u/dreiter · 17 pointsr/nutrition

Personally I think potassium is the most difficult nutrient to get enough of. To help with my daily goal I have switched over to using lite salt which is an iodized blend of sodium and potassium. Over the past 7 days I have averaged 4500 mg of potassium from dates, soy milk, coffee, carrots, and lite salt.

(To be fair, I am currently consuming an unsustainable amount of dates, but this 11 lb box isn't going to eat itself!)

For most people, leafy greens are the best bet for easily increasing your intake. One cup of cooked chard is nearly 1000 mg.

u/ketokate-o · 6 pointsr/keto

The vast majority of us use Lite Salt (which has 350mg potassium and 290g sodium per quarter teaspoon) or No Salt (which has 610mg per quarter teaspoon). Mix it into broth or ketorade, or just use it on your food throughout the day.

Much easier than taking pills imo!

  1. After lots of research, barring pre-existing medical conditions, I've never heard any arguments against it that don't fall along the lines of "You should eat, because I want to eat, and I don't want to feel like my way is wrong or for you to remind me how little self-discipline I have." LOL.
  2. Fasting won't slow down your metabolism, but losing weight will! A smaller body burns fewer calories--you can't go back to eating your previous diet after losing a bunch of weight, regardless of how you lose it. Also, as /u/Eat_Like_A_Snake pointed out, extreme calorie restriction isn't the same as fasting--it can cause severe problems.
  3. As you start weighing less, it takes less skeletal muscle to move your body around, and less heart muscle to pump blood around your smaller body, so unless you strength and aerobics-train, that muscle that you no longer need will disappear--this is true whether you're fasting or not! Your body does need some protein daily, but there are lots of non-muscle proteins--like that extra skin you don't need any more--for it to recycle! No, fasting is not a zombie. It will not eat your brain. Your body just spent years stocking away the perfect fuel for you (fat) to survive on in the absence of food--body fat even has fat-soluble vitamins in it! Why would it eat your brain instead?
  4. As long as it takes? Angus Barbieri did it for 382 days--and coincidentally, the weight stayed off.
  5. This article contains specifics on which nutrients you need to worry about during re-feeding, but in general, it goes like this: Keep the insulin index of your food down until your stomach has returned to a size that can hold enough calories to fuel your body. Low insulin-index foods are foods which are mostly made of fat, or which have barely any calories. That said, I broke my last 21-day fast with Thanksgiving dinner. LOL. As Dr. Fung mentions, re-feeding syndrome is something which was identified in severely malnourished concentration camp victims, and is probably not a concern for healthy people.
  6. Your body needs protein, and that extra skin is a source of protein--so most of the time, fasting minimizes the loose skin, but occasionally, I'll read about someone who fasted and still ended up with loose skin, so maybe genetics is another factor, or maybe they're not fasting long enough to trigger autophagy.
  7. Ehhh, most medical professionals are knee-jerk scared of anything unfamiliar just like normal humans, and fasting isn't mainstream... yet. So you're highly unlikely to find one that will be okay with this. Before-and-after hormone/endocrine/nutrient panels might be interesting, though!
  8. I'm on Day 40, and here's my list of supplements: Garden of Life Multivitamin, Zhou Lyte Up (as needed), Now Bone Strength, Iodoral cut into quarters, and L-Theanine as-needed when the elevated adrenaline gets to be too much. All of these are fine on an empty stomach. Some cheaper alternatives I've tried are: Morton's Lite Salt is about half sodium chloride/half potassium Chloride; bulk Potassium Bicarbonate is super-cheap and flavorless; and you can take an Epsom Salt bath to get your magnesium. Like most other fasters, my fasting guru is Dr. Jason Fung. He has all sorts of YouTube videos, as well as the Intensive Dietary Management website, and a couple pretty famous books.

    More Notes:

  • The maximum amount of calories you can convert from fat per day is kg of fat * 69.4692 or lbs of fat * 31.5053. It's possible for a person to not have enough body fat to meet their calorie needs, so they'd have to supplement dietary fat. Body fat supplies around 7,717 calories per kg or 3500 per lb. Using this math, if you lost more weight than the calories you burned according to your Fitbit or whatever, or more than your theoretical maximum, it's probably either glycogen (aka "water weight") or food in your digestive tract. I keep losing that extra weight until Day 12-ish.
u/kimburly · 5 pointsr/xxketo

Great!! The keto flu is much improved if you replenish your sodium, potassium and magnesium! So, make sure to drink a cup of broth every day this week... Morton Lite Salt is a good source of potassium and Natural Calm is my favorite magnesium supplement. And if you don't have magnesium or potassium supplements, try some Powerade Zero or sugar-free Gatorade to get those in your system.

