Sodium Loading and Depletion


#1

Now that I am two weeks out from my show I am putting large amounts of salt on my food for one week. Then for the last week of the show I am cutting my sodium levels to agout 2g of sodium a day till mid-week of the show. I trust the guy whos doing my diet but I was curious if anyone could explain to me what exactly this does and why it works? Thanks for your help
