Water lowers the amount of fat stored in your body because your kidneys get very lazy on the job when you don't drink enough water and as a result of you not drinking water, your kidneys give most of its unfinished work to your liver.
One of your liver's functions is to help your body burn stored fat for energy and it can't perform that job fully if it has to do the kidney's job also.

When you limit the amount of sodium you eat your body will begin to expel some that unwanted water weight.
Thirst is a good indicator that your sodium intake is two high. As your sodium levels get high your body ask for more water to dilute the sodium by making you thirsty.
This is why many bars offer salty snacks such as pretzels and peanuts for free, after customers get thirsty they will order drinks to quench their thirst
To limit your sodium intake stay away from foods like canned soups, fast foods, and cured meats.
