This is water but it's important to put it in picture that even people aware of this are most likely not practicing it


The average man needs about 2.5 grams of sodium per day and about 4.5 grams of potassium. That much salt comes from a single tea spoon. I easily put more than that when making pasta or cooking meat etc and that's a single meal, not considering the sodium that's natural in foods + the salt used in dairy products like cheese, so the salt you should be taking in is literally even LESS than a single teaspoon, which is already TINY if you like salty food like me


And unless you're chowing down on beans, bananas and potatoes (highest accessible sources of potassium), you are most definitely deficient in potassium. Your body recycles these electrolytes to an extent which is why you're not dead, but it doesn't mean you're optimally healthy


Something to think about which might explain why 99.9999% of men are walking around with soy bloated non defined faces (bones and bodyfat considered)


Keep in mind that your body will retain water both with high blood pressure and low blood pressure so lower sodium severely is a retarded idea too

Most electrolyte drinks are dog shit overpriced with very underdosed electrolytes, especially potassium because it's easy to overdose on through supplementation and there are legal restrictions etc


Literally just eat 500 grams of potatoes per day (350 calories, that's nothing), and you're also getting a ton of minerals with it + it will be absorbe much better due to being accompanied by natural organic food matter and fiber


Potatoes are God tier food. Cheap as fuck, healthy as fuck and great looksmax food

The glycemix index argument is retarded because most people eat it with side dishes + there's a very low chance you will develop insulin sensitivity if you're lean

Any lean male either has a naturally high TDEE or is very active and aware of his food intake, this is precisely why so many people are overweight

I was about to agree with you but just seen your other thread about ‘cutting sodium is retarded’.

I’ve been testing sodium carbs potassium for months/years to see the best ratios.

Low sodium/medium carbs/high water is the best to keep bloat low and to not fully deplete glycogen stores.

I regularly eat a high potassium diet but for some reason keeping sodium very low <800mg is the best for facial bloat.

Consider this an updated version of that thread. I don't retract the fact that limiting sodium below your bodily needs is stupid, but considering how dog shit the average human diet is, yes by all means limit sodium because it's EVERYWHERE. Jfc read the labels, soooo much sodium

Yep I agree that’s why 99% of normies have bloated af faces, I’m so glad most of them have 0 idea about sodium.

I eat normal shitty diet McDonald’s etc then go nightclub I am invisible.

I got nightclub on low salt I’m like a celebrity and get multiple girls per night.

Peoples face change so much and people don’t realise how different they would look on a low sodium diet for 3-4 days.

Diet has had no effect on the amount of bloat I experience because I have a naturally lean face you autistic fuck.

Yup. After a shitty day of eating, I look God fucking awful. Bloat and facial fat is literally death. Makes like 1/10 point difference for me


Dude seriously as a rule unless you're on your cheat day or rest day never eat any processed foods in packaging even IF you count calories blah blah blah, sodium is an entire monster on its own to consider

I'm just playing with you dude, but to be serious every single normal teen-early 20s guy in germany is lean naturally, plays sports or works out and eats balanced&healthy for the most part.. no one thinks about potassium, sodium and shit like that. Especially not dudes who live their best lives. If you are fat you are an outcast, unless ultra nt

Legit.

Another huge benefit of potassium I've found is increased muscle size/fullness, and strength. Been conscious of potassium, and hitting my daily requirements for years now.

Would also say that if you track your potassium for a day, and find you're well below 3.5 grams, it's an indicator that your diet is shit. Not that hard to hit your needs with high micronutrient dense foods (spinach, salmon, potatoes)

Exactly, it's a good guideline to whether your diet is shit in general because really only very nutrient dense plant foods (and animal organs which most don't eat) have such a high concentration of magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium. Calcium, zinc, and selenium are easy af to get

Ideally never eat processed food period, and if you wanna eat cheese look at the sodium amount, eat 500 grams of potatoes daily (tons of minerals), and fill one teaspoon of salt and consume that on your food throughout the day. Dont eat the teaspoon of salt if you eat outside or eat any processed food period

How much facial leanness do you experience at that level of potassium intake?

Have you noticed same effect with carbs? Many people claim that carbs give same facial bloat as sodium but I’ve never had that experience even with like 350g per day.

Im almost 99% sure carbs don't cause bloat. Muscles store wayyyy more water than adipose tissue and adipose tissue doesn't store glycogen inside. Now consider the fact that facial muscles around the cheek and malar area in particular are thin and small as fuck. How much bloat could they possibly be causing? It's most likely water from change electrolyte balance


What have you experienced personally?

I live with my family and I don't eat a specialized diet. Don't make it too complicated. Eat two meals that are identical daily, and 1 varied one to not get bored. Potatoes and eggs are as cheap as you can go. If you can't afford that you have bigger problems to worry about

If you're newbie you will grow muscle even on a deficit. If you're fat, do a 500 calorie deficit + lift (if you do cardio eat more)

Same, I always notice whether I’m bloated by feeling my zygos and if I’ve ate loads of salt it would be squishy and I can’t feel them much, then when I’m low salt they feel like they’re popping out and it happens with carbs and without carbs.

I stopped creatine for this reason but like you said their isn’t many facial muscles so I might start it again I’m not sure.

I stopped creatine and oral minoxdil for these reasons too LOL they bloated my face so much. First step is to make sure it's not facial fat tho, Im like 18%, I have a long way to go but even at this fat fuck percentage diet makes a huge difference

Something worth thinking about is that creatine moves more water to your muscles, that could be altering something. It's always fucking water + sodium related man
