Diet advice
Ritenzione Idrica: Combatterla e Prevenirla
The water retention it occurs due to a tendency for the body to retain fluids, especially in the spaces between one cell and another in the adipose tissue. The affected areas usually appear with a 'orange peel', evident above all on the buttocks and legs, where retention affects those points. Women are more affected than men, due to hormonal imbalances, sedentary lifestyle, birth control pills and so on. The causes common to men and women, in any case, can be listed as follows:
  • Little hydration
  • Little physical movement
  • Excessive consumption of salt at the table
  • Unregulated feeding
  • Imbalance of mineral salts within the body
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Smoke
Swelling due to retention can occur at an upper level, i.e. arms, hands, neck, face, at a median level, on the belly and buttocks, or at a lower level, legs and ankles. This last type of retention is very widespread and occurs especially during the summer heat.

How to fight retention

For all non-pathological causes, the most classic and useful advice is as follows:
  • Drink at least 2 liters of water a day
  • Reduce pounds of body weight
  • Don't lead an excessively sedentary life
  • Follow a healthy and controlled diet
  • For those who work sitting down, take a 10-15 minute break every two hours