Most of all, stick with it through the flu! For me it was only two or three days, and once I was through it I felt so great. More energy, more happiness, less need to sleep all the time... yay keto!

u/microthought · 4 pointsr/fasting

Initial 24hr fast while transitioning off carbs left me feeling a little woozy.

Later, when fasting for 48 hours coming from ketosis, I managed to work out hard (ie. running for 30 minutes with heart-rate 180-200bpm) both fasting days without any problems.

Sounds like you may want to be prepared with Light-Salt saying your diet sounds awfully sodium light, and the extra potassium is also good for your heart when water fasting.

u/carbaholic · 4 pointsr/ketogains

You only need extra sodium in the first few weeks while going keto/low carb because your kidneys are dumping water/sodium during this adaption period.

Regardless of the above information, I still supplement with extra sodium and potassium because I personally perform better with higher amounts. I put salt in my coffee, and put Morton Lite Salt (salt AND potassium) on all of my food and into my water.

I also do 2-4 epsom salt baths, for recovery and magnesium

u/firingallcylinders · 4 pointsr/loseit

Most of the formulations I've ever purchased are advertised as "salt lite" or "half salt", meaning that they are half potassium chloride and half sodium chloride.

https://www.amazon.com/Morton-Lite-Salt-Sodium-Table/dp/B0005YM0UY

I've tried the Nu-Salt or the Salt Substitute which is all potassium chloride and it tastes wrong to me. But that's just me. ;)

u/Targash · 4 pointsr/keto

For potassium I use this.

For magnesium I use this.

I do not take a multivitamin.

I also get a lot of potassium from avocados.

u/stealthhuckster · 3 pointsr/ketogains

How do you recommend getting the electrolytes? Is there a better/tastier option than just drinking lite salt or no salt and water?

u/FlyingPasta · 3 pointsr/intermittentfasting

Broscientifically, potassium is supposed to balance out the sodium intake.

Why do you think you're craving so much salt? It makes sense to want salt after a 48hr fast with lots of water, because you're flushing the necessary sodium out of your body. Do you feel worse if you reduce sodium? Is it purely a craving?

You can also buy this reduced sodium/added potassium salt that I use:

https://www.amazon.com/Morton-Lite-Salt-Sodium-Table/dp/B0005YM0UY/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1536421581&sr=8-3&keywords=reduced+sodium+salt

u/BasqueInTheSun · 3 pointsr/keto

You may want to add a pinch of salt to your water. LiteSalt is awesome and I use it daily. You could also try that pink salt that's super popular.

​

A general tip about adding salt to water. Don't add so much that the water tastes salty. That's way too much. Only add enough so that the water tastes a little off. Like a different type of tap water, if that makes sense.

u/ThisIsMyKetoUsername · 3 pointsr/keto

If you're in the states, look for [this] (https://www.amazon.com/Morton-Lite-Salt-Sodium-Table/dp/B0005YM0UY). It's cheaper if you've got a grocery store that carries it. This has your potassium as well as a a little magnesium, but I don't think the magnesium is that physioactive. It helps me a LOT more than the salt that I used before. Just add a bit, I've heard between a 1/4 tsp and a full tsp, to your bottle of water and, if you want, add some vitamin fortified water additive, like [Mio] (https://www.amazon.com/Mio-Vitamins-Tropical-Naturally-Sweetened/dp/B01I5RHUPM/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1497978718&sr=8-1&keywords=mio%2Bwater%2Benhancer%2Bstevia&th=1). I like this one with the stevia and the additional B vitamins. It's a wonder drink for me!! But, if you're feeling ok, then go with what's been working for you!

u/HotBananaa · 3 pointsr/keto

Well, you can take things to help with the electrolytes, as you should.

