I would like to get clear in my mind this issue of sodium in the diet. Natural bodybuilders will routinely salt their food, the reason being that the kidneys become efficient at excreting sodium (which takes water with it). By doing this, when they sodium restrict near contest time, the kidneys are “primed” to relase even more water. Two questions:
- How valid is the theory? (It sounds okay).
2)Sodium is certainly a neccesary element for nutrient transport, but do you see a need for adding it to our food for everyday use OR is that which is naturally in our food and supplements enough?
