Salt

10:20am:
Yesterday when I prepared salmon steak for supper, I added Lawry's Garlic Salt for flavor. Later in the evening, I noticed that the area of my abdomen appeared to have doubled in size! I could tell how much bigger by pinching the fat.

This morning, when I pinch my abdomen, it appears to have reduced back to the size it had been!

I can draw no other conclusion other than my eating the salt was responsible. If I am determined to reduce the fat in my abdomen in order to be able to see the muscles underneath, I can no longer eat salt.

Note: Enlarging of the fat on my abdomen is due to water retention. Not an increase in my fat.

Toughest exercise
The toughest exercise that I do at 24 Hour Fitness is rising up from the hands and knees position.

First I must get one foot flat on the floor. Then my other foot flat on the floor. Next, rise so that I am standing straight up. This involves both leg strength and balance.

Some of my current readers may not be aware that I have been blogging for over 15 years. We have an "Archives" link at the top of our Blog page. Hardly any readers ever use our Archives page.

We went back to November 25, 2008, and published a pic of Boid #1 which is so adorable!

  1. Salt is a dietary requirement George. Maybe you're going a tad far in your actions to lose weight?

    1. Hi Don,

      It may appear to you that I am trying to lose weight. This is incorrect.

      My exercise and nutrition programs are designed to build muscles and reduce midsection fat.

    2. You'll get dehydrated without salt. Brother in law thought he'd cut out all salt and passed out at job site from dehydration.

  2. If it came after dinner & was gone by morning it's not fat.

    1. Hi Rob,

      You are correct. It's water retention due to consuming salt at supper.

  3. Use garlic powder rather than garlic salt.

    1. Hi Elaine,

      Thank you so much for your Garlic Powder suggestion. 😎

      I researched garlic and found that it is one of the foods that will cause me to release fluids [water].

  4. Iodized salt is one of the few ways to get iodine which is needed by the body.. Research it George, if you don't want goiters .

  5. Yes, George, you are correct; my doctor has told me to eat plenty of ocean fish for iodine, and I take an iodine supplement (Synthroid) to assist thyroid function. Back in the 1970s, I had part of my thyroid gland removed. Your thyroid gland does a big job in regulating your metabolism after you eat your meals.
