    Default Flushing Sodium


    Besides sweating and drinking lots of water, does anything else help
    flush sodium from your system?

    Thanks.

    Do not flush too much sodium out of your system? Heat stroke! That is what
    diuretics and ACE inhibitors do. But, they also flush other necessary
    electrolytes from the body. Inadequate hydration can cause instability in
    your heart beat and cause death.

    Why are you concerned about flushing sodium? Do you suffer from
    hypertension?

    You flush too much, you can die.

    Lots of water is sufficient if it seems to be a problem.

    You need "Salts" if you wash the electrolytes out you are going be in
    trouble.

    I drink a bottle of Gatorade every workout (gym/bike) to replace what comes
    out and I "do sweat"!!!

    I keep Gatorade on hand too if I'm doing a lot of sweating, but that
    generally involves lots of yard work.

    I just drink water at the gym. Lifting generates a lot of sweat, but not
    nearly what doing yard work does!

    Maybe I'm not lifting hard enough. <G>

    Seriously tho', the gym is air conditioned.

    The back yard is not.

    Dude, I'm retired to the Philippines, the gym is free from a former Mr.
    Philippines but he is not going to adjust the weights.
    It is not ACed and this is a very hot place most of the time. I
    loved 24 Fitness and was a member for 10 years and before that it was Gold's
    for about 20 years.

    I take what I can get here and keep a very low profile. I shipped a squat
    rack, bars, plates and hex dumbbells but it's a lot more fun to workout with
    other people. After two years I have found a Philipina that can keep up with
    me and we are going strong, I hope he stays.

    Thanks everyone for the warnings. I understand sodium is important.
    "Flush" is a strong word. How about, "something to help regulate"
    instead?

    I believe I'm sensitive to salt. I seem to be retaining water, judging
    from my chronic puffy eyes. I get migraines and I believe they are
    related to my salt intake (the frequent migraines stopped after I made
    an effort to reduce sodium). I'm trying to reduce the amount of sodium
    I'm eating, but it's hard to find some foods that are low on sodium
    (eg: tuna, salmon). So, I was looking for ways to help my body deal
    with it when I eat more than I want.

    If your diet consists of
    fresh fruit
    fresh vegetables
    Greens
    Legumes
    other vegetables
    Whole grain products
    Fresh meat

    The only things that have any appreciable salt in them is the meat and the
    whole grain products. Pre-prepared foods have way too much salt.

    Fellow Steve, what you want to do is flush _water_, not _salt_, from
    your system. It's the water retention that causes the symptoms.
    Carbohydrates are, in my own experience, as much a culprit as salt.
    Keep your salt low, your carbs low to moderate, and you should be OK.

    If you wish, there are a variety of foods, herbal products, and drugs
    the reduce the amount of water you retain. Certain foods have this
    effect, e.g., I find I tend to weigh less after having a lot of
    asparagus for dinner the night before - Google 'asparagus diuretic' to
    read about this. Herbal products include MHP XPEL - Google that to read
    about it; I've used XPEL to drop weight before a powerlifting meet, and
    everyone around me notices the effect. Last, there are drugs like Lasix
    which will cause dramatic water weight loss over a short period of time.

    Low sodium levels in your body are to be avoided - moderation in dietary
    sodium intake is to be encouraged.

    Just my opinion.

    You're probably right, but for now I'm going with the theory that I
    have a water problem because I have a sodium problem - that the root
    problem is sodium. Well, that's still not the root problem because
    even that implies there's a reason I have a sodium problem...

    You're also right that I can use diuretics. I know of diuretics. I was
    just wondering if there was something to target sodium more directly.

    But, apparently not, and that's cool.

    It's not so easy. I don't put salt on anything. I don't eat any (very)
    processed foods, but it's still hard to find some things that don't
    have salt added. I bought some frozen peas, I just noticed they have
    salt added! Again, the tuna and salmon have a ton of sodium - nearly
    300mg per serving, and I'll have 2 or 3 servings in a meal. Damn near
    a gram of sodium right there. I really don't want to cut out fish. I
    could buy fresh fish, but that's 3x the price, and I'm cheap.

    Fresh fish is $5.00 to $8.00 a pound canned tuna is about $8.00 a pound. 4
    ounces of canned fish has 500 mg of sodium. 4 ounces of fresh fish has 55 mg
    of sodium. A serving of fish poultry or meat is about 3 ounces.

    I get canned tuna and salmon for closer to $2 per pound. I think the
    tuna is less than that. The salmon is the kind with the softened bones
    in it in the 14oz cans - much cheaper than the no-bones kind.

    There are also differences in the type of tuna and salmon I can get
    fresh vs. canned. I like to get light tuna and wild Alaskan salmon for
    their lower mercury content. I can't always find fresh Alaskan salmon.
    I don't remember seeing fresh light tuna.

