    If that the case I am not sure how that would fit into your diet. Are you already cutting out your sodium? The change in your diet could be effecting you, have you done this before?

    you always drink distilled water, thats strange. What are your reasons for that? Just curious. Every trainer has certain tips, interested to know why.
