On two of my last 8 days I added 3/4 tsp of salt to my daily water jug. On the mornings after those days I noticed that my weight went up by 3-5 lbs. And of course it’s probably water retention. It happened again last night.
So I went back into the Cronometer app and looked at my sodium totals for each day. Looks like I’m probably getting plenty of salt each day based on the foods that I’m consuming like ham, cheeses, occasional pork rinds, etc. Every day thus far the app showed that my sodium has been around 3500 and some days even closer to 6!!! Crazy! On none of the days was it ever under 3000.
So yeah, think I’m just gonna stop adding additional salt. Just doesn’t make any sense to me to add over that amount since obviously it seems to be making me retain water and not flushing out any extra. I don’t know.
