    Too much sodium can cause water retention, yes. However, water retention should not cause an effect on fat loss, and whilst it may mean that you do not see any weight loss, be aware that you can still be losing bodyfat with no change in scale weight.

    If you're not making any changes re body mass AND body composition, then take a look at your NUTRITION and/or TRAINING to find the issue and change things up, since it sounds like you have just reached a plateau.

    I am guessing you don't know if you are losing fat or not.

    Instead of guessing just measure your waist at your belly button, your arms and your chest.

    This will give you a quick and dirty set of info to tell you if you are losing fat or not.
