That’s because, when the body feels like it doesn’t have much water, it retains whatever liquid it has in resulting in water retention. So, avoid salty food, especially processed food, so your tummy doesn’t bloat and make it a point to drink more water.

You’ll also make frequent trips to the bathroom which means, you’ll be flushing out toxins and prevent things like a urinary tract infection from happening.

Having a snack will also tide you till dinnertime and keep you from overindulging on certain foods especially when you’ve been hungry for hours.
