Fitness tips and health advice from Trainer Lady Diane Bechtle.
ARE YOU RETAINING WATER??? Carbohydrates, Fats, and Protein are our main sources of energy. We need all three of these in our daily food intake.
I just read in one of my journals (I keep learning with you!): As carbohydrate is stored in the form of glycogen, it binds to water in the liver and muscle. Changes in carbohydrate storage often result in meaningful shifts in fluid storage. That, my friends, results in water retention and weight gain.
Feeling bloated or just kinda heavy? Cut back on your intake of fruits, grains, potatoes, cereals, and sugars. Add extra protein to satisfy your hunger, and let the water flush out.
