1- Losing weight can be the consequence of water loss
Excess water in the body can cause bloating or even swelling of the legs and arms. People who are victims of water retention feel compressed in their clothes and feel like they have gained weight. Often, excessive salt consumption causes significant water retention. This mechanism can make you gain up to 3 kilos on the scale. For example, people who are prone to water retention may feel like they have lost a few kilos when the water is drained from the body, but this will not be a loss of body fat.
