One of the biggest reasons for water retention is eating too much salt. People who eat large amounts of processed foods, especially fast food or junk food suffer from retaining water the most. This puts a strain on your kidneys, which have to filter all of that sodium from your blood. When you eat an unhealthy diet, you are preventing your body from getting the nutrients it needs. Things like vitamins that you get from fruits and vegetables as well as proteins trigger water retention. A low carb and high protein diet helps your kidneys, which are the ones that control the amount of water in our bodies.
