One of the biggest questions and worries I get from my clients is how to reduce water retention after a weekend away.
Water retention is a result of an increased salt/sodium intake from eating foods that differ from our usual diet.
A potential side effect to striping off half-naked on Instagram for the majority of the year is that you’ll more than likely be met with the below comment at some point:
"You love yourself"
However, it’s sometimes not as bad or as good as you think, so I thought I’d deconstruct it.
One of the biggest pain points I get from busy workers is that they get home from work and don’t know what to eat because their day has been so hectic.
They are so hungry that they just eat anything.
When I started my corporate job at the end of last year, some of the most notorious things I heard from people in the office are:
"I've put on so much weight because of this job."
"This job just makes me fat."
"Being sat down all day does not help my waistline."
Being sedentary all day definitely doesn't help on the 'activity front' and for many of us, being stationary all day can feel like 'the reason why' we're not losing weight.
Looming deadlines, relentless emails and endless social media comparisons signalling you to achieve more, work more and put more hours in.
So much so that the World Health Organisation has recently declared burnout an 'occupational phenomenon'.
