    I had my cheat meal today, and in the process took in 3,000mg of sodium. What's the best way to flush this much sodium out of my body? I know I need to drink, but how much should I be drinking per hour, etc.?

    HELP

    Any diuretic will flush sodium along with fluids out of your body. Typically it's naturally gone by the next day anyways (I think). You're only 500mg above RDA, it's nothing to worry about.

    I was 235 about 3-4 months ago and now i'm 196. The maximum weight i'm allowed to be at for my height (5'10") is 179, so that's my goal. I have weigh-in's at my recruiters office every Monday and if i'm not making consistent progress I get thrashed :noes:.

    My progress has really slowed down over the past few weeks, I was losing like 3-5 pounds per week but now i'm only losing ~1 pound a week or so, even though i'm PT'ing hard everyday and following my extremely strict diet (except for my cheat meal :x: ).
