Messing Around With Electrolytes

I also do this to prevent calf cramps which I get when I don’t supplement electrolytes. I am putting 1 teaspoon of NoSalt or Morton Lite Salt plus one teaspoon of Sea Salt into 16 ozs of water and adding that water to my coffee during the day. This also tends to stabilize my water weight swings which I think is important in determining day-to-day weight fluctations.

  • 1 tsp Lite Salt has 290(*4) mg of Sodium and 350(*4) mg of Potassium.
  • 1 tsp of Sea Salt has 560(*4) mg of Sodium.
Sodium 4 g
Potassium 1.4 g
Chloride 5.8 g

Here’s the KetoGains recommendations.

Totals (2t-Lite Salt, 1t-Sea Salt)
Sodium 6 g
Potassium 2.8 g
Chloride 8 g
Totals (1t-NoSalt, 2t-Sea Salt)
Sodium 4 g
Potassium 2.6 g
Chloride 9.8 g
Totals (1t-Lite Salt, 1t-Sea Salt)
Sodium 4 g
Potassium 1.4 g
Chloride 5.8 g
