You can't starve fat off your body. Why? Fat doesn't need to be fed. There is no "cure-all" diet.
Everyone is genetically different and processes food differently. You are unique. Proper nutrition, productive exercise and positive motivation is the only valid technique to achieve long term weight management.
Without exercise supported by nutrition and motivation, you will lose muscle, not fat Oxygen is imperative in order to optimally burn fat. Therefore, cardiovascular activity is essential. Exercise sends a message to your body that muscle is more valuable than fat Through exercise, you teach your body to keep muscle and therefore it must burn fat for energy.
8 glasses of water a day keeps the fat away. Water suppresses the appetite and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Kidneys can't function properly without enough water. When the kidney doesn't function to capacity, the liver takes on a workload. The liver's primary function is to metabolize fat into energy. If the liver is working for the kidney, it can't function at it's full capacity to burn your fat cells.
The best way to overcome water retention is to give your body more water. Your body will then release the stored water The more salt you eat, the more water your body will hold. More water will remove the sodium. Water helps to maintain muscle by giving it the natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration. Remember, your muscles are primarily made up of water.
