This sounds like a food allergy. Try cutting out gluten, soy, or dairy for 2 weeks and see if it goes away. If you can't pinch fat on top, it's bloating. Cut down on salt and find the allergen. :)

I have the same problem, I'm so happen you asked this question on this forum and even more with the answers. Gonna start making those diet changes! I was already quitting coffee after this week and cutting down on gluten. I do not eat a lot of salt and I'm not sure about cutting down on raw veggies and soy...
