What to eat and drink:

*Vegetables like dark leafy greens (broccoli, spinach, kale) and celery.
*Lean proteins like salmon, white fish and chicken, but don't add salt. Also, grill your meat, it's one of the leanest way to cook protein.
*Water, water and more water, drink 100 ounces to be safe. Add lemon to some of those ounces to flush sodium out of your system.
*Watermelon, oranges, grapefruit -- basically any fruit that has a high water content.
