Sodium & fat loss
I've noticed that since I've tried to up my protein % that my sodium has skyrocketed. Tuna - high, deli meats - high, egg whites & veggies ( I add salt because I like it!), pickles - very high but low in cals! I'm in my late 20s and my blood pressure is low (lower than 120/80). I know all of this excess sodium is not good for me. I also know i am retaining water weight because of it. I am fine with this since my goal is to lose fat not water. My question is: will excess sodium impede fat loss. I figure once I get to my goal weight, it will be easier to lower the sodium because I dont plan on eating so much high sodium protein and pickles!
