To make a long story short, my daily sodium intake is very high. it's about 6000mg - 7000mg and the RDI is meant to be 2300mg.
I eat a lot of canned tuna and turkey for one. I eat a lot of "healthy" fast food. Stuff that's mainly steamed and low on sugar and sat. fats. None the less it's still high in sodium along with milk etc.
Assuming that it's inevitable to reduce sodium in my diet, can someone tell me some good ways to reduce the sodium concentration in the body?
I was thinking drinking a lot of water (more than a gallon) would 1. dilute 2. excrete excess levels but then one of the side effects of sodium is water retention.
Are there any better ways to reduce the concentration, are there any foods or supplements to reduce it?
