is the problem, it’s important that you address it correctly.

If you do what most people do–exercise even more and eat even less–you’ll likely make the problem even worse.

The emotional firestorm of anger and frustration will burn even hotter…and the only hope for extinguishing it will likely become a long, greasy binge.

I don’t want that to happen to you.

So in this episode, I’m going to break it all down: what causes water retention, what works for getting rid of water weight and what doesn’t, and more.

Let’s get to it.
