I just came into an understanding of something that is Revelutionary for all of the 811rv newbies like me.
Not that no one has ever said this before, but this is big for me. It may be big for someone else, too.
Salt + Water = Bloating
Yes. Such a simple equation came to me while reading the forums. Yes. Someone else may have said this through my 29 days on 30 BAD, so I attribute this awakening knowledge to all the 30BADers in the forums!
811rv is a very water rich diet. If you add your salts for taste to your water rich foods, then you are asking for some horrendous bloating... among other problems that salt causes.
What will I do about it?
So today, I throw out all of my salts and dressings that I was using just to add a bit of taste to my food. That's it. A simple solution for a simple problem.
