  • Salt is the number one thing that will make you retain water so be sure to watch your sodium intake
  • Alcohol and caffeine are other factors that should be avoided if you're concerned with bloating
  • Edema can be caused by a protein deficiency so up your protein intake and increase raw veggies - fiber is important to decrease swelling
  • Exercise daily and take hot baths or a steam a few times a week to sweat out your toxins
  • Make sure you are taking the right vitamins. Bromelain helps with swelling and digestion and any high-potency B-complex supplement will help reduce water retention

I hope these tips are helpful - and always remember to take off your rings before you go to bed since most people tend to wake up a little more swollen than normal.
