Here are 5 way to drop excess water weight in just a few days. Follow these steps and you won’t be carrying around more weight than you should be!
When you’re stuggling with some extra kilos it can be really frustrating to hear statements like “you’re retaining water” or “it isn’t actually fat, it’s water”, but both of these can be true. Water retention is a major reason for not being able to drop those kilos.
