Since I've switched to cooking most of my own food, my sodium intake has dropped dramatically. In fact, about a year ago I had a conversation with my doctor about whether there was a minimum amount of sodium that I needed each day.

"Yeah, but you'll never get that low."

"Umm, I'm eating about 500-700mg of sodium per day right now."

"Wow, really? That's surprising, but it's not too low."

If you've suddenly cut your sodium intake you're probably shedding water at a prodigious rate.
