6 Simple And Effective Home Remedies For Water Retention

Water retention or fluid retention, is the accumulation of excess body fluid in certain areas of the body. It is, in the worse cases, quite the unsightly looking condition.

In milder condition, it can cause someone to look obese despite not being overweight. It can also cause pressure fluctuations and in the worst of cases, even a coma.

15 Foods That Fight Stress

Stress happens. You likely have some stress going on in your life right now. Far too often, stress can lead to health problems, one of which is weight gain. Stress causes your levels of cortisol to rise, and cortisol increases hunger, particularly cravings for starchy or sweet foods. Of course, this leads to a vicious cycle as weight gain causes more stress, leading to overeating and additional weight gain. However, eating certain foods that can stabilize your blood sugar levels and help combat stress-related hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) while increasing feel-good chemicals can help you stay level-headed to handle whatever life throws your way.

Folate-Filled Foods
Foods that are rich in folate help boost your circulating levels of dopamine, a calming, feel-good chemical in your brain. Examples of folate-rich foods include leafy green vegetables (spinach, chard, kale, collards, turnip greens), asparagus, edamame, artichokes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, beans, lentils, and peas.

Step by steps1. Don't smoke. Period. It increases free radicals, which lead to cell death, it wrecks your lungs so you can't exercise and it affects your social life.

2. Eat your essential fatty acids. The American Heart Association recommends you eat fish twice a week to get enough omega-3, omega-6 and DHA into the body. It helps cells be flexible and permeable and has been shown to be an important part of the cells of the nervous system, blood vessels and skin. That means they help with the wrinkles and the brains, isn't that perfect? Oily fish is the best, but not because it's deep fried with chips.
