Yes, too much sodium in one evening can really make you look and feel more bloated the next morning. This phenomenon, called edema, is caused by excess fluid in your body tissues. Edema can be a symptom of an underlying disease, according to specialists at the Mayo Clinic, but it can also simply be a sign that your diet is too high in salt. The easiest solution to this is to reduce your sodium intake. Read food labels, choose foods low in sodium, or cook your own to control salt intake. Stop making these mistakes when reading a food label.