You wanna double your Sodium intake. You can use Lite Salt as that has sodium AND potassium in it, and a pretty good amount of potassium as well. Better than most supplements anyway. And then you will wanna buy a magnesium citrate. I also use chicken boullion cubes for sodiumm, i put it in a coffee cup and put hot water in it, then drink it. Tastes like soup kinda.

https://www.amazon.com/Tones-Bouillon-Cubes-Chicken-Ounce/dp/B00COCUM96/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1518037994&sr=1-1&keywords=chicken+boullion+cubes

https://www.amazon.com/Morton-Lite-Salt-Sodium-Table/dp/B0005YM0UY/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1518037860&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=lite+salt&psc=1&smid=A2OEG1SKNGURE1

Its not about "going hard", its not a crash diet. You just figure out your macros and stick to it. Let your body handle the rest.

And no stuff like Powerade has electrolytes in it but nearly enough.

u/tchaikovskaya92 · 2 pointsr/xxketo

I just bought this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0005YM0UY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It has twice more potassium in 1/4 teaspoon, in case you are interested.

u/Dianiko · 2 pointsr/xxketo

In case you didn't know When people are saying No salt they mean the lite salt verities that have a mix of Potassium and Sodium.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0005YM0UY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

(I didn't know this at first)

u/OMADer2762 · 2 pointsr/omad

I think pink sea salt is just hype with too few minerals to make much of a difference. I recommend a quality multivitamin and 50/50 sodium and potassium salt in order to make sure you're getting enough potassium which is an important electrolyte. A splash (teaspoon) of magnesium in your water will give you a good amount of this important electrolyte as well and at a much lower cost than pink salt. Magnesium can be a laxative if taken in higher doses and that effect occurs with both the liquid and pill.

I HATE taking large pills, that's why I use liquid or gummies, but feel free to take pills if you'd like.

Combine these and you will be getting everything you need, and at a lower price than pink salt.

u/Twat_Waffle_ · 2 pointsr/keto

No juices. Too many carbs. Here's my mix for 32 oz water:

1 tsp: www.amazon.com/dp/B003I4P3JS/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_O-Jcvb0KZ4N9K

1 scoop: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00J85WI6W/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_kcKcvb0HD7Z6A

And for potassium 1/8 to 1/4 tsp: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0005YM0UY/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_TdKcvb1DVXMY4

Everyone has their custom recipe just search sugar free electrolyte drink.

u/Throwaway_Keto · 2 pointsr/keto

lite salt is half potassium half sodium instead full sodium link to amazon

u/unique616 · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I make my own Gatorade for cramps. In the spices section of your grocery store, there should be a salt alternative for people trying to lower their sodium intake called Salt Lite. It's a mixture of salt and potassium which also tastes salty. It's supposed to trick you into thinking that you've added more salt to your food than you actually have, but it's a mixture of the same two ingredients in sports drinks. I put 1/4th a teaspoon of that in a water bottle, add a squirt of the store brand (Kroger) Crystal Lite to make it taste good. They make some with B vitamins in it and one with caffeine and B vitamins. I have some of each. I top it off with water and shake it up. I will also add a 1/2 teaspoon of creatine in there if it's the drink I'm going to take with me after breakfast.

I bet that's low magnesium. Get some of these. And for electrolytes, get lite salt.

Ketoade...

1/4-1/2tsp lite salt in 20-28oz of water, add some mio, done.

Pickup some Magnesium Citrate tablets and pop 300mg or so at night before bed.

u/drazgul · 2 pointsr/fasting

> I wonder if that has any affect on it.

Definitely, and even if you didn't, salt is still crucial for water fasts. If you can, try and get something like this https://www.amazon.com/Morton-Lite-Salt-Sodium-Table/dp/B0005YM0UY

Instead of just sodium like in normal table salt, half of it is potassium which is necessary as well like /u/bootelho mentioned already.

u/El-mas-puto-de-todos · 2 pointsr/keto

Lite salt tastes like salt, but it's higher in potassium (which you need on keto). I have not tried a sweet version. I don't have a sweet tooth.

u/Shiftgood · 2 pointsr/keto
u/ArchmaesterOfPullups · 2 pointsr/weightroom

Personally, I just get whatever is the cheapest, which is usually an off brand.

Here is an example of good salt.

Here is an example of what you don't want (lite salt).

Edit: Potassium iodine is fine as it is only used in super small quantities for the iodine content. What you don't want is a large amount of the salt being potassium based, e.g. potassium chloride.

u/strobonic · 2 pointsr/keto

Just to clarify, they're talking about Morton Lite Salt which contains Potassium.

