Re: swelling

What is your salt intake like? Salt has a tendancy to make people retain water thus causing a bloated feeling or in your case, swelling. You will want to limit the foods that are high in sodium, such as potato chips and salami. Also, sometimes when I have that problem of afternoon swelling, I drink a lot of water.
