So I'm reading this article to Treat Fluid Retention and it suggests
- Eat foods with diuretic properties.
- Avoid drinks that will dehydrate the body such as tea, coffee and alcohol.
As I understand, tea, coffee and alcohol are plenty diuretic. So what makes those veggies's diuretic nature better than alcohol's?
I know alcohol is more harmful than veggies, but I mainly wanted to know how do diuretic veggies help you when infact the diuretic alcohol actually makes you dehyderated? How's veggies' diuretic nature more helpful than the alcohol's (disregarding other side-effects of it)?
