Snack Suggestions: You can enjoy 2 cups of your favorite melon OR 1 cup of blackberries, raspberries or blueberries and 2 cups of strawberries.
The strawberries are a dieter's delight because they are light in calories - at about 45 per cup in their whole natural state. The raspberries, blackberries and blueberries contain about 70 to 80 calories per cup.
Melon is also quite low in energy content at 50 calories per cup. It holds superior qualities in the area of releasing water retention such as due to eating too much salt in your diet.
Other foods which are superior for naturally remedying water retention issues include: beets, asparagus, apples and proteins such as boiled eggs.
