Do you feel like you’re heavier than you really are? Sometimes, we eat healthy and exercise regularly and still the results are just not visible. Many people are scratching their head on what may be hampering their progress and we’re going to locate the culprit. According to experts, those excess pounds are not extra weight – they are water weight instead.
The so-called water weight is actually a condition known as edema or fluid retention. It occurs when the body starts retaining fluid due to various causes. The fluid can accumulate in our body tissues and circulatory system. One of the main triggers for fluid retention is change in the pressure of the capillaries which results in water retention in the tissues and swelling.
Too much fluid stuck in the lymphatic system is another one of the reasons for fluid retention. When fluid gets accumulated in our tissues and makes the limbs swell, it can look pretty bad and add a few pounds to your weight. It’s definitely not pretty to look bloated.
BODY FAT OR WATER WEIGHT?
Determining what is the cause of your excess pounds can be tricky. Our body contains 55-75% of water, with the rest being a combination of fat and muscle. Our water weight fluctuates between 2-4 pounds every day – it’s impossible to gain that much muscle or fat in a single day. Gaining one pound of fat means adding 3500 calories on top of the daily intake, so if you’ve not been eating that much (and you surely haven’t), chances are your excess weight is caused by fluid retention.