    That's about what I've seen too. The salmon I have is 270mg sodium per
    serving (63g), 7 servings per can. So, 3 servings for me is 810mg. The
    tuna I have is 250mg per serving (56g). So, 3 servings is 750mg. I get
    the 4 pound cans of Chicken of the Sea chunk light tuna at CostCo. I
    get the salmon at Walmart.

    Sounds like Gatorade at the gym is not such a bad idea then. ;-)

    Some people rinse their canned tuna to reduce the salt, but it's kinda
    icky that way. There are brands of tuna that make a reduced sodium
    product. The worst foods for sodium include luncheon meats along with
    bacon and sausage and of course, canned.

    Many manufacturers make a "no salt added" canned veggie now in a few
    varieties including peas, spinach, green beans, tomatoes and corn. I
    have personally found the no salt added canned goods to be superior. The
    lack of salt helps them to be not nearly as mushy.

    Fresh frozen however is better. Depends on your life style.

    Salmon? High in sodium? Why are you buying it canned? ;-)

    Easiest way to avoid sodium is to simply go with fresh foods wherever
    possible. Fresh meat and fresh veggies along with some fresh fruit is a
    healthier diet anyway.

    Ya just gotta learn to cook...

    Have your blood pressure and thyroid checked. I tend to have a fluid
    retention problem mainly due to hypothyrodism, but I'm also sensitive to
    sodium so I understand exactly how you feel.

    My Dr. gave me a prescription to Torosemide. It works very well and I
    just take it as needed.

    Look for "no salt added" canned fish.
    It's slightly higher in price, but still cheaper than some fresh.

    There are also inexpensive fresh fishes such as Catfish nuggets and
    whiting.

    I happen to like whiting. Prepared properly, it's not too terribly bland.
    Look for fresh frozen fish rather than hitting the fresh seafood counter.

    Eat more chicken but try to avoid the saline injected stuff.
    Lately I've been eating more fresh, reasonably lean pork because I've
    been able to get it for $.97 per lb. :-)

    Fish and chicken has a better fat profile than than other meats.

    Bob,

    How do you figure that canned Tuna is $8.00 per lb.?
    I pay $.33 to $.55 per can and that is for 4 oz.
    That makes it a max of $2.20 per lb.

    Fresh frozen catfish nuggets however are $1.29 to $1.69 per lb. and like
    him, I try to avoid sodium. I can also get fresh frozen whiting for
    $2.99 most of the time.

    I just remembered... Once in awhile here, I can get whole (head off)
    frozen Alaskan salmon for $.99 to $1.49 per lb. It is fantastic baked
    whole, or cut into steaks and grilled:

    Some people on the cooking list called this a "Humpie salmon" and said
    that they are normally cheap, but I don't care. The flesh is mild and
    delicious. Reminds me a lot of lake trout.

    Where's here? That's great. I would buy that. I've never seen Alaskan
    salmon for that price. I live near Chicago.

    As far as finding low-salt canned fish. I'm looking. I looked at three
    grocery stores yesterday, non of them had any no-salt-added canned
    fish except for sardines, which I did buy two tiny packs of, for fun.

    I'm heading out to a couple more grocery stores today to see what I
    can find. Right after I take my no-salt-added chicken and turkey
    breasts out of the oven that I got yesterday, and have lunch.

    I understand that, but variety is the spice of life. And if you know
    what to look for, pork and beef don't have to be high in fat.

    It's just more difficult to cook really lean mammal meat without it
    being dry, but it is possible.

    South Central Texas, Austin area.
    The store is the HEB chain.

    They don't always have it but I get at least 3 or 4 when they do. We
    like fish and it's often non-affordable.

    That sux... The no salt added tuna should be made by Starkist or one of
    the other major brands. It's more expensive but still cheaper than
    fresh, and it always looks like Albacore fillet.

    Sardines are supposed to be a really good source of some EFA's.
    Glad I'm not the only one that tends to cook for nutrition as much as
    taste. It's actually not that hard.

    I've got some chicken drumsticks thawing and a head of cauliflower in
    the 'frige with 1 lb. of white mushrooms for steaming later today. I
    plan to simply pan fry the chicken with no breading or anything in a
    cast iron skillet.

    I love my table top oven.

    substitute *potassium* chloride for regular salt, e.g. Morton's Lite Salt.

    Not that my experience is terribly wide, but I have never heard of
    anyone with a problem with the amount of sodium in their bodies _except_
    as it related to water retention, e.g., my father has congestive heart
    failure, and when he discovered a local take-out place whose food he
    really like, he went from having one dish per day from there to having
    two full meals per day from there and, lo and behold, his feet got
    swollen because he was retaining too much water. He cut out the
    take-out food from this place and his feet went back to normal.

    IOW, I don't think you have a clue what the "root problem" is, and if
    you wish to find out, you ought to solicit the opinion of your doctor,
    and not an Internet news group, before you start messing around with
    your dietary sodium intake.

    Nah, if you've been living here for a long time then you wouldn't feel

    Yeah, it's give you a different feeling and drive to go lift that

    the gym. It keeps you going for that last rep..
