Liquid: 100% yes, very hydrated, no dramas.
Salt: now then, I should know about this right, and I should be well salted up. But it occurred to me this morning that I have not had a decent quantity of regular salt for a while. I do salt my food, but I am thinking maybe not enough. Maybe not nearly enough.
Interestingly, after my (very) long walk this morning (over 2 hours), I added some (actually quite a lot of) regular salt to my electrolyte drink that I drink quite a lot of…. it reminded me of what Gatorade used to taste of when it very first came out… ie not sweet, just salty. So, I am thinking that I have been thinking I have been getting enough salt through my electrolyte drink, but I haven’t.
So, @PaulL, my friend, you are not yet proved right, but I have a hunch that you are. I am going to salt myself MUCH more than I have been. And do you know, I think maybe this is why I haven’t been feeling quite as A1 as I could have been. I love carnivore, but there is still something hanging around that is not quite right… I was thinking it was a lingering illness, but maybe maybe it is just salt.
I have been training reasonably hard and this will desalt me. I know that we ketonians and carnivores need a decent amount of salt. I was thinking I was getting this with my electrolyte drink, and maybe I wasn’t. Time to add some serious salt in and see what happens.
I will let you know. Thank you for the excellent challenge. It is simple challenges like this that make these forums so useful and important.
