Welcome to the team! The question you ask is interesting. Sadly, there is no real answer to it, as it mainly depends on your body. Everyone is different in how long it takes for their body to lose weight, lose water, etc. For some people here on Spark, starting a diet and watching the calories, carbs and sodium intake will result upto a 5 pound loss the first week, mainly being water. I know in cutting my sodium, it took, with doctor prescribed diuretics, about two weeks to lose the extra water weight. But, then again....everyone is different, it all depends on their metabolism, chemical makeup, how their body processes things and also how much water you drink too. Water is a great way to flush the body of sodium, toxins, fat, etc. So I wish I had a definitive answer for you, but it all depends on you.
Congrats on deciding to lower your sodium and eat healthier! It is a great way to live! Best wishes on your new lifestyle adventure!
