I have a chronically blocked nose and my eyes and nose will get very itchy quite often. My nose blows up like a balloon some days. I have no idea what I might be allergic to. Maybe mold? How is gut health related to this?

This happens to me, I look like a troll. Getting rid of the puffy face and nose is a big motivation to go low carb for me.

In the distant past, alcohol was rumored to make women's heels rounder. ;)

I could be wrong but think it's inflammation as I have noticed that after imbibing in alcohol I have the same reaction the next day.

Do you go on a crazy, carb-fueled rampage and then pass out, face down? That could be the problem.

Mal, it sounds like you might have an allergy or some kind of infection in your sinuses. Although I am a fan of higher carb paleo diets for health, I do know that more carbs can mean more inflammation for some... especially if carbs + fat are high. Do you have any nasal blockage, however mild? Allergy symptoms? How is your gut health?

I wonder cause this happens during pregnancy too.. I've noticed it and a few of my friends have noticed the same happening to them. I thought it was water retention-related.
