If your struggling with understanding the Paleo diet, meal timing and preparation don’t miss this meeting. Nutrition is a key component of your health, fitness, energy levels, disease prevention, and longevity.
Salt: An Athlete’s Essential Mineral
We are not sedentary mammals consuming processed food—Insulin is controlled, sodium intake is low due to whole foods, and excretion is high.
Excretion via training: Thee most excreted mineral from sweating; if we are training 6+ times/week, we are losing a lot more than the average person
Inadequate dietary sources: Think clean, dialed “Paleo”-esque diet…think there’s enough sodium there? Think again! Natural sources include sea vegetables, fish, shellfish, beets, carrots, celery, spinach, and turnips….but those aren’t always in everyone’s diet.
Adrenal Dysfunction: Most folks will have some form of this at some point in their training; cortisol levels drop, as do levels of aldosterone, which regulates sodium balance. They need for sodium becomes even greater. This is why I recommend adding 1/4tsp to each liter (1000mL, 33oz) of water.
Endurance Athletes: More essential than any other group, due to prolonged exertion, increased fluid intake, and risk of hyponatremia.
