sodium intake..do you notice weight gain?

hey everyone..just wondering if you guys have ever noticed if you take in too much sodium one day, if you feel bloated the next day or see no movement on the scale? just wondering if thats the case??

thanks :-]

YES!! I'm very sensitive to sodium so anytime I eat bacon or pepperoni, too much sodium period, I will see a gain and will get puffy. It takes 2 days of drinking an extra liter of water to get it back to normal.

At first yes, I use to avoid bacon like the plague because of it. But you know what once I stuck to my carb limit and continued to eat the bacon, and I eat tons of bacon, I never see the water weight anymore.

The few times I consume excess sodium from eating out, there IS a measurable wt. gain. Returning to on plan regimen alleviates the effect a day or so later though.

No real "bloating" though.

I have issues with sodium - it always makes me retain water and the weight goes north a bit. Processed meats tend to be a far worse culprit than say a little salt on fresh veggies, so I minimize them.

Not with my own food at home, which I salt liberally, but if I eat out, especially Chinese food, I can retain 5-6 lbs of water the next day!

I rarely eat out

I have always been a saltaholic and that is one thing i refused to give up eating this way, even with my dad always telling me how bad it was for me while watching me lose tons of weight eating it and eating lc...lol It doesnt usually bother me at all unless i just really have alot. I do notice feeling a little swollen after eating chinese food but thats about it.

This is me. I was up 5 pounds after steamed chicken & broccoli with gluten-free soy sauce recently! I know to stay off of the scale the next day!

Yes, in my sixties now and I have recently become salt-sensitive.
Not a major gain from it though. Usually affects lower extremities.

i am pleased to say that i am moderate in my salty food quantities.

as a rule, i do not add salt in my cooking, or at the table. If i have an occassional hot dog dinner, or sausage, or chinese meal(the latter being quite often), i guess due to the fact that i am always drinking water (and diet soda, coffee, tea), I still show a weight loss every week when i am on-plan (which i have consistently been doing for 40 days). If i start denying myself this, or that, i am left with "a diet". Then, next step-OFF PLAN EATING. Pass that sausage, huh? Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

Cheese, sausage and salami all are fairly high in salt. When I retain water the 1st place I notice it is in my fingers.

Overall I'd say yes, but I have noticed I am less sensititive to this after low carbing for a month. Also, if I don't eat enough sodium, I feel kinda punky and light headed. So, I try to keep it in balance.
