    Question Sodium

    I know I'm not supposed to eat much sodium, but my question is how much is too much? How much is the recommended dose of sodium while on gear?

    average dose for the regular person is about 2400mg of sodium a day - cut this in half while on gear (atleast) if you have anything near high blood pressure cut it down even more (800-1000mg/day) Personally I dropped mine to about 600mg while off gear and about 300mg on gear (this is because I have normally very high blood pressure anyway.) I am a salt addict!!! It was very hard for me to do. But here are a few tips......dont eat any salt cured meats (like sausage, bacon, ham etc etc) watch for sodium content especially in prepackaged foods as it is used as a preservative quite a bit - there is a salt substitute made of potassium chloride out there that personally I cant stand cause it tastse like sulfur - what I do is I have my own mix for a salt substitute - I make a shaker of:

    Seasoning Shaker
    1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
    1 TBSP garlic powder
    1 tsp. basil, ground
    1 tsp. marjoram, ground
    1 tsp. thyme, ground
    1 tsp. parsley
    1 tsp. savory
    1 tsp. mace
    1 tsp. onion powder
    1 tsp. black pepper
    1 tsp. sage

    Yum! By the way - if you are a smoker you tend to salt food heavily more than none smokers would. Good luck bro - hope this helps.
