Water retention and nutrition: 10 key points

© iStok

Reconnect with naturalness

All processed products, even sweet ones, contain salt, but also additives that would lead to intolerance, at the digestive level, responsible for retention. We favor home-made and basic foods, and the prepared meals are confined to troubleshooting by checking that they contain less than 1 g per serving (400 mg of sodium).

Lentils, red and white beans, split peas


Vary the legumes

Legumes(also called dried vegetables) are full of nutrients: proteins, B vitamins, iron, magnesium… So, in addition to the classic lentils, think of red and white beans, flageolets, split peas…

Stay hydrated to fight against water retention


Drink water throughout the day

Contrairementàuneidéereçue,water consumption in the event of water retention.Good hydration of the body promotes better elimination of toxins through urine. Ideally, onboith eight glasses of water, distributed throughout the day

Favor foods rich in omega-3


Choose the right fats

Rather than foods rich in saturated fat (butter, cream, cold cuts, etc.), we prefer those rich in Omega 3, such as fatty fish (salmon, herring, mackerel, etc.) and oils from walnuts, soybeans, rapeseed, wheat germ (2 to 3 tablespoons per day)… These unsaturated fatty acids with anti-inflammatory properties are essential for the balance of our metabolism and the proper functioning of our defenses.
