What is Water Weight?

Water weight is extra weight you carry because of water retention. You can get rid of your water weight usually by drinking the proper amount of water you need. To figure out how much water you should be drinking divide your body weight in half and that will be how many ounces of water you should be drinking daily. If you are unable to shed your water retained weight you should speak with your doctor to make sure you do not have a underlying condition causing your water retention.