I supplement with chelated Magnsium (have done since before keto) as pretty much everyone could stand to have more. Potassium is more challenging to compensate for nutritionally on keto. I haven't heard much good about supplementation besides the rec's here re: lite salt and aiming for potassium rich greens in your diet.

Electrolytes are super essential. A lot of people also swear by epsom salt baths!

u/KetoConnect · 2 pointsr/keto

A lot of people get Lite Salt - Which like half sodium and half potassium.

You're probably going to want some plain old table salt to go along with that though. I just get Sea Salt from Trader Joe's.

u/Ruffian8 · 2 pointsr/xxketo

Those potassium deficiency cramps are kicking in! I had really bad charlie horses in my calves for what seemed like a week - it hurt to walk. Once I upped my potassium, they went away! Lite Salt can help - sprinkle it on your food that needs salt, or sprinkle some in the water you're drinking.

u/breederofdragons · 2 pointsr/TeamSandcastle

First off, I am by no means an expert in keto, and almost everything I have learned has been from /r/keto, and trial and error. This may also be a novel, as I am very long winded...

FOOD

With food, I found that most processed foods were off limits. This was hard at first because that's just about all I ate. Keto forced me to prepare every meal, every day, from scratch. I have no problem with that, as I LOVE cooking, and as a SAHM, I have the time for it. Some people find this very hard to do, and it makes keto very stressful for them. I'm sure there is a way to do it without being a good cook and having oodles of time, but you'd have to refer to someone else for advice there.

As for what foods worked for me, we ate a lot of ground beef, sausage, and pork. Anything that is usually on a bun/tortilla/rice, I just made into salad. Hamburger salad with (reduced sugar) ketchup and mayo for dressing, taco salad with no shells, fajita salad, stir-fry salad, etc.

My side dishes were usually spinach, cauliflower, asparagus, zucchini, or broccoli. There are a ton of ways to prepare them all, so it didn't get as boring as it sounds.

For snacks, I like them easy, so I'd have things like string cheese with pepperonis, handful of almonds, lunchmeat rolled with sliced cheese, tuna/chicken/egg salad with pork rinds, or leftovers. If I could just pull it out of the fridge, it was fair game.

I found millions of recipes and ideas just by googling whatever I wanted with the word "keto". For example, google "keto lasagna" and you will find a bunch of recipes where people have already figured out how to reduce the carbs. When you have learned some tricks from others, it becomes easy to start to see what you can do with your own favorite meals.

My biggest piece of advice for food is: do NOT drive yourself crazy trying to "keto-fy" everything. For example, keto fried chicken is easy, just 'bread' the chicken with crushed pork rinds, and cook like usual. Bam. Done. Then there are recipes for bread that call for physllium husk and xanthum gum. They are do-able, but will just make you crazy and leave you craving the real thing. Keep it simple, especially at first.

ELECTROLYTES

For electrolytes, I believe the recommendations are 5000mg of sodium, 1000mg of potassium, and 300mg of magnesium. For sodium, I just salt my food to taste, though I really like salt, so it was easy for me. My husband found that he can't salt his food that much.

For potassium, I bought Morton's Lite Salt at my grocery store. I used it for salting most of my food, and use it to make my own 'sports drink'. (I've found that most sports drinks contain high carbs, and the ones that don't contain so little electrolytes, you'd have to drink a ton of them.) 1/4 tablespoon in a bottle of water with a liquid 'drink enhancer' like Mio, though I use a store brand, and you have 350mg potassium and a little sodium knocked out. I usually did this 2 times a day.

For magnesium, I take a 500mg supplement with my multivitamin everyday. It's the only electrolyte that I needed to take a supplement to reach. You should be getting a lot of these from your foods, but sometimes it just doesn't work that way.

LOGGING

Log everything you put in your mouth. Every gram of every bite, even your supplements, and you will know what you need and where you are. Some people can do 'lazy' keto and have success, but I found that I needed to see my numbers everyday. MyFitnessPal is amazing for this, and after using it a while, it becomes even easier. You can add recipes to it as you cook, and get an accurate macro count. You can log your new 'sports drinks' and know if you are lacking in something. My husband and I were religious about logging, and I think that is why we had so much success. It is a lot of work, but it leaves you with answers to questions of "have I had enough ___ yet?"

