Normally, it would mean a low or no salt diet.  But what caused the water
weight gain?  Diet might not help.  Diuretics could be dangerous if not
administered by someone who knows what they're doing.

Yes.  Very low salt/low sodium.  Check labels, as lots of processed
foods that don't taste especially salty are loaded with salt.  Salt
free products are more and more available.

As I read it, one of the criticisms leveled at the Atkins diet
is water loss.  Atkins does not dispute the assertion that some
of the weight lost on an Atkins diet is water, only its
significance of the water weight in terms of overall weight loss.

Yes, however, as I understand it, as soon as you deviate from the Atkins
diet, you'll regain some of the water weight simply as a consequence from
increasing the percentage of calories eaten as carbohydrate and decrease
the amount of protein.

It certainly happened that way to me.  I couldn't stick to the Atkins diet
for long and immediately after I left it, I gained a lot of water weight.

People who go on very low carbohydrate diets like Atkins lose water because
their glycogen stores are depleted trying to provide glucose for the
brain (since very little is ingested in the diet).  Glycogen is glucose
stored in water.

Any water weight loss will come back once you start ingesting a normal
level of carbohydrates or if you eat enough protein that the body
can convert excess aminos to glucose and then to glycogen.

 That doesn't apply to *everyone*.  Depending on you genetic type,
 USING salt can have a diuretic effect as well, especially with those
 that have low aldosterone levels.

 Occasionally I have had patients walk into my office with their feet
 all puffed up and 'swelling' right out of their shoes, while their
 (cellular) sodium registered well below normal. After telling them
 to try a glass of 'salt water' and then report their response, it
 was nothing unusual to be told of a water weight *loss* from 10-15+
 pounds within a day or two.

 Without a thorough medical check-up, it would be very difficult for
 the average person to accurately determine the reasons for their
 water weight gain, as several organ functions (kidneys, liver, heart)
 or vascular causes (varicose veins, thrombophlebitis...) or hormones
 (thyroxine, estrogen...) or other chemicals may be involved as well.
