Good luck to all!
    I have used Real Salt and it does not cause any of the symptoms that normal table salt does. It is salt in its pure unrefined form and the balance of minerals seems to not make BP rise or water to be retained. Real sea salt will also do this, but real sea salt is a grey and sticky product, not the white refined salt that is mostly sold. The Real Salt is pink. Himalayan salt is another unrefined salt. Here is more information. Maybe worth looking into!

    Thanks Mrs. for your post. I recently picked up himalayan salt before reading your post. I had read somewhere that it was one of the best options

    I was reading lbs to inches and found this passage:

    Salt and Reducing
    While we are on the subject of salt, I can take this opportunity to explain that we make no restriction in the use ofsalt and insist that the patients drink large quantities of water throughout the treatment. We are out to reduceabnormal fat and are not in the least interested in such illusory weight losses as can be achieved by depriving thebody of salt and by desiccating it. Though we allow the free use of salt, the daily amount taken should be roughly
    the same, as a sudden increase will of course be followed by a corresponding increase in weight as shown by thescale. An increase in the intake of salt is one of the most common causes for an increase in weight from one day tothe next. Such an increase can be ignored, provided it is accounted for, it in no way influences the regular loss of fat.


    I thought it was directly to the point of this thread.

    Try the Mrs. Dash line! You need to read each label as some do have sugar, but I've found a few that don't and seem to do well on those.

    I think we are all in agreement that the weight gained due to increased salt intake is water weight.

    My point was that although this is water weight (in addition to adding to the number of the scale) it causes uncomfortable bloating (for me). So rather than eliminate salt, I use it more in moderation in addition to drinking a lot of water.

    Don't know about the others, but that's my two cents. I know that it's water weight. But when I eat to much sodium (especially when I cook with braggs), I get bloated no matter what. So I eliminated it I do ignore water gain when I know I ate too much salt the previous day (but I've had few days like this since ditching the braggs and just using broth to cook with some sea salt or "Real Salt" (thanks Mrs.)