BEING STRICT WITH CARBS

I had a limit of 20g carbs and tried to NEVER go over that. Some days I saw 21g or 25g. Very rarely, I would have a 30g day. My reasoning for a super hard cap of 20g was 'hidden carbs'. Like I replied before, some things will be labeled as 0g carbs, because if it is less than 0.5g, they legally can. Two servings leads to one 'hidden carb.' Sometimes, MFP counts are off a little, especially veggies, and you don't want to ruin your day. I've read that people can stay in ketosis under 50g carbs, but I didn't want to near that. Capping at 20 guaranteed I stayed in ketosis, and theoretically gave me a 30g cushion, should I have missed something. I do not think I ever came out of ketosis, so it seemed to work well for me.

CHEAT DAYS

My husband and I are proud to say that in 100 days, neither of use had cheat days. We did, however, have days where we said "fuck it" to MFP and just relied on our knowledge of our food to keep on track, but this didn't happen until after a couple of months. I am not against cheat days, but they can knock you out of ketosis, make you retain water, and, in my experience, going from few carbs to a lot of carbs and back makes my body feel like crap. I say that if you need to 'cheat' make it one meal, and still try to keep the carbs as low as possible. Need french fries once a month to live? Have a bunless burger and your fries. It's roughly 70g carbs for a large McD's fries, so you've gone way over, but if it is for your sanity, once in a long while won't completely derail you, just make a couple days a little wonky.

HAVING A PARTNER

This run was my third go at keto. The first two I didn't last over a month. Part of that was my lack of knowledge, and part was doing it alone. I live with my husband, 4 year old, and mother in law. The first two times I did keto, I did it alone. The first time, I found that I was cooking almost 4 different meals for every meal of the day: me on keto, something for my picky kid, gluten free for my MIL, and something 'regular' for my husband. That's 12 different meals a day. I love cooking, but not that much.

The second go around my kid was a little less picky, my MIL dropped the gluten free diet, and my husband is extremely easy to please with food. I learned how to make one meal that worked for everyone, by making different sides for myself and the others, or adding what I needed, like excess fats, after the fact.

What I found most beneficial from ketoing with my husband is that I have someone to commiserate with. Online support definitely helps, but having my husband to complain to was much more helpful, as well as instantaneous. I would tell him I want mashed potatoes, he would say that he does too. We would laugh a little, cry a little, and resign ourselves to our mashed cauliflower. Also, his successes made me just as happy as my own.

Well, I hope some of this helps! Sorry that it is a wall of text, but like I said, long winded. I like sharing my experience, because I really endorse keto as a great tool. I am currently coming off of keto, but have decided to keep my cap to 50g carbs because I have never felt better than I do when limiting them. This may keep me in ketosis, but that is no longer my main concern. I know that I have keto in my arsenal now, and I will return to it if I ever need to. Good luck, and feel free to ask any other questions you have, and I will be happy to try to help!

u/sassytaters · 1 pointr/keto

Have you redone your macros lately? You don't need as many calories now as you did 30lbs ago. And congrats on being 30lbs down. That is awesome. I would use the keto calculator on the sidebar, set yourself at sedentary even though you walk every day, put it at a 20% deficit and see how it lines up with what you've been eating. If it does match up, I'd lower calories by about 100 and see if that helps. The calculators are only estimates; sometimes we have to tweak. You got a food scale? If not, get one. The things you're eating are high calorie and underestimating on a couple things a day can make hundreds of calories' worth of difference.

Don't know your location, but potassium supplements in the U.S. are limited to 99mg, which is nowhere near what we need. I looked up Salt for Life and see it has about half the sodium and potassium of Lite Salt. Get Lite Salt if you can. It's what I use. I put 1/4tsp in 20oz bottles of water and drink them all day long. It's got 290mg of sodium and 350mg of potassium per 1/4tsp compared to Salt for Life's 140mg sodium and 180mg potassium.

u/marshmallowwisdom · 1 pointr/keto

Congratulations! I'm about one month in but haven't made it official with the Ketostix. Drink plenty of water and get yourself some Lite Salt or other source of sodium, potassium, and magnesium. It's comforting to see the great support in this thread.

u/purplepuffins · 1 pointr/keto

Lite salt is a popular option. People commonly mix it with water and a drink mix of choice (such as Mio) and call it "ketoade." I get my magnesium from a combination of a multivitamin and food sources (nuts, seeds, dark leafy greens, etc.).

