A lot of salt in your food will make you bloated.
And this brings us to the topic of getting bloated. If you eat too much salty foods, your body will swell and you will get bloated. The medical name for this is “edema” – when the tissues of the body retain fluid and one of the reasons for that is excess of sodium. It is simply known as water retention.
Your fingers will swell and your eyes will be puffy. You will also be a few pounds heavier and that’s because of the water retained in the body tissues. During this time, you will also be very thirsty.
