A lot of the time we’re carrying excess water weight – whether that be from biochemical and hormonal imbalances, toxicity, or poor cardiovascular and cellular health.
These symptoms are really just your body trying to tell you that you’re either a) too acidic or b) dehydrated. When your body is dehydrated, either because you simply aren’t drinking enough water or because you are eating too much sodium, you will hold onto water as a survival mode to ensure cells remain supple and plump.
If your feet are swollen at the end of the day, or you have sock marks on your ankles, then you definitely need to shed some excess water weight. Thankfully, this juice recipe will allow you to flush the body of excess sodium and rehydrate your cells.
It is also smart to avoid foods that make our bodies hold onto excess water weight like meat products, alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, dairy, deep-fried and processed foods, picked foods, condiments and sauces.
