Table salt is the most common cause of water retention. Excess sodium makes the body hold extra fluids in the cells. When you cut down salt and high sodium condiments like soy sauce, you can quickly lose water weight. There is also a wide variety of salt substitutes.
Have you ever weighed yourself and noticed the scale is one pound more than it was the previous day? Most likely it is the amount of water your body is retaining. There are a few things that can cause water retention such as too much salt, sugar, dehydration, too much alcohol, dieting and women’s monthly cycle.
Drinking the required amount of water can increase bloat and discomfort during that time of the month.
This may sound a bit confusing, but it works - the more water you consume, the more water your body will release.
Drinking 8 to 10 glasses per day will help flush sodium and excess fluid from your system. A well-hydrated body is healthier and is less likely to retain water.

You've made up your mind, divorce is the only option. It's time to make plans. This may sound a bit premeditated but, if you do not have a plan in motion you could end up in an even worse situation.
More than fifty percent of all marriages end in divorce. And if that isn't bad enough, women are the hardest hit as a result.
Please make sure you read Divorce! Part 1 "Life After". Seeing the outcome can insure you're making the best decision.
Finances: Do not depend on child support or alimony because nothing is guaranteed. You would have to qualify for spousal support and it's not as easy as you think. In most cases the spouse will fight to keep as much money as possible.
Career: Make sure you have job stability. You have to count up the cost. Can you successfully live on your income alone?
Children: What will you tell your children? Many people stay in bad relationships fearing the kids won't be able to handle the transition. We create and set the tone in our lives. If mom is ok the children will adjust. Make sure the little ones understand that the decision for divorce is not their fault and that you both love them unconditionally.
Support System: Don't worry about the opinion of others. The people who truly love you will be at your side no matter what.
Future Goals: Out with the old and in with the new! Change can be difficult but not impossible. Take time out to consider what is best for you and set new goals. It will seem awkward at first but it's very important to keep moving so you won't fall into depression. Remember to protect yourself at all times.
