    Oh my gosh! I am so thirsty. Is this normal?

    I woke up this morning and couldn't quite quench my thirst, but as the day has progressed I have gotten thirstier and thirstier. Has anyone else had this issue?

    PB for 15 days

    Today's diet

    -1 large glass coconut water (post workout)
    -Chocolate coconut smoothie (1/2 can coconut milk, 1 scoop of unflavoured/unsweeted whey, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 tbsp maple syrup)
    -green salad with (lemon and EVOO), balsalmic-glazed chicken drumsticks
    -beef stir fry (beef, assorted bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic) sauteed in CO/butter
    -4 oz of milk

    Today's workout

    HIIT - warm/up, 6 x 15 second sprints, cool/down

    I am not diabetic, nor have I ever been diagnosed pre-diabetic, but I did do my blood-sugar, after dinner, just to be certain. It is 6.7 mmol/L or 120 mg/dL, which post-meal is normal.

    So has anyone else experienced this? Should I be concerned? Thanks.

    You getting enough sodium?

    I always find I'm thirsty as hell if I don't get enough salt.

    That was my thinking too.

    That's possible. I've never much been in the habit of salting my food, although I am getting better.

    I will give it a try. Thanks.

    I agree. That dry, non quenchable thirst usually is from an imbalance of sodium.

    Sipping a glass of lemon and salt right now. It seems to be helping. So note to future self, do not be afraid or forget to salt your food.

    Thanks for all the quick responses.

    Yeah, I went from NEVER salting my food to salting everything but bacon.

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

    Is there a salt that is best? Is regular table salt okay, or is sea salt or himalayan pink salt better to use?
