Hello. I have a question about fluid retention. I just began a new exercise program about 10 days ago, and I seem to be experiencing water retention at a rate that is higher than what is normal for me. Any suggestions? I try to be mindful of what I eat and drink, but want to know why I am retaining, and how long i can expect to do so. Thanks.
