What is water retention?
Ever heard to water retention? Yup, other than storing fat, excess water retention (takungan air badan berlebihan) can make you look soft as well, especially an issue once you have managed to reduce your body fat and “still” dont look as toned as you envisioned, ah yes vanity rules hahaha.
Water or fat: How to tell the difference?
You can do a lil pull test. Just grab a nice layer of fat (you tummy would be a good idea), and pull. Water will tend to wobble more than fat will over the abs tetapi susah jugak to identify sekiranya you have lots of fat (salah nisbah nanti). But typically, reducing water retention becomes relavant once your body fat percentage hits below 15%.

Water is the best way to get of excess water?
Well we all know that salt acts like a sponge and retains more water so yeah cutting down on garam would be a good idea. Selain itu, the most important thing to remember is that you actually have to drink more water to remove excess water.

Why? Coz if you dont, the body will try to conserve bodily fluid, thinking that its not gonna get much more. So yeah 1.5L of water per day is advisable. People that know me will tell you that I always always carry a small bottle of water with me.
So yeah 1.5L of water per day is advisable. Thats about 8 regular glasses.
Here are various methods to get rid of excess water in your body:
- Drink more water!
- Kurangkan pengambilan garam.
- Run in a sweat suit or baju panas.
- Fat burners are very diuretic (diuretic is any drug that elevates the rate of urination).
- Watermelon is supposed to be diurectic.
- Asparagus as well.
- Foods rich in fiber tends to absorb more water during digestion.
- I’m sure ada banyak lagi cara lain but this should be enough lah.
