I saw this on "Shape" magazine's twitter and had to share...if you live in constant fear of CANKLES, this can help either get rid of them or keep them at bay.
A major culprit:
Fluid buildup in the ankle generally comes from a heavy sodium intake; it's a pure reflection of one's dietary habits.
What can I do? If you notice that your ankles have begun to swell and/or feel as though you are retaining water, visit your physician or schedule an appointment with a registered dietitian. Remember that 80 percent of your overall wellness is based on what you eat, not what you do physically.
Will exercise help? A structural wellness plan can be established with a certified personal trainer. But again, you cannot spot reduce--exercise is just part of the equation. Walking, running, hiking, or simply taking the stairs instead of the elevator will contribute to a healthy overall lifestyle."
Good to know!!
I gotta remember to eat more of THESE and less of the salty/processed crap.
