    I prefer sea salt with no iodine. It is relatively unprocessed and so it still has all it's trace minerals. Because of this is is course and grey in colour. I have read that the trace minerals help to balance the sodium when ingested by the body, which could be important if you suffer from high blood pressure.

    When I just want salt, I use a large crystal sea salt and nibble on it, one grain at a time.

    OP, glad you're feeling better.
    I never realized the relation between thirst and salt. Once I quite processed, I still don't really salt anything. Some days, like yesterday, I just can't drink enough.

    There for awhile, I would start my day with salted lemon water (prolonged fasting days). Might not hurt to make that a daily habit, huh?

    I find that extra fluid is required for fat metabolism. Were you to go lower fat, you may need less water. Though I'd advise to just carry on doing whatever works, rather than messing around. Some people need more water, some less. It isn't a problem as long as you aren't overhydrated.

    There are different opinions on salt. I have read that celtic salt (gray) is prone to molding and has many contaminants. Pink salts color comes from oxidized iron which is not a good thing to ingest but at the amount in the salt it might not matter. Sea salt does contain trace minerals, some good some bad.

    Personally i use a highly refined salt that has zero impurities with nothing added. Usually this will be a kosher salt or a canning & pickling salt. Table salt has added iodine among other things. I prefer to get my iodine and trace minerals naturally from food.

    Me too - I salt everything but bacon. I use the pink Himalayan or Celtic grey now and find that I use more of it.

    I use an iodine added salt, like Mortons. If you use a non-iodinized salt, be sure to add iodine to your supplements.
