Why am I retaining water and feeling bloated?

I am new at using the Nutribullet and have heard that water is good, I have to admit I only drank soda and juice, I would not drink water at all. But for the last 3 weeks I have been drinking nothing but water and don't even crave soda anymore, sometimes I still crave juice. My question is since I started drinking water I feel more full when I eat and bloated. I have 7 kids and when I was pregnant I would retain a lot of water. I had my last daughter 8 months ago and have not been able to lose any weight at all and now that I have been drinking water I feel very bloated again. Please what can I do?

While water takes up space and can sometimes make you feel full, it has actually been known to help reduce bloating. Maybe there is something else going on here...check out this article and let us know what else you are eating and putting in your Blasts. http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/feeling-bloated

Thank you for the article it was helpful. I have only been doing blasts for cleansing and not very often. I want to try the 3-day spring cleanse and other blasts but I am breastfeeding and dont know if there are any boosts or superfoods that I should not take that might affect my baby daughter? Thank you for your help.
I do not recommend doing a low calorie cleanse while breastfeeding. You ultimately need an additional 500 calories a day to keep up your milk supply. In addition, as you probably know, what you eat ends up in your breast milk. There are certain foods that some babies don't take well to. I would avoid any boosts with too much added caffeine (things like guayusa and coffee beans). I would also avoid maca. Here is a great article that goes into more detail! http://www.babycenter.com/404_are-there-any-foods-i-should-avoid-while-breastfeeding_8906.bc
