Parties without swelling due to fluid retention
December is a month to celebrate, share, give and meet loved ones. But it is also time when you can fall into excesses.
You overindulge in dishes drenched in sauces or with a lot of salt, sugary desserts, and calorie-filled liquors. Also, you exceed all-nighters and stress from having to prepare the celebrations, attend to visitors and make last-minute purchases.
That 's not to mention that the hormonal imbalances of perimenopause and menopause don't take December vacations , making you retain fluids just like every day.
A drastic measure for parties without swelling due to fluid retention would be not going to any event, crazy right? Better follow the advice that we are going to offer you below.
Why do you usually swell more in December because of fluids?
Swelling in the body and face due to fluid retention appears when your body detects a low level of fluids. Either because you are poorly hydrated, you abused salt and sodium, or because of hormones.
The fact is that when your body identifies that drop in fluids, it activates a perfectly efficient defense mechanism. Imagine it as if it closed all the floodgates to accumulate the liquid it considers necessary to maintain its balance.
I give you two examples:
After a big dinner where you had a couple of drinks and ate divine, your hands, ankles, lips and eyelids look swollen. It is because your body is trying to balance the excess sodium or salt through the accumulation of fluids.
Also, you can swell when you get stressed because you want your parties to be perfect or you don't know what to give your children and grandchildren. Not only because you generate more cortisol hormone (which causes fluid retention), but you tend to take refuge in foods that give you pleasure in minutes, such as sweet and salty snacks, or fried foods.
10 keys to parties without swelling due to body fluid retention
We agree, the holidays are to be enjoyed, not to be too restrictive. But you can learn how to combat fluid retention and avoid great swelling at this time, learning to transform habits .
- Avoid foods rich in salt such as sausages, sauces, dressings and some cheeses, especially Roquefort.
- Start to stop eating sugar , controlling desserts, sweets, fast food, soft drinks and other foods because they will make you retain more water within the body.
- On days you don't celebrate, try to eat enough protein, if possible without dressings or sauces.
- Vegetables such as artichokes, watercress, chard, pumpkin, among others, as well as melon and sideburns, will help you counteract the sodium in your body.
- Hydrate yourself with two liters of water a day (approx. 8 glasses of water) and thus allow adequate elimination of liquids, preventing their retention. You should not exceed that amount of water because you will retain it. If you consume mineral water, check on the label that it is sodium free.
- Be careful with alcoholic beverages , as many are high in sugar or mixed with soft drinks.
- You can take a break from your regular training routines, but don't become sedentary. Move or do some exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Take advantage of the parties to dance, you will have fun and you will counteract the swelling due to fluid retention.
- Avoid dresses, shoes and clothing that are too tight because they obstruct your circulation and make it difficult for the correct expulsion of liquids.
- Try to keep your regular sleep routine , the days you don't go out partying. Sleeping at least 8 hours prevents swelling and excess fluids.
- Consume supplements to eliminate liquids from your body such as the Less fat, less water Combo that contains natural ingredients with diuretic properties so that you can improve swelling in the extremities, face and abdomen.
