Target sodium for cutting?

#1 Postby Broccules » Sun Apr 15, 2012 10:23 pm

I was just curious as to what my sodium limit for the day should be if I want to keep water weight off? I didn't know, so I just stopped using salt completely, and while it seems to be working rather well, my food is pretty bland lol.
I'll think of something cool to put here eventually...

my trainer told me to have as much added salt as i want. im eating clean foods but i add my own sea salt. he said there is too much hype about salt and water weight, and that it only makes a small difference and thati only need to cut it out one day from my contest...ive dropped 20 lbs eating all the salt i want...hes a natural pro who has placed first many times..and if i couldnt add salt to my food i would have gone insane psychologically, and phsysically he said you need plenty of it anyway.

Hey Jungleinthefrunk, I once heard Dorian Yates say something very similar to that.

Sick! Now I can enjoy my tofu... lol. I did find though that if you make something spicy enough, it doesn't really matter much what it tastes like. :P

On an unrelated note, after perusing jungleinthefrunk's facebook page I've decided she is a major hottie. And on a related note I looked up this article by John McDougall on salt that you may find informative. http://drmcdougall.com/misc/2008nl/aug/salt.htm

You thought wrong, I could see 4 pics, and all of them look wonderful. So, if you don't want creepy stalkers like myself clicking on your link and viewing all four of those bad boys (girls), you better take action.
