? salt problem: It sounds like you are retaining fluid from high fat and high salt foods. Do you have liver disease? You should see a doctor to get your electrolytes checked out. For now, stick with a bland, low salt diet. Use fresh fruits and vegetables and plain baked or grilled chicken or simple fish.
