    I think farther along in the thread you recommended Knorr Bullion cubes. I've been having severe leg and foot cramps so I started drinking Knorr bullion to increase my sodium intake. I'm wondering if the increased sodium will cause water retention thus slowing my weight loss (read scale numbers here). Also, you said you take a "cube" twice a day. Each foil wrapped cube is 2 servings, do you do 2 cubes? I also wondered if there was any other "instant bullion" cubes that didn't contain MSG. I'm concerned about inflammation.

    How much sodium in each knorr cube? One cube that we refer to here has about 1000mg.

    Water weight gain will happen at first. Then your body will adjust and you will begin to lose again.

    Demuralist mentioned one this morning without MSG.

    There was great debate about the MSG on Dr. Attia's blog. He said in the grand scheme of things, the tiny amount of MSG in the bouillon is negligible when eating a regularly MSG free diet. He goes into it with great detail on his 'what do I eat' post - but all this dicussion is in the comments section.

    Thanks, I didn't realize the MSG was minuscule. I feel better about that.

    If it still bothers you, I get HerbOx powder (in packets) which is MSG free, but they add disodium glutamate, which is essentially the same thing as MSG.

    thanks for the recaculations!!

    I had forgotten about the BMR calculations, and was just going by MFP. I know it adds on for activity level, but starts off with that 1200 number and I got sucked in. 1500 is completely doable, and means that my 750 cal 'lunch' is a good balance!

    Now, I just need to hold on and be patient!

    I need a fat bomb that is sweetener free. I'm doing a 21 day sugar detox right now and can't have the sugar - stevia is also a no-go. Any suggested fat bombs?

    mono-sodium glutamate. If I remember correctly, it's a neurotoxin. It's used to enhance the flavor of things - used in soups, added to steaks in steakhouses, chinese food, etc.
