Worth a try

Thank you to the commenter's on my last post. After considering your insight I am going to be really careful this weekend in terms of salt intake. I suspect that Mir may be right in blaming my beloved Mystery Sauce as a possible Trojan salt horse in my current eating. I really, really hope that it's not the culprit and I'm actually salt-licking in my sleep, because it's such an easy dish. That being said, I can't disprove it as I can't read the label, so we shall see.

And hey, if it works at least I'll have a reason at long last.

So, goals for the week are not to use the mystery sauces and to really up my water intake. I'm already working on the water and I plan to have chicken breast, sweet potato and cabbage for dinner.

I didn't realize how high my salt intake was until I used FitDay for a few days. Most things I didn't even realize how high % they were. It totally blew me away.

Good luck.

Coconut water, unsweetened. (Like ZICO brand, or similar. No sugar!)Really. 16 to 24 ounces will counteract serious salt intake without adding too much in terms of calories.

I got a salt and snack attack last night. I did moderate it--ie, I sat down, decided how best to satisfy the insane craving without being WAY WAY over my calorie count, just WAY over. :) And I ate the crisps and the cheetos (one small snack bag each) and some cheese (salty!) and a small amount of salted peanuts.

Basically, I went salt mad.

Then I had 22 ounces of coconut water right after.

That really minimized the bloat impact this am. I can feel it helped a lot.

I need to restock, but that's the best way I've found to safely counteract a salty tooth (and boy, do I get a salt attack now and then.)

hmm, I'm not huge fan of coconut but I can give it a try, it's just finding it unsweetened here. They tend to sweeten nearly all their juices here (even when it says 100%) and it's difficult to read the kana.
