Our expert says:
If you are retaining water then it is always a good idea to have a medical checkup as this could be something quite harmless like water retention due to hormonal variations, or something more serious like kidney problems. It could also be that you just regained the weight lost with the detox you used which may have caused loss of water not fat. Have the checkup and if you are given a clean bill of health reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). Exercise is particularly beneficial for helping to get rid of excess water.
