In brief: Salt restriction

Water retention is actually usually caused by sodium retention.
That easiest way to reduce water retention is to reduce the amount of sodium intake. The recommended amount of sodium on a low sodium diet is 2000 mg per day. Most food items will have the sodium in milligrams label on them.