YES lol, look up "lite salt" https://www.amazon.com/Morton-Lite-Salt-Sodium-Table/dp/B0005YM0UY.

It's 350mg potassium and 290mg sodium, I guarantee you probably aren't getting any potassium and it's raping you.

u/GirlEngineerHere · 1 pointr/100DaysofKeto

Tip: I just cook with [lite salt](http://www.amazon.com/Morton-Lite-Salt-Sodium-Table/dp/B0005YM0UY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1452041115&sr=8-1&keywords=lite+salt
) and use that whenever I would use salt. At the beginning I just dissolved a tablespoon in water and chugged that in the mornings.

u/ExhaustToQuest · 1 pointr/keto

Lite salt is table salt that is (approximately) 50% sodium chloride and 50% potassium chloride.

The traditional "healthy" community uses it as a way to reduce sodium in the diet. However, it can also be used as a cheap electrolyte source also.

Amazon link as an example

u/zjbrickbrick · 1 pointr/keto

Lite Salt. It's basically salt with less sodium and potassium added. Most definitely cheaper in stores however.

u/djmor · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Half (or light) salt is half sodium- half potassium- chloride, so it's good to use instead of regular table salt if you need extra potassium in your diet.

u/madame_lulu · 1 pointr/askmath

Oh, I overlooked the link. This is interesting - 70mcg per 1.5 gram or 47mcg per gram and that's 45% of daily value (DV). Where did 120mcg/g come from?

The other salt contains 40% of DV per serving of 1.4g. According to National Institutes of Health, the DV for iodine is 150 mcg for adults, so that's roughly 60mcg or 0.06mg per 1.4g.

u/mhgl · 1 pointr/PSMF

Chloride, but I would recommend just using Lite Salt. Potassium can be dangerous, so most OTC supplements are very under dosed.

I found this, but it is crazy expensive. Funny because it costs 8.50 on amazon US https://www.amazon.ca/Morton-Lite-Salt-Sodium-Table/dp/B0005YM0UY

u/ghostforest · 1 pointr/xxketo

This is really sounds like an electrolyte issue. If electrolytes are off, water and macro changes won't do much. I use Morton's Lite Salt on everything (it's half sodium salt and half potassium salt). Buy it at your supermarket, it's usually right near the regular salt, but in a smaller container. I also drink Electromix drink packets for potassium and magnesium - I buy those at Whole Foods or you can get them online. Finally, I also take magnesium malate capsules. With that regimen, I get no cramps and have never had any keto flu and feel great.

If you're still twitching, my money is on your electrolytes still being way too low. I aim to get at least 1000-1500 mg of extra potassium a day above what I get from diet. I also aim to get 300-600 extra mg of magnesium. And, salt what you eat.

u/PrincessPlatypus · 1 pointr/keto

It doesn't need to be epsom salts. Look for a liquid magnesium citrate like this. It might be in a grocery store near the laxatives, or you might find it in a drug store or pharmacy. That's just one option for magnesium. Another is to get it in pill form. You might be able to find or order something like this.

For potassium, see if you can find something like Lite Salt or Lo Salt. I typically find these in the spice aisle of my grocery store.

Lite salt is a mix of regular salt and "no salt"/Potassium chloride.

There doesn't seem to be science that pink salt is better salt for you than other salts, even if it's often recommended.

I used to get these so horribly, it felt like the muscle was literally trying to rip itself out of my leg, and it was all I could do not to scream. They've subsided in recent years.

One of the cheapest sources of potassium is "lite" salt, such as this. I've found that calcium pills help too.

Substitute normal salt in your recipes for this:

If you are needing canned items, look for the cans that say low sodium, or no sodium added.

> Ahh that's right. I need bananas.

F- Bananas. They rot, and take up space. Grab some Lite Salt. Just pour it into the water. (dont go crazy)

It is a big hit with /r/keto users, due to the amount of water consumed.

And you will be drinking more water than the average person, so your % of daily value will need to be more than 100%. You drink a lot of water = you flush your system = Electrolyte Imbalance. Keep a eye on potassium, salt and magnesium.

It can be found in any grocery store, and has 350mg per 1/4th tsp. You will not find that ratio anywhere else. That is about the same as eating a 7" banana.
