If one wanted to decrease water retention as much as possible, for aesthetic reasons, should they be avoiding salt?
Normally whenever I eat high salt I always bloat and look puffy. So, I restrict salt. However, I was reading this T nation article and it was saying that salt has a host of benefits, including increased metabolism. It was also saying that when someone adds salt, they will have water retention…but it will go away? Is this really true? For those that are accomplished on this site…what are your views on salt?
