Re: Retaining Water
I just wrote this about an hour ago in the September Mommies thread. I have been retaining water & have been really watching the salt. Here's the paragraph I just wrote...copied & pasted from that thread:
"I've been doing an experiment over the last couple days so far with my salt intake, because I have been swelling a lot. I have completly cut out salt. I'm only eating whole foods with no flavoring or preservatives. Only fruit, vegetables, and unseasoned chicken. No salad dressing, or even a bite of junk food. Only drinking water and decaf iced green tea. I cannot believe how much I'm peeing over the last couple days, but more surprised at how much urine is coming out. I have been peeing a lot for quite a while now, but the amount of urine up to now has been minimal. I actually feel thinner & lighter, and my swelling is gone. My doctor has been talking to me about my weight gain, yet he is commenting he feels most of my weight recently is fluid...because I HAVE been eating really well. I really think I'm just extremely sensitive to salt...more sensitive than average. I'll be curious to see how much I weigh when I go back on Monday."
Hope that helps.
