eating foods rich in sodium before a weigh in is not advisable since eating salty food causes water retention. If you happen to have a weigh in after consuming a sodium rich food, there may be discrepancies in the weight measured since the weight measured is also composed of water weight
This week my calories were on target. I ate 3-4 servings of a salty food the night before my weekly weigh-in. I was up 2 pounds. :( Is it possible part of the problem was retaining water from excess sodium. Thank you.
